Franck - Navigating the Sonata in A Major for Violin and Piano, mvts. 1 and 2

MARY MORAN presents the first and second movements of the Franck violin sonata, discussing the piece and showing simple solutions to problematic passages using the Taubman Approach.​  Topics covered in this free video: redistribution, texture, leaps, and interdependence of hands.


To view part two of this video, register to attend our Summer Symposium and International Piano Festival at Princeton University. Mary Moran will be speaking on the technical and interpretive issues of movements three and four of Franck's Sonata in A Major for Violin and Piano.
