Schultze - Score and Tempi
During the workshop we'll positively work through two movements of Schultze's Sonata no. 1 in E minor for two flutes, before a run-through to conclude. It will sound and feel like you and I are duetting live!
Click here to download the first movement, Larghetto, from Sonata no. 1 in E minor for two flutes by Schultze
Click here to download the second movement, Allegro, from Sonata no. 1 in E minor two flutes by Schultze
1. Please play flute 1 in the first movement, Larghetto; for the second movement, Allegro, please play flute 2.
2. You will be asked to mute your microphone whenever you play; this means that you won't be able to hear other class members (nor they you), however you will be able to hear and see me, allowing us to play in a live duet!
3. You are welcome to use your own copy of this music, if it matches exactly; if so, make sure you have bar numbers in place for each movement, for ease of rehearsal. Where scores are available as separate parts, it is highly recommended to use the full score, for extra cues from the other part.
4. The music is in the public domain, although editions are subject to copyright, which is why I've sent you copyright-free editions of each movement from www.flutetunes.com
5. If you wish to include the cadence-point trills, they are indicated by tr or a plus sign; trills in this era would have started on the upper note, on the beat.
5. Repeats are not to be played please.
6. In the Larghetto a metronome mark of 132 per quaver is a good guide; 96 per crotchet is a good aim for the Allegro. We're not here to break speed records, we're here to have a fun, satisfying and musical live ensemble session!
