Study in D Major, Op. 84, No. 29 (Chasse du jeune Henri)
Young Henry's Hunt - Melodious and Very Easy Etude - Étude mélodique et très facileCharles Dancla's Study in D Major, Op. 84, No. 29 is based on La Chasse du jeune Henry [Young Henry's Hunt], the overture to the opera Le Jeune Henri composed in 1797 by the French composer Etienne Nicolas Méhul.
It is to be played in the first and third positions and is written for the most part in double stops.
It has the following musical form :
- Mm. 1-12 : Main theme A in D Major, entirely in double stops
- Mm. 13-19 : Contasting section B, a simple bucolic melody with slurred eighth notes (no double stops)
- Mm. 20-end : Coda in D Major, featuring D Major arpeggios, double stops and 3-note chords in down-bow.
When bowing on two strings at once, be careful not to put too much pressure on the bow, so that it does not scratch.
The three-note down-bow chords are to be played at the frog, sounding first the two lower notes, then the two upper notes, with a broad and free gesture of the right arm.
The exercise preceding the study is to be played with great energy, stopping after the quarter note and giving the eighth note a brisk impulse.
Duration : 01:23
