I'm really looking forward to my violin lesson tomorrow. I'm in the process of picking out a bunch of new repertoire. One piece that I'm hoping to take on is Dvorak's Romance in F minor. It's such a beautiful piece, and very moving, It's always been a favorite, and when I started playing violin it was one of a few pieces that I had hoped to learn one day so it will be a great mark in my playing career of the violin to learn this piece. There are so many wonderful pieces out there and I wish I could learn them all. I have enjoyed taking out a Caprice by Ekhardt-Gramatte that I started working on before my exam and then put aside while I was preparing for my exam. It really brings out a lot of the different tones you can get out of a violin, too bad her Caprices aren't performed more often. I'm also looking forward to starting back at the piano this week. I have finally memorised my Ravel Prelude, and part of my Beethoven Sonata! It should be a busy and interesting week! Well I think that's just about it for this blog posting.
