Notes 22 Oct Recording review


  • softs softer, even if it is mf


  • this piece can be soft just because every other piece soft
  • use your instincts for pedalling instead

Midnight Ride

  • plan out dynamics, if you need to get louder, start softer before you do this


  • same comments about dynamics
  • watch bar 30-31
  • watch out for legatos

Notes 15 Oct

Spanish Dance

  • do LOTS of phrasing
  • Don’t let the phrasing change the speed
  • Don’t spend too much time in the soft
  • After you have mastered phrasing, focus on no stops
  • 2nd page is different because there is no phrasing

Midnight Ride

  • bar 27, try to have no gaps

Toccata Spirito

  • we want to try to keep up the speed as much possible
  • Dyanmics between the different sections should be just a little bit more. Do mp and mf and p all softer
  • Do this mp as soft as possible


  • make sure you lift the pedal all the way up.
