Well, I did it! It went well...I wasn't shaky or nervous, though I did have a lot of energy. I felt like I was in control. I will write more later. One thing I did notice was note endings. I've never really been comfortable enough with the bow in performance (solo, that is) to go to a few hairs and suspend....but it was as if I didn't want to let some of the notes go. I found an energy with an audience that isn't there otherwise. A moment when the note lingers or is still just barely going...it is so full. I always thought that the loud hard fast bows at the end of wild runs were the biggest impact, but it is not so, because they are over quickly and the anticipation and tenseness almost is not there. This performance gave me a lot to think about. Anyway. More later. Have a good day everyone!
