Playing

Aug. 26th, 2016 10:11 pm
Yesterday I tried playing a piano piece that I haven't played since my mid teens (Sommarsång by Wilhelm Peterson-Berger). It's the only thing that I've really been able to play by heart, but probably also the last thing I learned to play well.

It didn't go too badly. I'll probably learn if I keep going.

That said, I think I'm improving at the piano. I should find a teacher...

I think I'm making progress at the piano. Not very great, I admit, but I'm getting better at rythm and fingering. I ought to practise details more.
I have had a couple of "wow, I can do this" moments lately. For years and years (counts back -- twenty-five or so) I have assumed to be fairly unskilled at the piano. But I have started to suspect that it was because I never tried.

Today, for example, I opened my Arien album at random, found an aria from Fra Diavolo, sat down and played it. It went decently well, considering that I hadn't played that one before. I certainly got an idea of how it was supposed to sound, and how the singer was supposed to interact with the piano/orchestra.

I'll try another one tomorrow.
