"always try to find different colors, don't play all the same way." Michel Dalberto
"The 17-year-old student plays this Sonata, which Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart composed in 1789, two years before his death. Michel Dalberto says that he is very interested in how the student plays, saying “your articulation, the position of your hand, and the way you move your fingers is just the opposite from my technique."" Beyond some issues related to the positioning of the arm, the master warns the student that, at least in this concert, she has played everything with the same sound and the same color, the entire time. “Depending on the music you play, of course, but if you could keep this kind of technique in some passages, and have a technique with more weight coming from the shoulder that you can feel and go deeper, being closer to the keyboard, I think that would be fantastic because you would have a sort of double technique.""
Moving forward, the class is based mainly on this search for different colors, and styles for the different parts of this concert. They work on the weight of the arm, the use of the pedal, the tempo changes, the legato, etc.
-It is necessary to have the possibility of playing with different colors and sounds
-Importance of the contrast
-Adagio doesn't mean slow
-Importance of feeling the tempo, and of changing it
