The professor advises the student to establish a quicker tempo from the beginning.

She insists on the importance of color changes: it is not just a question of dynamics; they are necessary both to point out the tonal modulations and for the phrasing when the violin has a long note and the piano has a change in harmony. The student has to plan this color changes to save enough bow and to put more interest in emphasizing the dissonances.

About the tempo, when the student is late during the movement, it is like a machine running out of fuel and it is not comfortable for the pianist.

About phrasing, it is very advisable not to play in such a horizontal way. The phrase has to get somewhere and it must have direction. Without that vertical point, this horizontal approach has no meaning. For example, in a specific phrase, the climax is on the high G, so the student has to think how to get there.
