What I'm playing this week

On the cello:

I'm still practicing the two Popper etudes that are in D flat major, and I think they are helping me to center on that key.

Another thing that helped was watching a YouTube video of Yo Yo Ma playing Waldesruhe. Sometimes pictures are just the best thing. It helped a lot to see what bowings and fingerings he used, more than just hearing it would.

On the piano:

Brahms Op. 118
Bach prelude and fugue in c minor, WTC, Book II.
Gershwin, three preludes
Chopin, Prelude No. 8
Piano accompaniment to Waldesruhe

Plus a bit of sight reading

Wish I had more time, but I do what I can!
