How many discs is too many?

None of course, they will always be too few.

Why cannot everybody's cat play Sequenza IXa?

Better to ask about "the cats fugue".

No, it's 139 eighth notes followed by a dotted quarter. In a continuous diminuendo.

The real ludicrous question is, what if you lose count? Do you have to start over again? If you play only 138 eighth notes, will it make a huge difference? What if you accidentally make a crescendo between the 71st and 72nd eighth notes? What if you don't play the eighth notes evenly and one is a dotted eighth note instead? Do you have to make the next note a sixteenth to catch up?
