What I’m up to these days :)

March 6, 2011

So… what am I up to these days? What am I practicing?

WELL if you’re not interested sorry. Haha 🙂 but should be interesting enough… because I am practicing two of the most awesome pieces ever! (well I say this for every piece I play… but hey, they are all good!)

One, Clair de Lune by Debussy. This became really famous through Twilight, but really, it is not all about that! I will give a better representation of that piece on my next entry, should be fascinating.

Second one…. yes the Chopin Ballade I talked about last last time, played by Zimmerman. I am trying really hard to play like him, but to be honest, this one is one of the hardest I’ve ever done. The hardest ever was Ravel’s piece, which I forgot the name of, and the second hardest was La Campanella by Liszt.

Anyway, I am enjoying both of them very much and am planning to play them about next month (probably?) in a hospital for a volunteering activity. Super excited, but still, they are hard. Maybe not technically, but to convey exactly what the composer wanted, woah.

Especially the Ballade is a challenge, I play it too… dynamically, I should say. I play it too fast. And I’m supposed to hear the longing in it and the softness…. and to hear the contrast in the middle. Oh well. Still working on it. 🙂 And I need a goal to achieve anyways. 🙂

Maybe I’ll upload a video of me playing in the hospital later on ? 😀
