Welcome to my world. The pieces I used to be able to play must outnumber the pieces I can still vaguely play by ten to one.
I think the harder I work at sight-reading, the worse I get at memorising
I'm not sure if this whole "It's good to be possible at both" thing is a joke or not
Perhaps my poor brain cell is just cracking under the strain...
A few months ago I could play Moonlight Sonata 1st mvt from memory as I'd learned it several years ago (the right notes, no real articulation) all the way through. Now I fail every time
I wouldn't worry about it too much, that mvt is pretty repetetive as they go, so there's a lot of scope for getting lost. Anyway, look on the bright side, the more times you forget and relearn something, the more ingrained it will eventually be.
