OK. Got it.Posted: December 6, 2011
So the Bach is coming OK, I suppose. I haven’t really been videoing myself much until the other day after Danielle and I had a lesson. It was a fine lesson and I had been working pretty hard the few days before it. So I get the idea to tape us playing together, since this piece is a double concerto after all. I began taping right after our lesson–when she starts practicing a little bit of the Wieniawski Polonaise (this is her practicing, not performing). I convince her to play with me on camera and she agrees. We play, I think it went really well, and I was very excited to watch the video.
Long story short: my battery ran out and I didn’t get what I wanted.
My original idea for this particular post was to whine and cry about how the camera turned itself off and how I lost all the great footage, leave you with that, and then once again not post me playing the Bach. Then I thought that would be lame.
So I did what any red blooded American would have done: I got out my mo-freaking violin and played that mo-freaking piece. Well, part of it anyway. And Danielle’s not around, so it’s just the 2nd violin part, but no biggie, right? This is actually the exact half-way point of the first page, out of three pages. So it’s 1/6 of the first movement of this concerto. Not bad, one sixth down (sorta):
So I got something, although I messed up a little at the end there. It’s a shame because that part is so cool and a good flashy place to stop, but whatever. I’ll get it in the future.
