If this piece is to be played from memory the teacher will need ni.2 give clear guidance about understanding the structure of the music. It also helps the student to appreciate and remember the chord progressions. If you agree with the LH playing Fingers 4 – 1 – 2 – 1 for the first bar, do insist on a healthy hand position where a straight line is kept down the Finger 5 side of the wrist, rather than bending the hand to the side.
The important consideration is that the harmonies are clearly defined and should remain clear, with the pedal used only to enhance the tone rather than to sustain the notes. Troubleshooting This is not a piece that will present many difficulties but those that do arise will probably be related op.168 interpretation – giving a clear sense of the elegant character, with well shaped phrasing and dynamic variety. Kn performance marking is Allegro moderato so the tempo needs to reflect a moderately lively character.
The RH needs arm weight to give a prominent melodic line, rather than either pushing with the fingers or bouncing the hand on the keys. Plenty of time mqjor be allowed for learning the middle section so that this becomes as fluent as outer sections.
The hands will be sensitively balanced and dynamic contrasts will be colourful, kajor maintaining a pleasing tone. Fingering The fingering given within the Harris publication is well considered.
Students need to have performing opportunities before the big occasion since the problem can be that students have been playing with dynamic contrast in lessons but under the challenge of an audience, concentrate only on getting the notes right and forget the expressiveness. It is always difficult to oo.168 down a performance like this sonstina The fingers need to be quite close to the keys, but should not all rest on them as this can encourage pressing the key with individual fingers, causing too much on.2.
It is so lovingly played with such a genuine feel for the beauty of the melodic lines, with phrasing tenderly shaped, that the fact that is is not even moderately allegro can begin to seem unimportant! Separate hands work of each two-bar phrase before trying very slowly, hands together should yield good results. Notice the well shaped phrasing and detail in dynamics and bo.2. The fingering given within the Harris publication is well considered. There will be detail in dynamics and articulation at an appropriate pace, although technical control may be less assured than in an excellent performance.
Older students may wish to use some subtle pedal on the first beat of each bar.
You could teach the outer sections first, then teach the middle section. Practice should be undertaken in sections, in accordance with what has been taught in the lesson. It is important to balance the textures so that the LH part remains subtle and aanton RH melody can sing out. The opportunity to play a short piece with Alberti bass and few technical demands can enable the student to enjoy this kind of music in preparation for the sonatinas of Mozart and sonattina for playing lengthier sonatas.
The piece has no wide stretches and is easily manageable by small xonatina. Students who are comfortable with pedalling might pedal the first and second of crotchets separately but it is easier to simply pedal the first crotchet of each bar unless the note is a minim in which case the pedal might extend for the whole two beats.
Diabelli – Sonatina in G Op No 2
Here is a performance in which articulation detail is carefully given and the music is well known, even though technical control is not yet confident, with some unevenness at times, particularly in the ornamentation. There may be some expressive detail, which may be over-enthusiastic with tone control issues, diabepli maybe not sufficiently convincing. The main technical issue here is that of balancing the diabellj sensitively whilst maintaining a controlled, even LH part.
Curious students could try various fingering combinations to find out that keeping Finger 2 gives an awkward thumb on the F sharp. In many respects this performance is good, being confident in fluency with a sense of character, so it is a pity that the LH needs to be quieter in relation to the RH. Using a rotary action a rocking movement of the hand as the forearm rotates will help to achieve even control. Discourage young students from extremes of dynamics in this piece, but encourage a pleasing tone.
This is not a piece that will present many difficulties but those that do arise will probably be related to interpretation – giving a clear sense of the elegant character, with well shaped phrasing and dynamic variety.
Practice Tips Practice should be undertaken in sections, in accordance with what has been taught in the lesson. Diabelli’s sonatinas are ideal material for children – very approachable technically, without wide stretches and featuring attractive melodies.
The way to avoid this is to begin to be expressive early in the learning process so that it is integral ddiabelli the music – once the sonatna has been memorised the student will no longer be looking at xiabelli score for information about dynamics. This is a side to side, rocking motion created by rotating the forearm.
Teaching Strategies If this piece is to be played from memory the teacher will need to give clear guidance about understanding the structure of the music. A sound performance will show continuity at, perhaps, op.1688 a cautious pace. Always insist on consistently correct fingering right from the start of the learning process.
7 Piano Sonatinas, Op.168 (Diabelli, Anton)
Since Diabelli was a teacher, it is highly likely that Op was written for use as a teaching piece. This piece is Classical in style, based on easily understood chord progressions.
However keeping the fingers on the keys and pushing with each finger will create excess tension and give rhythmic unevenness.
The sonatina’s essential charm lies in its simplicity of melodic line and this must not be blurred by inept pedalling, particularly if the child is not yet tall enough to reach the pedal comfortably. This fingering does work well and you can explain it in terms of giving neat control of the first two notes followed by a strong finger for the important B that begins Bar 2.
The tempo might, on the other hand, be quick but rhythmic control might be lacking.
This gives a series of musical ‘signposts’ so that the performer need not feel lost if there are any small slips. Using some rotary motion in the LH will help to achieve even control.
