The atmosphere of this slow movement of Vivaldi’s Autumn is so beautiful and peaceful. When I was looking for a technique that wouldn’t harm this atmosphere, there was only one option: wind tones. The chords of the harpsichord are played pizzicato by the first flute. This piece is a good breath control exercise.

De sfeer van dit langzame deel van Vivaldi’s Autumn is zo mooi en vredig. Toen ik op zoek was naar een techniek die deze sfeer niet zou schaden, was er maar één optie: windtonen. De akkoorden van het klavecimbel worden pizzicato gespeeld door de eerste fluit. Dit stuk is perfect om een goede controle over de ademhaling te trainen.
