On managing post-performance blues
January 22, 2010
Since the week-long choral workshop and public performance of Dido & Aeneas, I’ve been managing the inevitable post-performance blues by running through the first movement of Mendelssohn’s Psalm 42 every morning on waking, following an ancient score downloaded from the net and watching a YouTube performance, as uploaded by JohnnyRamm.
It’s a gorgeous Bach-like piece which will be worked on and performed by the Armidale Music Foundation over a long weekend in March, as part of their annual local choir-orchestra get-together. Regrettably I won’t be present.
