In and out of a funk and then being busy looking for a job has not left much time for this project in the past 44 days or so. I have sat down and found that a lot of what I re-committed to memory is fading. Well, duh, when one doesn't practice, one loses what he/she learns. I seem to be mostly fine with the music in front of me, though, so I may not be so hard-over on committing pieces to memory any longer. Also, I may go ahead and go off on a tangent here and work on some four-handed pieces (Mozart) with a friend and maybe even some eight-handed hymnal arrangements. We'll see. Anyway, I should be returning here soon. I need to get back to Clair de lune. Just don't expect me to re-commit it to memory at this point. If I can sight-read it, I will do that. If I decide that I still want to proceed with a recital next year, I will re-commit it to memory.
