I haven’t mastered the split screen on iMovie 11, but I decided to aim my camcorder at Mac and Steinway to get the same effect. Basically I recorded Primo first and on playback added Secondo to Mozart’s final 4-hand movement, Sonata 1, K.318-Allegro Molto.
Needless to say, it’s valuable to learn both parts when contemplating a collaboration with a student or teaching colleague. In my case, I have two reliable partners who plan to play the composition with me, so we’re all in our practicing phase.
Unfortunately, while I had to turn my back on Mac due to a sparsity of space, a Live partner will sit beside me affording a true give and take that heightens the musical experience.
In any framing, however, Wolfgang’s music soars!
