But it sounds as though you've already considered this and you have strong ideas about the piece, so I probably shouldn't say any more
Let´s say, that´s my interpretation this time and, of course, like always I have made some thoughts about it. But people who know me, know, that I´m able to do a complete other interpretation next time. The problem is, we can´t say "it has to be like this or that", all suggestions - like yours, that every second respective fourth note of the two- and four-eights figures from bar 9 on shouldn´t be too short/staccato - is a matter of taste and interpretation. May be next time I will play these figures with less articulation and more pedal (such things also depend a bit on my daily mood sometimes). I generally think, it is an important sign and duty in our new epoque/century to be very very open for all new possiblities...
Which clarinet and piano sonata do you plan to do next? We don't yet have the Hindemith on this site, do we?
Yes, we have thought about that Hindemith-sonata, and I think, one nice day we will play it, but first we have planed to play Lutoslawski "5 Dance Preludes" (I have ordered the score today
) from 1954 (I believe) and one more jazz-piece, but after that we also want to do one of the Brahms-sonatas. (I already have played the first movement of both.)
Thank you for your interest and your thoughts. Feel free to give more inspirations for my next interpretation of the Poulenc-sonata, if you like! For me it is one of the sense of this forum to give and to receive inspirations.
