Audition Daily Blog 07

21 November 2015 #2

For some reason, while I was practicing this late afternoon, I got the idea that it would be fun to share recordings of my playing with you, my loyal reader. So I give you two of the excerpts which are consuming so much of my time and energy lately. From Wagner’s Die Walkure and Verdi’s Falstaff. I hope you’ll enjoy them as much as I do!

Now, how it’s going today: fine. Making progress. Not a lot to report that’s new in the way of emotional upheaval or fantastic progress, nor is there lack of progress. Just pluggin’ along. Over the course of the day, I made it through every excerpt at least once. Usually played through each several times before moving on; and often worked on some trouble spots.

I did have a dream last night that I had been hired to play one opera with Lyric. And then in the same dream I was going to play with another orchestra–maybe it was the CSO, but after arriving at the hall, I went back to my car to find it had been towed for parking in a no parking during rush hour zone.

Mild stress nightmare stuff. Maybe there will be more to come in the next week. Tomorrow marks one week to the audition.

  1. I like the idea of sound excerpts from your work.
