Extremely cool, looks like things are sinking inYisrael van Handel wrote: ↑Thu Nov 09, 2017 8:52 pm...
I would like to thank you for participating in this thread. Your comments are exceedingly helpful. I have not until now paid the strictest attention to three things you mentioned: holding bass notes to their full value, stopping notes where needed, and making sure that position changes are instantaneous. The first two make fingering much more complex and demand a great deal of attention; the third is simply a question of practice, stability, and improving technique.I believe that I have advanced enough that I am ready to tackle all three. I am working on them. I plan to post #14 again, and to apply lessons learned for future pieces. It requires a completely different way of practicing, with much more attention to and analysis of mechanical motion. I am expecting significant results. Again, many thanks for your comments, without which I would not have been inspired to take these steps.
Yes to the mechanical analysis, in the service of your musical ideas!
