What I’m getting myself intoPosted: March 5, 2011
I’ll come clean. I actually just listened to the piece for the first time yesterday. OK, not the first time ever, as I’ve heard it played in years past, but the first time since this endeavor began.
I’m officially scared. And not because I was blown away by its difficulty – I’m a bit too naive to know when something’s hard or not – but at certain points as we were listening, Danielle just started laughing. Not a good sign.
If you’re already familiar with the piece, then this is nothing new. If not, check out Paganini’s Caprice #24 played by one of the greatest, if not the greatest, violinists of all time – Jascha Heifetz.
