To begin with, Professor Silverstein checks the starting sforzandi regarding its character and dynamics. Joseph Silverstein advises the student not to move the bow so quickly for saving it until the end of certain phrase.

Besides, Prof. Silverstein makes suggestions about the appropriate bow-stroke to imitate the piano articulation, and about the best fingering to get the required color.

Finally, the professor reflects on the coda and how it should be performed according to the composition style for this specific musical period: the student should transmit the contrast and expectation which the composer wanted to obtain.
