After I’m done with “Lagrimar.” I think I’d like to give another long one a pop — come up with a nice general theme and then just sort of hum it to myself and chew on it 24/7 until I get a way to approach it. Unfortunately, the viola seriously suffers when I do this, because I just cannot manage both. I’ll have to keep up on that as well as I can while arranging and learning pieces, and just put it away when I’m writing. There’s nothing else for it. 😦
And I’m going to at least have a vague outline this time. And an idea of where I want to end up, instead of just casting around at random like a star-nosed mole in a football stadium.
