At the beginning of the piece, Professor Thunemann advises to mark clearly the difference among sforzato-piano y forte-piano and it is necessary not to rush the scales.

The clarinet must play lighter and the oboe and the rest of the octet have to play every sound more articulated.

In different moments of the piece, the octet tends to rush the tempo, and Thunemann insists on the importance of keeping the same pulse. There are some important notes to remark the harmonic changes: for example the D note in bassoon part (bar 95). The Professor also explains how to breathe after the fermata, playing a short and clear attack.

As a group, the students have to find the balance in every sound and every instrumental part and play the tutti quicker, going ahead. Sometimes, the oboe has to lead as a conductor to play the cues all together, they have to get breathing together.

At the end of the masterclass, they work on the short notes in the horn part and on the final passage, which is "quasi senza ritenuto".
