I'm now studying the next piece in the Opus 60, the nr. 16. Not easy...
... when I play this lovely and unusual study, which I find thoroughly charming.
Thanks for your comment, Jeffrey. I can already feel this #16 is a charming piece, but I've not yet come to a point of fully appreciating and enjoying it...
. As a poor sight reader
, I'm still struggling to memorize its notes. Once I do that, I'll set up a metronome at a very low beat and will start playing it taking the values of the notes in consideration (the fast slurs included
). I'll then slowly increase the metronome beat and, hopefully, will reach within days the designated tempo - andantino
- without too many mistakes. From then on it is a question of playing it every day until I reach the stage where I can make a reasonable record, post it, and move on to the #17
