"At the beginning and at the end, the story is a bit serious" François Le Roux
After listening to, and congratulating the student, the master points out that the most difficult part about this piece is every stanza, the beginning of the melody. Starting from this point, the master suggests various corrections to improve the interpretation of the melody. In addition to this, the master highlights some things that concern the poem, like sexual allusions.
The work they do is arduous and they constantly focus on the detail of the pronunciation and the breaths, so that the audience can understand the text well. In addition to this, the master highlights some issues that concern tuning. He then strives to provide a complete class that works on strictly musical aspects, and also on the text, poetry, and possible meanings of what happens in it.
