C.Ph.E Bach Masterclass: ‘Play from the soul, not like a trained bird’

Intense C.Ph.E. Bach Masterclass for the students of Manja Smits at the conservatory ArtEZ in Zwolle, the Netherlands.

I am very happy with the results of the students, who are eager to learn and reacting fast! Much thanks to my colleague, Manja, who stimulates the students to learn the historical practice, but most important in learning to play expressively.

C.Ph. E. Bach quotes; ‘We should make our the ear conscious of the true content and affect of a composition’. ‘ Play from the soul, not like a trained bird!’
