Daniel's Practice Diary

Hello everyone, I am currently working on my Licentiate of Trinity College London (LTCL) for performance

 

My recital consists of

 

(1) Bach's Prelude and Fugue in B minor, BWV 893

A lot of practice and careful analysis required for the fugue. 

Extra Careful on the fingerings

Missing stylistic touch for baroque period

Need to increase the speed

(2) Mozart's Sonata in D major, K576

Stylistic problem again, too aggressive on the touch 

Lack of attention to details on the articulation

Inconsistencies in speed

(3) Mendelssohn's Variations Serieuses

Differentiate the dynamics instead of all forte

Careful on the fugue section 

(4) Ravel's Sonatine

Better put alot more effort in this as 2nd and 3rd movement are both untouched.

 

Action Plan

Finish learning Ravel's Sonatine 

Put in more effort in Bach's prelude and fugue 

Maintain Mozart's sonata and Mendelssohn's variations the way it is for now.
