Week 3: Discovering Schubert Month
As we're coming up to the last week of Discovering Schubert Month, I'm keen to hear of your insights and takeaways from your month's work.
Here's the Week 3 thread, where you may post your text and video updates! I've only got one question for you this week:
What does it take to build Schubert into your life?
I've previously asked you about the piece you are working on, a passage you are satisfied with, and one you're less satisfied with. I've also learned a lot about your musical imagination and pianism by asking you how you might describe the character of your piece, the pianistic tools you use to convey the aforementioned character, and particular elements of the piece you notice by playing it. I'm always so moved by the process of learning a piece of music, playing it, performing it, and continuing to live with it. Playing piano has always been a bastion in my life and I hope that through your regular ritual and practice it can be a source of comfort and empowerment for you too.
I hope you'll consider proposing your Schubert piece for Piano Community's upcoming Community Concert, and to share your work with other supportive members of our community! I really believe I am awarded deep insights when I take the time to deeply consider the elements of my colleagues' successes.
If you're new to the Schubert gathering this week, welcome-it's never too late to join! You may find the guidelines for participation in the Rules and FAQ thread.
See you below,
Hi. I’ve been occupied working in ICU for Covid team and practice has suffered. I think I‘ve memorized 142 # 2 but my playing leaves a lot to be improved on. Will try playing this without music and in dark. I don’t know if I missed the final community event but hope not. Gerry W. Just listened pretty bad Playing and bad recording with my I phone resting against books. Oh well. Will work on it some more
I am still practicing 5 Valses Sentimentales. The #5, 13, 18,19 and 20...I did not made a video...And I will try to do it until March second! Maybe not all the valses I am practicing, I will see until then. But, I want to share this video with you all to inspire you in this Schubert Challenge. Enjoy!
Dominic Cheli I think you will love it!
