The best kind of rehearsals are the ones that you leave soaked in sweat and barely able to form coherent sentences. Had one of those today and it felt really nice.
Spent about an hour and half with my pianist going over the Schumann Three Romances, Op. 94. It was motivating, not to mention exciting, to work with someone that would give musically. Too often we play with pianist that are simply going through the motions.
He said that I was freaking him out because I was rehearsing like a real musician, which was a very nice compliment.
I’m on cloud 9, though completely and utterly exhausted. Need energy to get through the rest of today/tonight.
Happy Music Making!
