Well, I'm back to myself for awhile I think. I got a new recital date, which is so far away...April 10th. THat posed a problem because there was no way I could motivate myself to play this music (except the Beethoven) for another five months. SO my teacher and I decided on a new Bach and to play the Mozart 3 first movement which I've played a kazillion times before but never in a recital like this. So the program is now Ysaye, Beethoven (all), Bach (two movements), and Mozart (one movement). Quite different. But I ran home and couldn't wait to practice. It helped that the Mozart immediately sounded good. It will be a challenge to work on it for so long. The Bach, which one is it...hm...Sonata no.3 Largo and Allegro assai. The largo is so beautiful and I've never played it before. The allegro has some tricky passages, though it seems easy. It is almost midnight and I'm wondering if I put my practice mute on, if I will bother anyone? Yup. I'm feeling better.
