I'm looking forward to it, because on Monday I was sounding good in the auditorium, and I've now memorised both movements. This will be the first time I'll have performed the second movement from memory.
As Always, I feel quietly confident. I'm not sure whether this is a good thing or a bad thing. It is good to feel confident, but you don't want to be cocky. Also Nerves are what make a live performance excellent. Hence I prefer to listen to live recordings of pieces rather than studio versions. You get the tiny mistakes, showing what a violin really sounds like (of course, these are less noticeable in the masters).
I'll be posting details up on my website (link below), and if there are any posters in Perth I'd love to meet you, as well as hear how you thought I played.
Till Next time
