A report on a performance of Opus 10, including a rock star moment, and a plan for Op. 25.
On crafting a summer schedule and delving into Chopin etudes 25/1,2,5, and 6, plus a really nice melody by Muczynski.
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.
Thoughts on the Cortot edition of the Chopin etudes and on walking the line between caring lots and not at all about the composer’s intent, with snippets of 25/7 and 11.
Report on a couple of performances of Op. 10 and the first half of Op. 25, with bits of most of them.
Little bits of 10/1, 2, 4, 7, 11, and 12. Also, N1 memorized (with some screaming).
