Glad that the musings are proving useful to some people. Any ideas for my next blog? I seem to spend half my life travelling so plenty time on my hands!
Well, now that you asked...yes.
I'm a beginner and though I have a lot of technical issues, one of the things I lack is real musicality, expressiveness. I feel like there is no life in my pieces. Sure I know what I'm supposed to do...retard, accelerate, softer, harder....but it's not "life"
You, on the other hand, play your pieces like you've lived with them all your life and own them.
A post and demo of taking something simple and making it intensely musical and expressive. Some simple piece that folks here would know but wringing every bit of emotion out of it and explaining your choices.
