"Writing simply or simple is the most difficult, but it's also through through the simplicity that you can get to the most, the deepest." Michel Dalberto
"At the beginning of the class, the master begins by talking about the importance of this Ludwig van Beethoven concert, highlighting that it is a piece that he composed while he was beginning to go deaf. Beyond this, he says it is not a sad or tragic piece.
After listening to the student play the beginning, Michel Dalberto talks about the difficulty of this part, since it is a very special theme, one where the interpreter must be very clear about what he wants, and how he intends to do it: ""It's up to you to inspire yourself with this first chord"".
"The master talks about certain details, such as the grace notes that “should be always from the upper note, rather than just on the bunny and hyphens."" At times, Michel Dalberto tells the student that “it's a string quartet,"" so he must work on the sound thinking about those instruments.
Another indication that Michel Dalberto repeats a few times in this class is linked to the influence of Italian music in this Concerto, in relation to the need to “sing” with the piano.
-The beginning of this Concerto is really hard
-Sometimes, it's a string quartet writing
-There is a influence of the Italian music.
