Schumann Masterclass: Fantasiestücke Op. 73, Third Piece – Musings with Inbal Segev

Hello Cellists,

Schumann originally wrote his Fantasiestücke, Op. 73 for the clarinet, so in this final fantasy (“Quick and with fire”), try to think a little more like a clarinetist. Keep the articulation legato in the opening, even though the notes are fast. Follow along as I guide you through the movement, pointing out my favorite nuances and creating long phrases. I’ll even give you my special trick for hitting high notes in tune, too!
