Robert Pracht Etude 46: dynamics
I loved to play this violin etude by Robert Pracht from the very first time I’ve tried it. I think it’s because of the minor key it’s in: G minor. I always love pieces in minor key. And I think this etude just sounds gorgeous. I think intonation was pretty good for this etude but I’m really struggling with the dynamics. I tried to add dynamics to the etude but I can’t hear them in the recording. I did two crescendos and the last part of the etude should actually sound as double forte!! Which is not the case at all… So, if anybody has some suggestions for me of how I can improve on playing crescendo and forte, please comment. I would be glad to hear about it.
Now I’ll share my recording with you. Hope you like it.
And oh, there is one funny detail. In the end there is a personal note and if you listen carefully you can hear the rain. It was raining all day long, a pretty dark day… But it didn’t matter to me. I especially dressed up with a colorful dress to not let the rain ruin my day. Playing the violin makes the sun shine inside even if it rains outside.
