Interpretation - How to shape a melodic line

Musical interpretation is first and foremost a question of shaping a melody or the melodic line of a setting. Music, like any language, follows its own set of rules and a sufficient knowledge and familiarity with musical &lsquo:grammar&rsquo: is therefore an essential prerequisite of any convincing interpretation.
The internationally renowned performer and teacher Peter-Lukas Graf explains in great detail the parameters that have to be taken into account for a successful interpretation: rhythm, metre, agogics, articulation, phrasing, ornamentation and implied polyphony, etc. Numerous examples from the flute repertoire of the 17th&ndash:20th century serve as models from which he derives the &lsquo:rules&rsquo: appropriate for an interpretation in keeping with each period. &ndash: These rules are not intended to be dogmatic but instead should stimulate the players to form their own opinion.
