My orchestra’s concert last weekend went surprisingly well. Given the hugely ambitious programme & the break-neck speeds we tend to go at, there was an extremely high potential for disaster. It’s a really awesome group but lately I’ve been disappointed with how our concerts turned out, so this was especially satisfying. Now we’re onto our next programme and it’s been radically changed from what was originally planned…. so I’m right back to disappointed ‘cause I really liked it before. On the up-side, with the killer concert behind me & the reduced interest in the next one, I’m looking forward to doing less repertoire work and devoting more attention to things that will enhance my chamber music playing, which is my priority… mainly sight-reading… or just reading music in general.. and some basic technique work, mainly my bow-arm. Jeez…. only my 3rd entry and I’m already repeating myself.
