I have a couple things on my piano right now that I'm working on, but after I'm done with those, I have no clue what to look at. I've never really felt like this before. I can help other people pick out pieces but for reason I'm having trouble deciding on pieces for myself.
That strikes a responsive chord with me. I explored several paths laid down by the Russian late romantics. But after I completed my Scriabin project, I wasn't really sure what I should play next. It seemed so odd, as it was always like I had a map in front of me. That's what gave me the idea to revisit Rachmaninoff and to relearn and rerecord those pieces digitally. When I did the first one, the Prelude in F# minor, I didn't know if the idea would work for me, as I've never been a "full circle" person who likes to go back and do things I've done before. But after posting that piece and now the G flat prelude, I see it differently and now believe that I'm using my time wisely. I also find it intriguing that I find myself not playing those pieces as I did at age 40. Nowadays I'm finding new insights into the music as I labor over them. They are easier to learn again, which saves some time. But occasionally I'll hit one of those really tricky and difficult passages that was a nemesis then, and to some degree is still not comfortable today. But I overcome them, sometimes requiring several recording takes to do it right. So... I guess this is to say that if you feel motivated and satisfied to revisit and redo some of your favorite music, then enjoy doing so. And when you get a recording that really pleases you, it feels like a celebration!
I thought when I bought the Korg MR-1000 1-bit/2.8MHz audio recorder, that I had just bought the future, so was therefore "insured". Nope, the technology didn't catch on elsewhere to the best of my knowledge and did not become the wave of the future. So as the march of progress continues, some time in the future I'll undoubtedly have to rethink the equipment issue all over again, as when I left analog recording.
