L.v.Beethoven :: Sonata Opus 10/2 in F-Major

Wim Winters plays Beethoven's keyboard Sonata Opus 10/2 in F Major on his clavichord built by Joris Potvlieghe in 2009. There is a lot to be said about the choices a musician can make for the performance of an 18th century piece of keyboard music. I am preparing a vlog about my view on historical instruments and their use, especially the clavichord, certainly not to state that the clavichord was or is THE instrument to perform this kind of music, we may be should open our view to the fact that it is A possibility that historically spoken, is undoubtedly correct (and works just perfect). The clavichord (Clavier) was known to almost all keyboard players, and used intensively and available in all kinds of forms, from very inexpensive to very expensive instruments. The one I use in this recording would have been a luxurious instrument, as Beethoven knew already at his time in Bonn with Neefe.

When my Fritz pianoforte will be ready however (early 2017), I definitely will make new recordings of this and other pieces I already played on the clavichord, whereas other aspects can be emphasized more and others less.

Vlog n°6, in which I share with you some basic points of departure of Beethoven's Sonata opus 10/2, first movement. General aspects relationship between meter, note value, harmonic changes and tempo choice. Character and balance throughout the complete piece as a point of departure. We'll not go to deep in to matters as timing, accentuation, but try to set up a framework that is -as much as possible with musical notation and interpretation- objective (in a subjective way 🙂 ).
