These times are good for practicing, as I texted a student today.

In this episode: an insight about Chopin thanks to Pauline Viardot, with bits of mazurkas by both of them. Also a look at some small hand workarounds in Lili Boulanger with some moments of improvised practicing in Boulanger and Rachmaninov. And a report on a concertgoing activity that brought me great joy.

Stay safe and healthy, everyone!
