Round 5 with Paganini double harmonics

After taking another break from double harmonics, I’ve returned to working on them. I’m beginning to see some real progress: the harmonics speak clearly and ring a lot, and my intonation is much improved and more consistent.

I’m not sure how I maintained my focus on these for almost 37 minutes, but I’m glad I did as I was able to get a bit further in the passage. There isn’t a whole lot left to the passage, because the next part alternates between double harmonics and normal arpeggios.

I started with the practice strategy I ran out of time doing last time: Play at tempo but repeating each note 8 times, then 4, then 2, then as written. This was very helpful for improving my coordination when changing notes and shifting.

Way to go! Btw, did you ever hear Neikrug perform the concerto?

Unfortunately not. Have you seen this video?

Yes, I have! It was the first time I ever heard Neikrug, right after having read about him(and Dounis) for the first time. I was blown away, and have been fascinated with him and Dounis ever since! :slight_smile:
