Professor Rainer Schmidt insists on the phrasing, vibrato and dynamics of the second part of the Minuetto. Moreover, the sound has to be more focused and more concentrated, and to create more tension in some moments. Regarding the tempo, it should not be so fast, and he compares it with Corelli's concerto concerto.

Professor Schmidt also explains the transition from the first movement to the second and works on colour changes and different possibilities.
Other comments about legato and articulation, tuning, tempo in some passages and violin fingering. The group has to breathe together and look for character contrasts to move away the monotony.
