The second half of the Sarabande has been the focus of the last couple of days’ practice. This hasn’t been a good week for the world or our country,and it was hard to get back to playing on Saturday. However, as I am working on a sorrowful sounding piece, it was less jarring than playing some bright cheery thing.
Right now, I’m still learning the chords for the second half. I can play some, and the first ones are getting more comfortable. Understandably, there’s no sense of line at all until I figure out how my left hand is supposed to work. Lots of fluidity left to work out, and I am going to miss my cello so much during the week I’m in NC.
