About This Lesson
Ali Arango finishes his series on the famous Sonata by Leo Brouwer with the third movement, “La Toccata de Pasquini.” The lesson begins with a brief background on the piece’s namesake, Bernardo Pasquini.
Arango then jumps straight into the opening, breaking down it’s complex rhythmic character and alleviating technical difficulties by providing tips for right hand fingerings and rapid shifting.
Other topics discussed include the “cuckoo” quote found throughout the movement and Arango’s concept of “space” dynamics which he employs during the long, arpeggiated sections.
