what a beautiful program. Its almost the same as one I did a cou@ple of years ago. The slow movement of the Schubert is one of the greatest piece sof writing on the planet a sfar as I am cocnerned.
I am swimming from Japan. Please tell me when to turn left.

Buri, I just finished practicing that slow movement, as a matter of fact. The very last phrase, isn't it so warm and embracing?

Eugene, wow, you're right. I was just going by what my accompanist said when I chose the date. No one else seemed to catch it when I mentioned it. I'm going to change my blog now, and you won't tell anyone otherwise, will you? ;)

Too bad your in Alaska and I'm not... I would love to see and hear it. I try to go to as many music oppurtunities as possible.

Good luck and I'm sure your performance will be amazing!

Do you think you could get someone to video tape one of the pieces and post it?!

As a matter of fact, I got some nice recording equipment for my birthday back in May, but I never could figure out how to use it. Too bad...

Same thing with me! I got some for my birthday in July and it's so confusing...

It's a mini disc with the sonopak microphones. The mini disc is nothing without the good mics.
I have a few random recordings of Bach and the lark ascending, but cant figure out how to edit out the extra time picking up the violin and turning off the recorder etc.
Too bad indeed...

Well, I still wish you luck and hop everything goes great!
