The masterclass

About this masterclass

Marc Coppey and Matteo Fabi examine the dramatic feel of this piece and the significance of delivering more color and contrast. Coppey emphasizes the importance of avoiding repetition. He states, "The composer doesn't repeat himself. That's one of the things of great composers. The harmonic structure is the same, but it doesn't repeat. So we should not repeat either." 

Additionally, the two work on matching melodies to the rhythmic pulse, when to crescendo and diminuendo, appoggiaturas, and bowing posture.

Concerto No. 2 in D major, Op. 101 by Joseph Hadyn

Joseph Haydn’s concerto was composed for cello and orchestra in 1783 and was mistakenly thought to have been an homage piece to famous cellist Antonin Kraft. It premiered in London in 1784. The authorship of the piece was also in question for a while, as some people thought Kraft wrote it himself. In 1951, Haydn’s signature was uncovered on the score, putting an end to the rumours. 

The piece is classically structured in three movements with the first being light and soothing, the second being a major shift and the finale being both somber at first and more cheerful at the end.

Haydn

Joseph  Haydn

Born in Austria in 1732, Joseph Haydn is widely regarded, along with Mozart and Beethoven, as a bonafide representative of Viennese classicism. He was raised in a musical family with a family of music lovers. At eight-years-old, he was recruited to serve as a choirboy at the Stephansdom in Vienna, Austria. Here, the young musician rehearsed and sang in performances of the most prominent classical music of the time. The experience would fundamentally shape his musical intellect and future.

Joseph Haydn eventually landed a job as a Kapellmeister (Music Director) where he composed his first symphonies and divertimentos. In 1761, his career would continue to flourish after gaining new employment with Prince Paul Anton of Esterházy, and later his brother Prince Nikolaus of Esterházy. Fortunately for the composer, he had the privilege to work with one of the best European orchestras of the time, for which he wrote most of his works. By the 1780s, Haydn’s works were gaining even more popularity and recognition. At times, he was occasionally compared to Mozart.
Prince Nikolaus died in 1790, and his successor, Anton, decided to dissolve the court orchestra led by Haydn. After this, he took up residence in Vienna, and then took the opportunity to make several trips to London, where his music was celebrated by the public.

The composer spent the last years of his life back in Vienna, where he continued to enjoy international recognition until the day of his passing at the age of 77, on May 31, 1809.  In spite of his death, Joseph Haydn continued to be regarded as one of the most prolific and important composers of the Classical era. A common characteristic of his music is the evolution of larger structures out of simple and short musical motifs. His works are key to the development of the sonata form, as well as towards the establishment of symphonies. Overall, Joseph Haydn produced an astonishing volume of music including 108 symphonies, 68 string quartets, 32 divertimenti, 126 trios for Barton, viola, and cello; 29 trios for piano, violin, and cello; 21 trios for two violins and cello; 47 piano sonatas; 14 masses, 20 operas; 2 cello concerti; and 6 oratorios.
