16 Oct 2007, Tue: About 20 minutes was spent simply practising spiccato strokes. I had tried to play spiccato strokes based on what I had recalled from watching the following videos:
17 Oct 2007, Wed: During the orchestra rehearsal, we sight-read all other movements of Stravinsky's Firebird except the usual "Infernal dance of King Kashchei". After the break (which I had obviously missed the treat to ice-cream), the orchestra rehearsed the 3rd and 4th movements of Mahler's First Symphony.
In between the breaks that I have had, I tried to practise the first and second movements of Eccles' Sonata in g minor and the first movement of Dittersdorf's Concerto in E major.
20 Oct 2007, Thu: I continued to practise the spiccato strokes from I have gathered from Virtual Lesson with Andrew Anderson.
Afterwhich, time was spent practising practise the first and second movements of Eccles' Sonata in g minor and the first movement of Dittersdorf's Concerto in E major. I could now manage these with slightly more agility. More practice to master these works.
