Yes, I totally agree with Carl about playing in different rhythms and accents. This is how we had to practice all of Tchaikovsky’s. cadenzas (we learned them all together) when I was at college. The best advice we were given was to avoid playing any rhythm that came easily – that’s most likely the one you slip into when things get uneven. Also play in triplets, 5s and 7s because they don’t come naturally to most people. Another thing we did was to repeat every finger twice, while also playing in triplets. I remember being able to play the while of Hasselmans La Source his way. Repeating every single note but accenting in triplets. I did it for fun. Must have been mad!!! (It was bloomin’ even though ;))
