About This Lesson

Ali Arango performs and demonstrates sections from the first movement of Leo Brouwer’s famous Sonata, dedicated to Julian Bream.

The masterclass begins with Arango describing his initial encounter with the piece which occurred when Brouwer gave him a personal copy of the score. Arango goes on to highlight musical, compositional, and technical aspects of the piece including the piece’s persistent Fandango rhythm, musical quotes chosen by Brouwer, and general techniques for maintaining a stable right hand.
