Piano Lesson: More intensive work on J.S. Bach Fugue in C minor, BWV 847 (phrase shaping, voice balancing and form/theory analysis)

Claudia, 11, and I refined our work on measures 9 through 21, with special attention to Episodes.

She practiced shaping voices, balancing them, and creating a gradual crescendo where needed. (form and theoretical analysis were woven into our Fugue exploration)

We concluded by playing the Fugue from the opening to measure 18.
