A report on a performance of Opus 10, including a rock star moment, and a plan for Op. 25.

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.

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.post it notes photo

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).

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.

91: Traction

Mostly talk, but some snippets; on making changes and not beating yourself up for mistakes (I’m working on it). Also some specifics about 25/9 and 10/10.
