Today’s Practice

Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto – 2nd violin part.

Watched the YouTube video recommended by our conductor. The intent, get a feel for entrances and tempos. I’ve never played it before, so all is new.

It’s not that difficult, but sitting in the section Principal chair, there’s no hiding. Must know what the fuck I’m doing. Mistakes are too embarrassing to escape practice, although I can get away with it in the other two orchestras.

Is wonderful to be given this position, but I feel God pointing his finger at me – YOU MUST PRACTICE! In an Italian accent. What the hell?
