This week I’ve been practicing chamber music, mostly the Brahms g minor piano quartet, but also some Mozart and a Piazzolla tango. A short tangent on Clara Schumann, making brave vs. safe choices in the Brahms, and some of the ways I’m practicing this music (including singing the string parts badly).

Sorry the piano audio is a little soft this time–I wasn’t careful when I set up the microphone.



Episode 16: Lazy

In which: A Brahms tangent; Clara moments defined; a lesson with Chopin in 10/8; a before version of 10/12; lazy memorization all the way around, especially in 10/10 and 10/11.
