Picking a repertoire is hard: I forgot all about the mechanics of page turns - what happens if the music falls off the stand, what to do in between songs so I'm not fumbling around for an uncomfortable amount of time.

I also found I get tired and start sighing, as well as decreased engagement with the music.

I need to record and listen to everything I will be playing. Everything.

Fuga sounds best when phrasing starts quiet and slow, builds, then ends the same way. No real pauses, just breaths.
