Tempo Tip (from Martin Katz)

This comes from Martin Katz, and I can testify that it has served me well over the years.  It might seem obvious, but when you are in a situation where you will be meeting your soloist shortly before you are to perform, you should prepare extreme tempos for each piece– not just to be able to play slower or faster than you think it ought to go, but to play these extreme tempi as though you really think they’re correct.  Thanks for that, Marty!
