Ha ha! Just goes to show you what kinds of mischief our kids can get into when they have the house to themselves!
This is wonderful. Congratulations to you both!
The thing that stood out for me is that she has learned to put expressiveness first. That's a sign that she's "hooked".
I would suggest that she try playing it in strict tempo a few times, just to see if her rubatos are for musical reasons or because of technical difficulty on certain passages. (We all should be doing this).
I don't know if it's necessary, but in the 3rd measure of the B section she could try holding the high notes down while she plays the low notes that come next. That's how I learned it anyway and it makes me picture tears cascading down. That was my first introduction to big stretches and it really opened my eyes! (Not unlike the kind of revelations torture victims experience on the rack).
Thank you for sharing this, Cary. Do you think she'd have any interest in joining the forum? You know
it's family friendly.
