Study in C Major, Op. 84, No. 30 (Le Rossignol)
The Nightingale - Melodious and Very Easy Etude - Étude mélodique et très facileThis Study Opus 84, No. 30 by Charles Dancla is entitled Le Rossignol - Petite étude pastorale [The Nightingale - Little Pastoral Study].
It has a very interesting bucolic character, imitating the song of many birds, such as the nightingale, the cuckoo and the quail.
Technical features include short appoggiaturas which are to be played quickly and ON the beat, and which Dancla recommends to play softly, without harshness.
Another technical aspect of this study is simple finger action, alternating between two notes only.
Players will also be confronted with left-hand pizzicato in measures 23 and 26.
This study is very interesting, as it encourages the player to explore the different timbres of sound on his instrument.
The left-hand pizzicati are to be played with the little finger of the left hand.
Please take note that this score contains the editor's suggestion for the correct realization of the ornaments (in this case, short appoggiaturas).
Duration : 02:12
