After a lot of rehearsing, we had our first performance of the Grieg Piano Trio!
It went rather well; and was such fun! The pianist sneezed mid-way through the first page of the piece, causing the violinist and me to giggle – quite a lot!
Although we all had our bought of little mistakes, it really helped us find out what parts to focus on for Friday’s rehearsal (with a new, well-known tutor!)
For the strings: sustaining the sound through the whole note, looking and chords/double-stops
For me: Solos – ensuring that I have all of the bowing and fingering sorted! Also, expression and the feel of the first page…
