It was a day of listening to music...phew. Today I have listened to completely: Wieniawski No.1, Wieniawski No. 2, Zigeunerweisen (Gil Shaham). Tchaikovsky Concerto, Sibelius Concerto, Wieniawski No. 2 (Jascha Heifeitz). Already it's like 3 hours of music right there...I'm not finished though. I also listened to Saint-Saens Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, Chausson's Poeme, Saint-Saens Havanaise, Massenet's Meditation, and Ravel's Tzigane (Itzhak Perlman). Oh wow. That's almost 5 hours.

I've finished writing my Cadenza for the Mozart No. 3. I'm trying to whip it up for the kids I teach next week at elementary strings camp. In the morning us "student-teachers" (Highschoolers.. Yea!) play for the youngsters. I plan on playing Romanza Andaluza and my Mozart 3. I really want to inspire these kids, it'll be so much fun. I might bring a CD of the 24 Caprices...but that might be too much for their little ears.

I think I'm finally starting to line up my audition repertoire:
Concertos: Mozart 3, and Brahms or Tchaikovsky or Wieniawski No. 2.
Bach: D minor Partita
Brilliant Concert pieces: Romanza Andaluza, Zapateado (both Sarasate), Chausson's Poeme, Beethoven's Romances.
Etude: Kruetzer 2, 10; Paganini 13 or 24 (don't know if I have enough time for him).
Contemporary: Red Violin Chaccone.
Scales: don't want to think about them. rofl.

Gee, I think that's it. Vacation tomorrow...wonder how I'm gonna fit the violin in the car. Lol.
