These pieces are kicking my ass, and I can’t seem to play them at tempo unless I totally ditch intonation. They’re just runs. Maybe I should just quit, after all. It’s just pointless over the hill stuff and I should stop pretending.
Tomorrow’s practice :
- m.52-92 review
- m. 122-140 new
- Rehearsal J-K
One thing I have to say is that this is really forcing me to focus my time. There are 200 measures in this piece and if I take chunks of 20 per day, I should be wrapped up in 10 days, leaving the rest to polish.
RHYTHM and TEMPO must come before pitch. Then pitch,then put it all together.
