I saw a bit of this “historic performance film footage” about Heifetz and Piatigorsky in Youtube so I bought this DVD. I then accidentally came across this CD for Julius Klengel, Piatigorsky is one of his pupils.

Piatrigorsky transcribed this famous Danzas Espanolas No 2 by Granados for cello.

Going back to Larsen

December 7, 2013

It came with Larsen medium on A and D.

I tried some other strings but I miss the original sound of it so I went back to Larsen, this time their Soloist’s edition!

The nice sound of it attracts me to practice more!

Pass, fail, merit and distinction

June 25, 2013

I failed in my forecast, I didn’t get 125. I got 120, OK not bad, it wasn’t a complete disaster.

Merit

I have 80 for the 3 pieces so I think the examiner was generous, it certainly not one of my best. I failed in scale and sight reading, 4 marks short in total, it’s 8 marks less than last time. Aural tests as expected I got the same as in last exam, no surprises!

He did it better

Distinction!

Inching closer

May 27, 2013

Baroque period music is my cup of tea, I’m inching closer to what I like. It’s kind of cleansing agent for my sleep.

I may read that book again I finished years ago.
