@eighthblackbird tweeted a response: “a fascinating issue. We return to rep lots, and try to find something unique to do with it. Considered memorizing?”
…and yes, that’s one of the things that I’ve been thinking of doing. Is it weird if only one member of a group goes off book? Or do you just keep a music stand in front of you so it’s not like you’re showing up the rest of the group in public?
And how else does one perform “Poucha Dass” which is for solo bass, six solid pages without a rest? I need those cool iPad music stands that Fifth House Ensemble uses.
