Chamber Music

February 23, 2007 at 7:07 AM

Tonight was my first chamber music session (a "just for fun" event) with 2 other violinists. They are both amazing musicians! We played Dvorak's Terzetto (minus larghetto), Eine Kliene 1st movement (easy but fun), and a few movements of Beethoven's Op. 87. It took awhile before we realized that on one of the movements there were several measures with syncopation bewteen the viola & violin parts. Score comparison time! We pulled our act together an got it on the third try! Not bad for sight reading!

Two hours into the session and my left shoulder starts burning. I got tense while site reading, and now paying for it. I have more pieces for practice and lessons now. My music stand is in danger of tipping over! Gotta love it!
