Always glad to help!
Just to let you know, that although I can play that piece in time, at tempo...keeping track of the voices and their balance in a piece with counterpoint is relatively new for me. So in my practice this afternoon, I played that phrase while singing the count. Played just the top voice in time, singing the count. Again played the phrase singing the count....for about 15 minutes I practiced this. It was because I originally had learned the piece and heard the middle voice and the top voice as one voice, not two. To get that top voice correct, and show the flow of the phrase, I had to be able to hear it separately from the middle voice. Otherwise, how could I show the interplay between the voices which is the real beauty of this piece? The rhythm of the piece is easy...I could play it like a typewriter, with the weight on beat one and slightly lighter on 3–no matter which voice it was— but that isn’t how I think it should be played.
So even though I could play and count this entire piece as I play it, I needed to extract the voices and know to which part of the count each note of each voice belonged to bring out the beauty that Bach built into this piece. Not easy!
But it is fascinating to see just how clever he was! So worth the effort, and my practice goal this week was to hear that top voice and shape it...while still being able to play the other two voices. Even if I just get it in that one phrase, it is a start.
When the sun shines, bask.
