Tom - the more I struggle with the A Canou Virou the more I admire you playing of the piece. At least to me, it seems like a quantum jump in needed skill to play this piece than any of the others for D02.
Ed, you are absolutely right. This piece (I still cannot play it right) is the most difficult one we've been assigned yet. By the way, this was last year's Exam Piece
I went back and listened to some of last year's exam submissions (big mistake) and found some people played it almost perfectly.
This one will likely take a long time to learn to play well. Perhaps your teacher has some ideas on how to get this one mastered.... But I am now really working on the boxed areas. You may do this already, but I didn't when I started working on this one. I think that was a mistake... I used to assume they were meant to "confirm" a difficult passage, so to speak. I now think maybe they're meant to indicate: "these are difficult, master these first"...
Hang in there!
