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!
A report on last week’s recording session, including maintaining a feeling of gratitude while recording; a few Tin Pan Alley tunes;on returning to practicing Chopin.
Tunes played here include “Whippoorwill,” “My Little Ever Lovin’ Sugar Babe,” “He’d Have to Get Under–Get Out And Get Under (To Fix Up His Automobile),” and “Twilight.” To the best of my knowledge, they’re all public domain.
They’re soundproofing the room next to my office, which is wonderful news (it’s where the gamelan rehearses), but it means there’s lots of banging and motor sounds for a couple of days. I’ll resume the podcast next week, when I can hear myself think in there.
