Worked a little detail on Zarabanda and Prelude 1, getting hands back into shape. Played Prelude 2 - needs just a little more work.

Need to work on getting tone even - the mid-range does really ring and is definitely not p when I'm trying to play p and pp.

Started Prelude 3 - got 1st meas up to = 48. I think this will be even more challenging than Prelude 1. It's definitely longer.

Back after a spring break of sorts and just played through Solos for the Harp Player. I sort-of know everything in there.

Tried to play around in audacity with a piece I had recorded. I was unable to do anything with it because the source material was lousy. So that may be part of the reason I extended my break.

Also, 1950s spike heels are optimal for pedal changing - smooth and efficient.
