I’m working through Kummer #65 now. It’s basically a bunch of triples with crescendos. I worked Emily’s method of playing the end first, and that does make it easier for me to play with feeling. I decided to step back and note the half and whole steps so I can get a feel for what is going on, then I’m jumping back in. I spent about 45 minutes with this – just the last two measures. First, getting a rhythm feeling, then doing the penultimate measures.
I’m going to do a little on the Cinquantaine now.
One aspect of progress that I use is how much I measure myself by is how much music I can take on in a space between lessons. I’d really like to have the whole piece of Kummer 65 worked through by my next lesson.
