Topic: Playing Fatigue and Shortness of Breath
Hello Double Reeds!
I have my first recital in the fall and one of the piece I am playing is the Osborne Rhapsody. It is an easy going (yet tough) piece and I honestly can not get through it in one go. Actually I can barely get through the first page and a half without being fatigued. I am usually feeling some sort of chest pain and shortness of breath.
Does anyone have any tips to help enhance my performance endurance? I feel like I won't be able to get through 3/4 of a page come recital time because being nervous worsens everything.
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
