About this masterclass

In this lesson for violin, Tedi Papavrami and Anouch Papoyan work on Bach's Partita No. 1, the Allemande and the Double. Papavrami discusses the importance of communicating an idea through one's playing. Additionally, they work on technical aspects that are required to master these two movements, such as playing a 4-string chord correctly, separating the phrases, understanding where tension and distension take place, properly executing a vibrato, and tips for more effective practicing. 

What we learn in this masterclass 

  1. Correct phrasing. 

  2. Communicating an idea. 

  3. Bowing techniques. 

  4. Maintaining a good posture. 

  5. The vibratos. 

Violin Partita No. 1 in B Minor by Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach's Partita No. 1 in B minor was written for solo violin in 1720. A traditional partita, it has an Allemande, Courante, Sarabande, and a Bourrée (Tempo di Borea). Each movement is followed by a "double" variation, which suggests that each movement elaborates on the chords of the prior movement.

Tedi Papavrami

Tedi Papavrami

In 1985 he won the "Rodolfo Lipitzer" competition in Gorizia.

Born in Albania Tedi Papavrami was introduced to the violin at age five by his father, a brilliant teacher with many years of pedagogical experience. Tedi progressed rapidly, and within three years he was performing at Sarasate’s Airs Bohémiens with the Tirana Philharmonic Orchestra. At the age of eleven-years-old, he tackled Paganini’s Concerto No. 1 with the Emile Sauret’s fearsome and challenging cadenza.

In 1982, French flautist Alain Marion, who had come to give a concert in Tirana, heard the child prodigy play – and promptly arranged for him to come to Paris with a bursary from the French government. Tedi went on to study with Pierre Amoyal at the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique. Moreover, he appeared on popular television programs and gave many concerts at that time. Eventually reaching the end of his studies, Tedi went on perfecting his instrumental and musical independently. He and his family eventually fled Communist-led Albania permanently and moved near Bordeaux.

Tedi Papavrami has won numerous international prizes in the 1990s and embarked on a brilliant solo and chamber music career. He has also collaborated as concerto soloist with conductors of the likes of Kurt Sanderling, Armin Jordan, Emmanuel Krivine, and more. He has performed in recitals and on disc with chamber music partners such as Philippe Bianconi, Nelson Goerner, Martha Argerich, among others. He has been recording since 1990. In 2014, he released a CD featuring 6 solo violin sonatas by Eugène Ysaÿe and the same composer’s sonata for two violins alongside his colleague Svetlin Roussev, was simultaneously awarded two of the most outstanding French distinctions: the Diapason d’Or and the Choc de l’Année (Classica magazine).

Tedi Papavrami now lives in Geneva, Switzerland, where he is violin professor at the Haute École de Musique.

Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach

Johann Sebastian Bach is undoubtedly one of the most important figures in music history. His incredible creative power, technical mastery, and intellect have made a lasting impression not only on classical music but also on many different modern music genres we know today.

Born in 1685 in Eisenach, Germany, Bach was a member of a very well-known family of musicians. At 18-years-old, he began working in Arnstadt where he accompanied hymns at church. His professional career as a musician would follow in Weimar, where he resided from 1708 to 1717. Here, Bach would deepen his theoretical study of composition and write most of his organ works. Moreover, he composed preludes and fugues that would be part of his collection The Well-Tempered Clavier. After building a considerable reputation in Weimar, Bach moved to Köthen to take a new role as Chapel Master. Writing less religious songs and putting more of a focus on chamber music, his compositions from this time would bring Baroque instrumental music to its pinnacle.

From 1723 until his death in 1750, Bach worked in Leipzig. First, as Thomaskantor at the Thomasschule and later as a private tutor and director of the Collegium Musicum. During this time, Bach worked on creating a repertoire of cantatas for church and revised many of his previous compositions. From 1726 onward, his keyboard works were published. His death in 1750 came to mark the end of the Baroque period and the beginning of Classicism. For many years after his passing, Johann Sebastian Bach’s works were buried with him until they resurfaced many years later and celebrated for their musical ingenuity.
