Working more on Chopin’s Prelude in B Minor, now able to get all the way through this short and beautiful tune. Still some accuracy and touch to work on, but closer! What I find interesting in using my iPhone to record is that when I feel that I’m playing truly soft, the phones audio still seems so much louder than I want. Some of it can be the frequencies the phone picks up, but I know when I finally get the audio to sound right, the live performance has so much more color, depth, and warmth.
Side note: my frequent recordings have made me realize that while I have the head pop down, I still haven’t quite mastered the legendary @brianzator leg kicks yet. One day...

1/100: Spent my first day working out of the Method of Movement and learning this Chorale on Marimba. It was a little harder than I expected it to be, so its not to great of a run. Then I went to the piano and worked on some triplet and 16th note arpeggio timing and Db and Gb Green Scales, my least favorite scales to play.

Ian David Rosenbaum
Praised for his “excellent” and “precisely attuned” performances by the New York Times, percussionist Ian David Rosenbaum has developed a musical breadth far beyond his years. He made his Kennedy Center debut in 2009 and later that year garnered a special prize created for him at the Salzburg International Marimba Competition.
Mr. Rosenbaum joined the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two program in 2012 as only the second percussionist they have selected in their history. He has appeared at the Bay Chamber, Bridgehampton, Chamber Music Northwest, Music@Menlo, Norfolk, and Yellow Barn festivals.
Highlights of the 2017-2018 season include The Industry’s world premiere production of Galileo, with music by Andy Akiho and a libretto by Yuval Sharon, a ten-city tour of the West Coast with Sandbox Percussion, and the world premiere of there is no one, not even the wind by John Luther Adams with the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.
In early 2017, Mr. Rosenbaum released his first solo album, Memory Palace, on VIA Records. It features five commissions from the last several years and includes collaborations with Brooklyn Rider and Gina Izzo.
Mr. Rosenbaum is a member of Sandbox Percussion, HOWL, the Pittsburgh New Music Ensemble, Foundry, and Novus NY. He has recorded for the Bridge, Innova, Naxos, and Starkland labels and is on the faculty of the Dwight School in Manhattan. Mr. Rosenbaum endorses Pearl/Adams instruments, Vic Firth mallets, and Remo drumheads.
