After a month of playing the Marcelo Sonata Allegro, pizzicato (with the metronome, always with the metronome...), I started bowing it yesterday and this morning I was able to play it through without any errors! Now to increase the tempo...
I had to go back and spend several days re-working a couple passages in the Breval Sonata Rondo, particularly where those Bbs show up; but today I was finally able to increase the tempo another notch.
Lessons resume in July; I'm hoping to be ready to demonstrate these two pieces to my teacher, and that I will have made some progress on the first part of the Marcelo.
Quick question, I've been reading your blog quite a while now, and really enjoy it. One of the things that I struggle with as a late learner, and have to really work on, is musicality and the feel of a piece. I don't see you mention that much, do you spend much time on that?
