The student has delivered a good sound, but this movement is like the opera and it should be more declaimed, with a more operatic and exaggerated character. Professor Miriam Fried gives some instructions about articulation and phrasing, and she gives the student some advice on feeling the evolution of the form in the pulse and making contrasts and different colors. Then she focuses on bow positioning and postural corrections. It is necessary to be "connected" and to feel the legato in the fingers. Moreover, Fried highlights the importance of the proportion in the musical decisions (i.e. the vibrato should not be excessive), and she makes other considerations about harmony and resonance. To conclude, Miriam Fried insists on the way to play this Adagio - with generosity and theatricality.
