Tonight. 7pm I have a recital. :shock::shock::|Only one piece this time (but a piece that I have some "technical difficulties" with.) Chopin's Mazurka 33/4. I'll leave a post after tonight's performance. I'll tell you guys if I grew out of the clamy-shaking-hand-knee-thumping-the-bottom-of-the-piano mentality.

*breathe* :idea:

anyone else experience that sensation of playing a wrong note and then automatically the hand starts to tremble with speed that you can not normally achieve? :evil::evil:SUCKS!

Ah yes, the joys of stage fright. The trick is not to care. Before a recital, I have the odd habit of telling people, "Come see me screw up!" I fully expect every recital to be a complete failure. To expect anything more would make me panic. I find that by recusing myself from the idea that I might give a good recital, I always do.

I have a mix-tape of world-famous pianists screwing up royally. To know that Horowitz, Rubenstein or even Poillini (yes, I have a recording of Pollini making note errors in live performance!) make somtimes egregious slips, is very heartening! So keep playing! We'll always mess up, that's the one sure (human) thing. :D
Per Sapientiam Felicitas!
