Chanson triste is the perfect piece to explore phrasing as an ensemble. The melancholy sensibility allows students to really feel how the tempo and dynamics should be paced based on how they emotionally feel collectively. It is also a chance to deal with more complex harmonies than they might have encountered before. The harmonies, while still consonant, can get dense. It is an opportunity for the musicians to achieve sonic balance within a chord that might have as much as 5 or 6 notes sounding at the same time. This piece will aptly showcase your student's emotional sensitivity and musical maturity. It is a work well suited for use at contest of for festival use.
