“Discovering Music of Bach, Beethoven and Haydn”
My graduate degree recital consists of a unique combination of the cello repertoire. The program includes the following pieces: Bach’s Cello Suite No. 3, Beethoven’s Sonata for Cello and Piano No. 4, Op. 102, and Haydn’s Concerto for Cello and Orchestra No. 2. The chosen repertoire gives me an advantage to compare and contrast performance practice and musical aspects of the pieces in order to make my personal input into the musical interpretation. The project is based of research on two types of information: pedagogical research and literature material; followed by final solo recital.
The pedagogical research allows me to have a better understanding of how to solve the technical difficulties of the chosen pieces. The literature aspect of the research deals with the history, publishing and performance practice. Because the recital pieces were written during the baroque and classical eras, the amount of surviving information gives cellists enough freedom to choose their own bowings, fingering, bow strokes, and even change notes. In order to create a historically informed performance, my research will include a study of the manuscripts of the original copies of music.
