Russian Sailor’s Dance

by 043073 on October 16, 2014


I found this song quite difficult, especially because of the tempo, the dynamics, and the DS al fine.  I know I have trouble with tempo in my playing, especially allegretto and allegro, because I don’t think I practice fingering transitions enough, especially from very high notes using the octave key, down to lower notes.  I also had trouble with dynamics, but after practising this song more and more, I got a better hang of it, especially the transition from forte to mezzoforte.  I did have trouble with the tenutos and staccatos, because I sometimes forget to breathe or I use too much of my oxygen too soon, so my tenutos did not sound as good.  My staccatos don’t sound as good because I need to practice my tonguing, especially with the inclusion of staccatos in an allegretto or allegro piece of music.  The DS al fine also confused me a little bit because the first time I played it, I completely disregarded it and messed myself up, so it took some practice to get that sounding good.  Overall I need a lot of improvement, but I know that I can improve with more practice.
