Week 3: Musical collaboration and the role of the score
Last week, you worked on piano scores that comprise two simultaneous lines of music. You are going to move on to music that uses more than two lines. As you are now familiar with what piano music looks like, you will move on to music for piano with other instruments.
To start off this week, watch a performance of part of the fourth movement of Schubert’s Piano Quintet in A major, D. 667, known as the Trout Quintet. You will be studying this piece in some detail this week, so you might find it useful to download the PDF of the score now.
The performance was filmed at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and features Siobhan Doyle (violin), Kimi Makino (viola), Christopher Mansfield (cello), Filipe Dandalo (double bass) and Jeremy Young (piano).
