Day 115 - Mendelssohn mvt 3 // working on getting this lighter but also still have some cleaning up to do intonation wise 😬 and also need better control over my TEMPO omg. getting closer though! Also just heard two of my favorite favorite jazz musicians (Ambrose and Linda oh!!) play trio together and both of them have just SO much control over the sound worlds their instruments can make it’s really really wonderful ❤️ makes me want to go practice + experiment for myself!
Inspired by some thoughts on the dangers of beauty/perfection over inherent musical vulnerability/maybe imperfect expression (@violinist.com_ ‘s interview with Tetzlaff), @elenaurioste’s call for actual practice videos in which violinists are truly working things out, and a “practice what you preach” mentality following my teaching @mgsarutgers today, I offer up this evening’s short clip from the Nocturne of Shostakovich Concerto no. 1—in it, I’m trying to find the balance between feeling and expressing music that is this dark, this quietly tortured, this inevitable, and the effects that said feelings can have on my intonation 😂
P.S. come hear Shostakovich with @pyomusic@kimmelcenter this Sunday!
P.P.S. sorry to my neighbors for the late night practicing 😬
Astor Piazzolla y su Orquesta - Pulsación (Trova TLS-5038, 1969)
⊙ Pulsación es el segundo larga duración de Astor Piazzolla para el sello de Alfredo Radoszynki, Trova. El LP fue grabado en el legendario estudio ION de Buenos Aires en Agosto de 1969 y editado ese mismo año.
La formación con que Astor grabara este disco anticipa un poco la idea primaria del maravilloso Conjunto 9 del período 1971-72. Ciertamente este álbum fue confeccionado por Radoszynki con una cara A donde se encuentran los 4 temas de la saga Pulsación, composiciones nuevas de Astor que sirvieran de banda sonora de un Film de Carlos Páez Vilaró; y fue completado en su cara B con los instrumentales grabados 1 año antes (agosto de 1968) que fueran editados a finales de 1968 en el doble LP "María de Buenos Aires", a nombre de Piazzolla-Ferrer.
Personnel ( #1 -4 -Agosto de 1969):
Astor Piazzolla, bandoneón, arreglos y dirección
Dante Amicarelli, piano
Antonio Agri y Hugo Baralis, violines
Simón Zlotnik, viola
José Bragato, cello
Cacho Tirao, guitarra
Arturo Schneider, flauta y saxo
Kicho Díaz, contrabajo
José Corriale, percusión

“Super to be reminded of the mastery of the ACO in the performance of the Beethoven 1. Wonderful to hear the Beethoven 2, so rarely performed - a delightful treat. But the Eroica was a revelation - thought I knew it well - clearly there is so much more, as evident in this inspired ACO performance. As an audience colleague remarked with a grateful sigh - 'ah...they give us so much! Good to be back!' Thank you ACO and ANAM - enjoyed your obvious enjoyment in performing!” – Beethoven 1, 2 & 3 Audience Member, Melbourne.
Only five performances remain in our Beethoven 1, 2 & 3 tour, now in Sydney and next In Brisbane. Ticket link in our bio. All photos by Julian Kingma, and featuring musicians from ACO and @lifeatanam. #beethoven#beethoven250#aco

I get questions all the time about where I learned to record, arrange, play in different styles, and how I've found certain opportunities The answer is that I didn't learn these skills at a place or from one single person, and that the things I've experienced are not a result of luck and magic. These things came from continuous hustle and a lot of failure. One thing I'm grateful for is that my mom never let me believe I couldn't do something and always encouraged me to let my curiosity lead me. One day, I said, "I want to cover songs. I should go figure out how to do that." I didn't wait for someone to tell me how. I asked the internet. I read a bunch. I studied people who were good at these skills. I reached out and asked questions. I failed a bunch, but I never let myself get discouraged.
I think we get into trouble when we rely on other people being in charge of our learning and growth. At the end of the day, it's up to you. You just have to be okay with not knowing all the answers yet and being bad at something new for a bit until you get the hang of it. You have to be okay with stepping outside your comfort zone. The truth is, I'm still learning daily, and I like that I'm still growing everyday. It's a grind, but I've grown to enjoy the process.
