Sor Opus 35 number two the,
part of the progressive studies
Opus 35 by Fernando Sor.
This one is in a different meter from the
last one, it's in three-eighth.
It's also in C major, but
it just has a slightly different
combination of right hand fingerings and
I like it because it gets you playing
melody with not just I and M, but also A,
and there's a lot of A-M-I combinations in
this three three-beat piece and
there's also some 16th notes in in there
too, where we have.
And something stylistically
you want to be aware of.
You'll hear me playing after the two-16th
notes for
example in measures one, two, three, four,
in measure five.
You would hear that I'd play the next
note, after the two-16th's shorter and
especially in let's see here.
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven,
eight, nine, ten, 11, 12, 13,
14, 15, in measure 15, that's our
especially good spot for
the second beat to be played short.
That second note, that open E,
Once again
that's just something stylistically the,
that you can, you can start trying out
Articulation, of course, is a big part of
music of the early 19th century.
The combination of long and shortened,
short notes contribute to
the musics inflection and we'll be
covering a lot of 19th century pieces and,
and their, mu, melodic inflection
throughout this curriculum,
so here we go this is number two.
