I am going to do a series of play-along podcasts, and I would love some suggestions for which pieces to play. I am going to choose a movement of a concerto, sonata, or maybe something like Sicilienne or Elegie, and play it at a slow speed for the listener to play along with. We all know how to obsess over a passage, but there is great value in “combing through” a piece at a slow pace, even if there are snarls along the way. It’s good to hear things at multiple speeds, and playing them slowly, with discipline is a great way to build muscle memory and stamina.

Any suggestions or requests?

PS: I have not yet gotten my AST journal. As soon as I have a few copies, I will happily mail them to those of you who want them.
