Andersen: 26 Small Caprices, Op. 37 – No. 3


Hello again! Here’s Andersen Op. 37 Number 3, so far the trickiest etude I’ve played from this book – full disclosure: I’ve read ahead a bit! This collection seems to be fairly sight-readable at or near performance tempos, but I did have to spend some time with Mr. Metronome to get this one under my fingers. The big challenges for me here were making the dynamics interesting while trying to maintain the forward momentum. I tend to get a little aggressive during faster pieces, which for me leads to cracked notes, so I’m trying to resist that tendency.

I would have loved to make the last note a little less abrupt, but ran out of time for a do-over, so it is what it is!

See you tomorrow!
