In today’s part 2 video of a brief history of opera, we’re going to talk about Romantic and Modern opera styles, and the influential composers and works in this period.
Today’s brief history of the opera video is the first in a two-part series. In this video, we’re going to focus on the early days of opera, from Baroque to Classical. Romantic and Modern opera will be the subject of the next video.
Today’s video covers the RCM’s grade 3 piano technique requirements (updated for the 2015 syllabus). This includes scales and triads, solid and broken. I’ll be playing with the metronome in this video at the MINIMUM required speeds (feel free to go a little faster), and will label each technique on the screen as I play them.
