Beethoven or Mozart :)
Do you find you gravitate towards a particular composer?
When I was studying for my ARCT in piano performance, my teacher said we were going to study Mozart.
I was ready for the challenge.
I always considered myself a Beethoven girl. But I guess it was time.
Was it a struggle or what!! I think I worked the hardest on my sonata. Harder than I did will pretty much all my other pieces. Except for 1 Prokofiev Vision Fugitives piece.
A few years later. I had a man I admired a great deal, listen to me. He asked me why I was studying Mozart? My reply was because my teacher said we were. He shook his head and said I was a Beethoven girl. Shocking isn't it!! I agreed.
I do agree that we all grow when studying composers and pieces that challenge us.
I have since learned to love Mozart. But at the time...he was a big struggle for me.
Who do you like to study and inspires something deep within you?
