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.
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.
