Quote from: Guido on April 19, 2007, 04:19:35 PMYes. How did you know? Its so annoying! But I'll soon be at Cambridge, and the single positive thing about that is the beautifully fast internet connection. 100Mb...mmmmmmmmm...
Quote from: aquariuswb on April 20, 2007, 08:02:06 AMTomorrow and the next day I will perform Beethoven's 22nd Piano Sonata, Op. 54. I then make my conducting debut (!!!) on Wednesday -- a new piece for full symphonic wind ensemble composed by my friend Will Mogey called Sousa's Dream. A very exciting few days are in store for me!

Quote from: aquariuswb on April 22, 2007, 09:14:45 PMThe first performance went all right -- a few (sometimes badly) botched spots, but nothing I wasn't able to play through. The second performance (earlier tonight) was without a doubt my most successful recital performance to date. I was able to focus completely despite the nerves. There were again a couple botched spots here and there, but far fewer and far less severe in general than the previous go-round. I played the second movement faster than I usually do but it came off well. The main thing was that I was able to bring forth the musical structure and phrasing/shading/dynamics effectively (for an amateur, at least). It just felt good.I might be able to get the sound recording of the latter performance, but I am graduating soon and the recording might not be made available before I leave school. Thanks for the interest, fellow posters! I'll let you know how the conducting goes on Wednesday.
