Ladies and Gentleman! I present to you: "Wolf Totem" in the dark! ⚫👀⚫ #NormaandJoe#practice #inthedark
Today's practice session took place in a stairwell! I didn't have a lot of privacy (folks were actually using that stairwell); you can hear people talking and other instruments warming up in the background. However, I must learn these notes, and sometimes you've just gotta do what you gotta do! 🤷🏾♂️ #tourlife #noexcuses
Any large instrument player on an orchestra tour will tell you how difficult it is to practice while on the road. I hadn't seen Norman for two days, and I only had an hour and a half before the concert to practice this concerto and warm up for the evening's program. The next time I'll see Norma is another two days from now in Hangzhou! 😩 What that means is that we make the most of our time together, even if it is in a stairwell...in the dark... with no privacy... #dowhatyougottado#fortheloveofmusic#noprivacy #nojudgement
Today I spent time working on the opening cadenza. I'm still figuring out bowings (I'm not a fan of my choice in this excerpt), fingerings, and phrasing, but I'm happy to begin to focus on the lyrical aspects of the piece. Another mountain to climb is the 1.5 inch difference in string-length between Norma and Riley! 😲 Regardless, I've got two and a half months to learn this piece, y'all... 🕰️ #theclockisticking#TanDun
