The Slow Movements of W. A. Mozart’s Piano Sonatas: an Experience of Executant Analysis
The article is devoted to the study of classical sonatas in the training General piano course. Special attention is given to the slow movements of Mozart’s piano sonatas as a promising component of educational music repertoire. The mentioned slow movements are represented as fragments or episodes of a relative theatrical and instrumental action, «encrypted» in the note text. Its possible executant interpretation in this aspect is considered on examples of Andante from Sonata No. 1 (KV 279) and Andante from Sonata No. 2 (KV 280). In the author’s opinion, this analytical approach is favourable to activization of musician’s inner ear and imagination in the process of rehearsal work at W. A. Mozart’s sonatas.
