HVL Etude #5 complete but still rough
Well I have managed to make it thru the entire etude but I still have difficulty maintaining a consistent performance. I have settle on my fingering, and I can pretty much play all sections accurately when they are separate (and I'm not recording). I think I am close enough to start focussing on phrasing and articulation. Hopefully I can get a good performance by the end of the challenge.
This has been a frustrating experience because it didn't seem to be THAT challenging, technically. However, it sure has been challenging for me. I am glad I am learning this etude as it has always been my favorite of HVL.
