Since the bass clef of the last 17 measures is repetitious, I practiced this section tonight hands together. There is quite a bit of repetition here, actually, so I can confidently say that after about 20 minutes into practice this evening, I had this last bit of WDAT re-committed to memory and at tempo! After that was nailed down, I returned to the first 30 or so measures since there are still some weak spots there. I should be moving on to the final 26 measures of the first section (which remember, are repeated in the final section, right before those final 17 measures) starting tomorrow. By this time next week, I may actually have WDAT back in my memory, but some parts not up to tempo yet. I expect to have re-mastered this piece by the weekend of next week! More musical notation to discuss tomorrow and that promised mini-bio of Grieg will be here soon, I promise!
How am I doing? What do my readers think of this so far? Please comment! And if you have not already, please follow me on Twitter (suzukibedamned)!
