Hey, Practice Buddies! It’s a new decade and the podcast is back. Today, some Beethoven sonatas, a little Chopin and, as always, some thoughts on imperfection…

 

 

The podcast is starting up again! Featuring 25/11 and 10/2, with only a little screaming.

On crafting a summer schedule and delving into Chopin etudes 25/1,2,5, and 6, plus a really nice melody by Muczynski.

Report on a couple of performances of Op. 10 and the first half of Op. 25, with bits of most of them.

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!
