Hi Julia, this is perfect timing. Was learning to play Oblivion by Piazzolla after watching your performance on Siccas. I'm using the same arrangement as yours and I always struggled at Bar 73. The change of speed always throws me off.
I cant seems to make out the fingerings that you were using. Perhaps you can share your fingers and how you will suggest to practice this passage. Thanks!
Thank you for your time answering our questions. My perception of virtuosity has always been to be able to play practically anything and everything, no matter the genre/style, pace, etc.
Regarding virtuosity and playing in different genres/styles. Do you think it is necessary to be able to play all kinds of musical genres to be a virtuoso or is it sufficent to master one genre/style? Is it more a technical variable or a genre-like variable that makes someone a virtuoso?
Thank you for your answer :) Looking forward joining the Q&A live.
All the best,
I have another question: how to maintain virtuosity on long passages?
I can manage on one bar but when it lasts on too many bars, I can't do it anymore.
I'm thinking in particular of fast passages which imply a good independence of the left hand, for example the bars of the prelude la cavatine by Tansman.
Thank you very much Julia.
