Archives for posts with tag: Opus 10


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


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.


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!

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.


Hanging out on a ledge, partway up the mountain; simplified versions of the three “new” etudes.

 

 



A performing first, a new piano, and a newly quiet office (because of noise for now).

Plus snippets of all of Op. 10 and some Op. 25.


A mild epiphany about my learning patterns; summer begins; horrible crash-through renditions of 10/1 and 10/2.

 


A report on a performance of six of the etudes from Op. 10, with a little bit of coughing.



85: Tired

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