Practice Notes, Ep. 25 - Intensive mode unleashed for Eugène Ysaye's Sonata no. 3, "Ballade"

Back in full intensive mode with Eugène Ysaÿe’s Solo Sonata no. 3, which I will be recording next month for The choreography of the conclusion is challenging - the poetic nature unflinchingly underscores a particularly virtuosic section, framed by a simple, taut harmonic progression, and the body is faced with rapid string crossings... the mind is on fire, in a state of at once hyperactivity and composure!! Imagining the movement coming from the sternoclavicular joint, where the collarbone connects to the sternum, and the arm as suspension system of springs (joints).
