Today I practiced in front of the mirror - hence, the funny selfie.
I focused on keeping my fingers close to their positions on the neck, while looking at my posture and ensuring my fingers are truly closer. I did this by playing Schradieck slowly, with a metronome, focused on intonation and right-hand posture.
I worked on Telemann again, playing it through with Mr. Metronome, as part of #tendaysoftelemann (day 9). I practiced the Adoration of Borowski with the accompaniment audio, which really helped to keep me in time and to know where the music is going.
I ended off with the Vidui of Bloch, which just seemed and felt fitting. I am really falling in love with this piece. It is as if the music is taking me somewhere afar, causing me to drift away as the piece builds up to a climax and grounds me again as I play the E, which is the final note I hold on as the piano also fades away into nothingness.
