Memory from Cats
What a relief. I thought I wouldn’t be able to do a progress video this month but I did!! I have been so busy this month that I have barely had the time to play my violin. I started working on an etude, a piece and I wanted to polish a concerto too that I had worked on before. But none of it I could do. Luckily a couple of days ago I finally had some time and wanted to just have fun with my violin. I played through a book with songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber. When I played Memory from Cats, I immediately thought: “Ah I can play this one for my progress video!” It sounds good and it’s not too difficult.
I’ve always liked the music by Andrew Lloyd Webber and Memory from Cats is one of my favorites. Such a wonderful feeling to now play it on the violin.
The sheet music I used was actually an arrangement for clarinet. So there were no indications for bowings or shifting. To make things easier I just played everything in first position. And I used the bowings that seemed logical to me. I hope you will enjoy my recording.
