On Thursday, March 7, we will have a guest workshop with Dr. Mitch Ohriner on the topic of prformance analysis and microtiming. In preparation for the workshop, listen to the two performances of Chopin’s Prelude in E minor, Op. 24/4 posted on classes*v2 (in Resources>Performance Analysis Workshop; a score is also available in the same folder).
Think about the two following questions:
- Where are the major divisions in this piece, and what makes them seem like divisions?
- Compare the performances of Martha Argerich and Edward Auer. What are the similarities and differences? Which of those pertain to rhythm or timing?
Post a short response to these questions by Thursday, March 7 @ 10 AM.
