What is the best way for keeping pieces in shape once they've been worked thru and learned?
Once I've learned and worked through a piece I'm having difficulties finding the time to keep them "under my fingers". Many of the pieces are long concertos and sonatas and there just isn't time to pull them out and play them completely or even in part and still have sufficient time to practice my current music as well.
Am I viewing this all wrong - should I just trust that my fingers will remember what I worked on six months ago and pull the piece out again only if I'm going to perform it? My list of completed works is growing (which is a good thing) but I can't figure out how to keep them all maintained and still learn new music as well.
