Rehearsal Notes 11/7/2016


Mvt. IV

Not too heavy.

No prep beat will be given, but the first entire bar will be conducted

Watch for meno mosso at Rehearsal K

4th beat of L, more oboe and clarinet needed

11 after K, strings add an accent on beat 3

14 after K, pizz can be rounder

Really emphasize the first note of triplets at the beginning of the movement (and de-emphasize the beat that follows)

Winds change FFF to F, 10 bars from the end; more “chorale-like”

Strings, more confident entrances at O

Be forte 9 after O (horn and bassoon)

Change accent to tenuto 6 and 7 bars from the end.

Mvt. III

Violins, pizzicato at downbeat of G

Watch the key changes!

30 after H, feel in 1

Pulse stays the same 10 after Rehearsal I (but half note becomes quarter)

Need to hear the tune at Rehearsal I

Crescendo through beat 3 of penultimate bar

Mvt I

Clean lift in bar 2

Crescendo on beat 4 of bar 9

More inner string voices needed 4 bars after A; more winds here, too

1 before C will be conducted in 4
