Prof. Bennett begins the lecture making some corrections on phrasing and appoggiaturas with trills for this orchestral excerpt: it should imitate loads of little birds fluttering. To obtain this character, William Bennett corrects also the articulation and he suggests that the sound at the end of a certain phrase should not stop so sharply but should end with more reverberation. Finally, he mentions other improvable aspects related to the repeating notes and the phrasing.
