 What are your unusual practice techniques?
Author: ruben 
Date:   2019-11-05 14:17

To be trendy, I could use "creative" instead of "unusual". I will launch the discussion by giving one of my own. Now and again, I improvise "à la manière de". In other words, if I'm playing a Debussy piece, I'll play a long cadenza somewhere in it in which I try to sound like Debussy, or Stravinsky, or whomever. My efforts may sound inept, but it gives me insight into the composer's style, sense of form and harmonic language. I once attended a piano recital in which the pianist, Vlado Perlemuter got very lost after a lapse of memory in a Fauré Nocturne. Perlemuter improvised and did it so well that few people were aware that he had got lost, though the hall was full of pianists. The moral of the story is that he knew his Fauré..and kew how to improvise! Your unusual practice techniques, please. It can be anything: scale practice, physical exercises, etc.
