Archives for category: 10/8

Lots of playing this time:

Memory attempts at 25/7,8,9 and N1,2,3, with the spots in Op. 10 I’m practicing every day.

All of Op. 10, from memory, in one big chunk, for the first time here. As you’ll hear, it’s still completely a work in progress (especially that my concentration really gave out in the middle), but I wanted you to hear the pieces coming together as a coherent whole.

The podcast will be on hiatus in August but will return in September. Best wishes for an enjoyable, productive rest of the summer, and thanks for being my practice buddy!

85: Tired

Here’s what 10/8,9,3,4,5 and 12 sound like when I’m tired.

Some of Op. 10 heads towards concert-ready, or at least concert; some spots to fix  in 10/4, 10/5, 10/8, 10/9, and 10/10, with a little bit of theory geekery in the latter.

Sticky Notes

PIAS 82

A glimpse into my hoped-for warm-up of the future, when I’ll be able to play all of Op. 10 and then play anything else in the world. Including 10/8, about half of 10/1, and with-screaming versions of 10/2, 10/10 and 10/7.

In Boston this Saturday? Why not come to my concert?

Some breakthroughs and strategies in 10/8 and 10/10, and a plan for 25/10. By the way, on listening to the recording, I didn’t hate everything I did in 10/8 as predicted, but I definitely need to make the dynamics much clearer.

Here’s the Solomon recording I was talking about.

PIAS 81

 

The first full episode of 2013! Realizations about 10/10 and (my playing of) 10/8. A New Year’s resolution, an explanation of those improvs, and the ten minutes of my practice that aren’t actually “practicing”.

PIAS 80

PIAS 77

Demisemipenultimate? Only three more podcasts after this one (maybe).  Thoughts on practicing between practice; on playing concerto reductions;  a mini rant about Hindemith; a taxonomy of the Chopin etudes; and play-throughs of 10/3, 10/5, 10/8, and 25/2.

 

A mathy way of practicing 10/11; an interpretive conundrum in 10/3; a realization about my playing of 10/12;  tricky parts of 10/8; thinking about 25/2, 10/5, and 10/4; beginning to learn the game of 25/8.

PIAS 76

A report on how practicing Chopin helped me play Brahms last week; some quotes from Chopin (and one from Chuck Close); thinking through my next performance (with a request for your ideas); snippets of all 24 etudes (I’m ignoring the other three for now); an impromptu play-through, with some yelling, of 10/5; how I’m practicing 10/11 (and a couple of minutes of actual practicing).

Thanks so much to listeners who have written reviews on iTunes. Unless I get 100 reviews by December 20–and it doesn’t yet look like I will–there will be only five more episodes of this podcast. Thanks for being my practice buddy!
