Hi Everyone,

I've been watching Beth's videos on expressive phrasing to at least aim to make my playing some day sound like a good orator or listening to good reader's theatre performance.  Anyway, while listening to especially #4,5,6, and 7 as Beth had suggested I came upon a piece written by George Haendal in 1711- "Lascia chi'io pianga-from Rinaldo.

This song seems to me to scream for tapers and small cresendos and decrocendos.  Have a listen on youtube and see what you think.

Cheers,

Ray

Maybe that has something to do with it being written for a flute ?

Hi Eileen,

What's interesting is the different keysThe sheet music I've got is in F Major while in your example the song is in E flat Major.  Cool

Cheers,

Ray

OPPS, sorry Beth,  forgot to include the video.  There are many with vocallists, this is one of few with only violin.

That's a perfect example. The melodic line almost tells you what the story is just by it's contour. You can hear the built in tapers. Did you find a violin version of this, btw?
