November 20 Rehearsal
Excellent work - went through more than half the program this time,
Handel - diction, articulation, rhythm!
Berlioz - phrasing, entrances, expression in piano
Honegger - soprano and alto clarity, different characters from section to section
Purcell - lightness and air, all separate, short notes shorter, long ones longer
Vivaldi - brilliance and rhythm, rhythm, rhythm
Mozart - prepare entrances and take over, lead on
Tchaikovsky - page 4: slava, slava, ... fsemoo tsarskamoo domoo yevo slava... i fsemoo yevo narodoo slava - memorize!
