Not mine, but Paganini’s one. Number 24. That’s what I learn now on piano and trumpet.
Memorizing the first 8 measures (about 48 notes) took me about half to hour on piano for the right hand, and I do like how it sounds. Unfortunately even small addition of the left hand (and it is rather simple) slows things down noticebly, since I can not look simultaneously to the different parts of the keyboard and frequently miss the needed keys when trying to play one hand ‘automatically’, i.e. without looking at it. That was rather complex, but doable, and I expect that practice will heal this.
But trumpet. Trumpet is great by itself, but when I started to play the same caprise #24, after about half of an hour I found that produced ‘music’ sounded like a crap. Even when I play music too slow (and I can not play it very fast anyway) it did not sound good. Problem happend to be in the interval I introduced between the times. I somehow decided that after playing the first measure (6 notes for example) according to the note timings, I have to have some delay before going to the second one. Apparently that was very wrong. The first tune in the next measure should be played immediately after the last one in the previous measure (the last one should be played long enough according to the melody of course).
And after I opened for myself this simple rule, things changed dramatically. Even my rather slow trumpet playing of the caprise produced very interesting sounds. I did enjoy how the sounds flew. And even started to accelerate it a bit, which was noticebly less complex compared to the case, when I did not really hear the right music because of the delays between the measures.
So, the music week started exceptionally interesting, let’s see what else I will find out.
