September 10, 2007 at 1:01 AMAfter a week of very hard long hours writing some new software, my developer from Isreal and I took a break and went to the coast for some much needed fun away
It has been such a crazy past few weeks, I hadn't had much time to practice until today. I continued on trying Bach's 5th Suite in both standard and scordatura tuning, as well as scales in the key signature in both tunings. As I worked through both tunings, I am starting to prefer this piece in the original scordatura tuning. The chords and double stops are so much simpler and carry a resonance not possible with the standard runing.
Monday begins our new season in the orchestra. Tomorrow night we get to sight read our repetoir for the December concert. I am very much looking forward to seeing old friends again and trying some new music.
Have fun at your rehearsal. That's interesting that your orchestra doesn't have a concert until December. The community orchestra I just joined the viola section of has a concert in November (that I will have to miss for work) and then one in December about a month later. I'm glad there are two, so I won't have to miss the entire experience this fall. But then again, if they just had the first one in December like yours does, I wouldn't have to miss it at all :)
Karen, that was taken just south of Cannon beach on the Oregon coast.
