Andersen: 26 Small Caprices, Op. 37 – No. 13

Yay! I’ve reached the halfway point in Andersen Op.37! The worst keys are finished!

As with a lot of these etudes, one big challenge in this one is playing musically even though it’s pretty repetitive. F-sharp major isn’t typically a whole lot of fun, but in this etude it fits pretty nicely under the fingers so it definitely wasn’t as painful as it could have been. I went back to using my Zoom H2 recorder this time, and I think it does a better job picking up dynamics and nuances in tone color. The big drawback is that it also picks up all the noisy breaths, my current problem area!

I hope to be back tomorrow with No. 14! See you then!
