Sounding worse to sound better; balancing freedom and control; dealing with sneaky negative thoughts; a ninja practice technique that has me drowning in office supplies. Also 25/7 from memory, bits of 25/11, 25/10, and 10/1. Listen to the end for a special hundredth episode bonus.
Returning to the score after living without it for a few weeks; finding focus in the new school year; the hardest measure in 10/11; a practice method to get 10/12 up to tempo; work-in-progress version of N1.
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 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.
