Hello there! I've been a stranger lately to this board (I've been busy)

So I'm playing Mozart in D for a concert. I've never played Mozart in D before, so I'm learning it (I played G though so I'm not a complete idiot). But the problem is that since I've heard Mozart played so badly so many times by both soloist and orchestra that everytime I pull the music out of my bag to practice that I just want to toss it in the shredder or throw my flute out the window.

I've tried many different things to try to get rid of this horrible urge, but it doesn't go away! I've tried listening to professional recordings and videos of other Mozart concertos, but it just makes want to shred music/destroy flute even more. I've tried creating a story that goes with the music, but the only story that I can come up with involves violence.

Any ideas to help me overcome this? Because it's coming to the point where I wont even practice because I know if I go to practice, I'll have to force myself to hack though some Mozart.

HELP!!!!!

That could very well be one of the weirdest things I've read this week.

But hey, try to remember old Wolfgang is not to blame for what's been done to his music, and he may be waiting down there for someone just like you to play it just right.

On the other hand, you could just cut the top off the sheet and pretend you're playing something else, that just happens to sound a little similar to something you heard before...

Maybe I could channel some of my vibrant energy on this piece. I love Mozart.
How about you try playing it back wards!After you perform it you can always burn the music. lol!!

try to remember that in Mozarts time, this was popular music, when I play the slow mvts., I pretend I am playing a love song, I think of my romances and heartbreak...or a scene in a movie...use this music to tell a story and don't play Mozart like a flute player, play it like a soprano...

When I played this in high school, I played along with the Julius Baker recording. Have you tried that one?

if I wasn't a performance major, I probably would do just that, Kara, and burn the damned thing!

I'm not sure what I'm going to do.

Oh, why can't the most popular flute pieces NOT be Mozart? Life certainly is not fair at all.

<Added>

p.s. "down there"? Oh, he certainly is "down there" because I SENT HIM THERE FOR WRITING THE EVILEST THING ON THE FACE OF THE PLANET (in my eyes, of course)!

lol...i know how you feel,, i've just been learning, Mozart's Andante in c, and after watching the videos on you-tube its makes me cringe now..its put me right off playing it..

Is this the piece your learning, or part of it anyway..
