All traveling musicians have to practice in hotel rooms.
Mid-June, 2015, I was just returning from Ottawa where I had premiered my newest concerto commission with 13 Strings & Kevin Mallon (Silver Angel by Constantine Caravassilis) and played Vivaldi G Minor RV 495. I was between houses, so I booked into the Holiday Inn near the Royal Conservatory and near my son’s school. On June 16, I said good-bye to my son and then practiced for an hour before driving to Waterloo for another rehearsal.
I was in the midst of my current chromatic interval routine, my Major Third Chromatic Up-Down Fill-Ins and Up-Down intervals and in the fastest and highest phase of the slurred intervals.
