February 12, 8: April 28, 3: May 5, Guest recitalist, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Des Moines, Iowa. See the first post in the series for background information. The things we remember. This piece is rather heroic for Franck. Even the Final is not this warlike. So stay heroic, never flabby — not even the soft, pretty part in the middle should be allowed to get too sentimental. The title itself has three different accents on vowels.

This is a march, not a cavalry charge. I begin a bit under tempo and torque things up going into measure 2. I also begin with the box open, then closing it during the first measure. That lets the opening make a nice statement and then get out of the way for the melody.

I agree; such is the backbone of the heroic element of the piece. Measure 2, melody, last note C: Any time a short, weak note is followed by a strong rest, you might explore that option, such as in measures 8, 22, 71, etc. Same goes for the E-sharps in measure This is one of the many lengths to which I go to preserve legato whenever possible, in this case the upper voice of the right hand.


See my post on the Cantabile for a discussion of fingerings for the Great on the middle manual vs. Great on the bottom. I make them full eighths, while still keeping the accompaniment half-value. Give it a little TLC to finish the phrase.

Same for measure 17 and plenty franco spots like that. I hit a piston here to kill the Pedal and couple the accompaniment to it.

I then use the Pedal to help out in measure 21 by taking the entire lower voice, just for that measure. After that, there is plenty of time to hit the original piston to return the Pedal into service. Instinct tells me to play 34 and 35 detached, including the Pedal. Then instinct ppiece me to go legato for 36 and Detached atand legato again from 40 on. Just memorize that section! FranfkI pounce immediately back on the heroic tempo.

I keep the right-hand melody legato and the left-hand accompaniment detached. In measures andI hold the tied melody note full value, while still keeping plece accompaniment half-value. That sort of thing is a bit of trouble to keep up with, but it adds elegance to the sound by keeping each voice or ensemble consistent. Forsee my discussion above on measure 2.


This section is clearly an older sibling to the final buildup in the B minor Choral. Measure will need some preparation by slowing down into it. I begin a ritard in and make sure frqnck my ritard does not get any slower than I intend to go in That way, simply proceeds out ofrather than starting a new idea.

Practice the cross-rhythms in, and to perfection. Don’t sit on the last eighth of — you’ll give away the surprise!

Make an unexpected pregnant pause. For example, I play pretty much detached, but I go legato I take the Pedal and the upper frnck of the hands legato.

I detach heroically the repeated notes in the hands. Notice the Pedal does not break going into That can work to your advantage for giving the Pedal some direction into the next phrase. Make it build somewhere.

More decisions between detached vs. I play the pedal legato. I also play the hands legato ; it gives a sense of crescendo to the hemiola. View Printer Friendly Version.
