Why Analysis? How Detailed Knowledge of the Score Can Transform Performance

Dr. Donald Watts

This session discloses certain conflicts between Beethoven's written indications in his Sonatas for Piano and Cello and the practices of many contemporary players. Detailed analysis of the score can be most effective in providing new perspective.
