Difficult passages of music are mastered through examination and repetition of parts… By defining manageable components, and breaking down something daunting to perform into a kind of reverse assembly line of notes and inflection. Repetition, muscle memory, and anticipation serve to eliminate complexity. In this distillation there is no difficult vs. easy passage… there is only the examination of parts; the defining of components which can be managed. This processing removes insecurity, and shifts focus from the self to the simple execution of parts. An idea is transformed from abstract to concrete as phrases gradually re-contextualize… and, ironically and beautifully, we come closer to delivering on the composers’ intent when we take our own fear of failure out of the equation.
