Full steam ahead (fingers crossed)
It seems all major technical difficulties have been overcome and I can go full steam ahead with the performance of the third movement. Now it’s just a question of time and patience and if I can complete the third movement I can complete the 1st and 4th (and no doubt revisit the second). It’s taken about 12 hours (over two weeks) to do the first 80 seconds but it should be less time consuming from here. Even so we are still talking years. But that’s Sorabji for you.
Here is the opening 80 seconds in a fairly raw rendition but boy! does it sound good. Hang on in there!
