I got the final piece of my repetoir for this year today - Wieniawski's Legende Op 17. This is a great piece, a real show piece and I'm looking forward to playing it. I'll be performing this and the Telemann Fantasy 1 at the WAMTA competition later in the year, so I've got a fair bit of work to do on both of them, as well as my other piece, the Haydn Violin Concerto, which I'm performing in August (Joondalup Eisteddfod) and September (Concert Practice).

I've got two weeks off lessons now because my teacher is going away up north with his wife. It's not that bad really, seeing as he's given me 14 lessons (i think) this semester, and he's only getting paid by the uni to give me 10. Oh well, i guess it's all the better for me, considering all the other teachers are only giving their students 10 lessons a semester.

So... I've got basically 3 weeks till my next lesson, and i'll be working on perfecting the Haydn Concerto 1st movement, strengthening the first two movements of the Telemann and learning the third, and, when I get the music, learning parts of Legende
