Our little house in El Salvador has steps like this leading into the ocean :3 when the tide is low, you can step down onto the beach. When the tide is high, you can step right into the water.
Finishing Prokofiev’s 3rd piano concerto
Why is Bach so hard … ugh.
I ventured onto the auditorium stage to practice the Allemande before my recital next week, and recorded myself while doing so. Last time I clearly didn’t know how to project myself in such a large space.
Anyways … it just sounds so … clunky? There’s intonation issues, but it’s mostly the lack of legato and dynamics that are bothering me. It’s like I don’t have enough control yet even though I’ve been trying really hard to play as smoothly as possible.
I’ll go on with the recital anyways, but I feel like I’ve hit a plateau.
how to be a writer
- start to write something
- pause and read over what you have so far
- backspace everything
- exit out of your computer
- cry on the floor
This right here is a fucking hundred twenty-eighth note or semihemidemisemiquaver or quasihemidemisemiquaver notes. Beethoven decided to just go ahead and invent these little shits which you play 1/128 the length of a whole note. In non music terms, hella fast. Like 10x the speed of fuck. Not even that, these fuckers were only used in one piece by Beethoven and rarely show up in any other music. So they’re the most useless fuckers ever also. NOT ONLY THAT but they do actually use 132 note rests(rarely), which shouldn’t even be counted. You can pretty much skip it. Its like playing a note super staccato. They are the most fucking useless rests ever. Wtfg Beethoven. You created the most useless fucking note on the planet. I hope your mother’s proud(not that you could hear her if she was).
