I’d like to share this page of score with you. It is the first Variation of Mozart KV331. At the beginning of the variation my piano professor Edward Auer had written the word “lovely” to remind me the spirit of the piece. That was over five years ago. I did understand how the piece should sound like, but somehow it was rather awkward for me to execute it correctly back then. I sounded more “neurotic” than “lovely” when I listened to a recording of my practice.
I certainly hope it sounds better now. I got to record KV331 from Theme through Variation IV yesterday, so you can now hear how I play this passage —
