Marco Tamayo finishes his series on Manuel María Ponce's Sonatina Meridional with a look at the third movement, "Fiesta." Tamayo begins by demonstrating the transition into the third movement and how the second movement's final fermata "crescendos" into the downbeat.
He continues the lesson by walking through the piece and discussing musical aspects such as color, direction, and flexibility. Some of the technical ideas addressed include the types of rasgueados one should use and how to cut ringing notes with the right hand.
