Don Giovanni Again

Discussion in 'Orchestral Technique [DB]' started by SplitNick, May 18, 2011.

  1. In Don Giovanni anyone have any specific ideas about rehearsal 48 of the finale, act I.
  2. Let me expand.

    The eighth note triplets are scale fragments. So after an E quarter note to begin the phrase we have constant triplets...CDE, GAB, GAB/ CDE CDE GAB GAB/ CDE CDE ABC# ABC#/ DEF DEF BC#D# BC#D#/ EF#G EF#G CDE CDE/ FAC FAC DEF DEF

    The only notes on the E string are the G major fragment. Everything else is on A and D.
    Unless you are using string crossing for F major fragment.

    Also the triplets are marked staccato. The tempo is approximately quarter equals 220 bpm, that estimate is from recordings by the Berlin Philharmoniker and the Frieberger Barocorchester.

    Questions. Do you use one string per fragment, or would you cross strings in fragments such as the C major, G major, etc?

    Do you use alternate bowing, or would try to ricochet on a single bow through each triplet?
