I was just wondering how you folks go about learning pieces for a recital. Do you work on all of them at the same time; or do you take the harder pieces (and sections within pieces) and work them up to a degree of comfort, then incorporate the less challenging material? Or do you follow a more linear process? Or do you not work on pieces for a recital because you learned them all ages ago and you find the idea of "learning" pieces for a recital laughable?
I'm aiming for the fall, and I haven't prepared for something like this in a few years. Moreover in the past, I'm not sure I went about preparing in the smartest of ways... Some input would be welcomed gladly.
