Summer Break?

May 23, 2007 at 3:58 AM

Orchestra season ended the year well. Moldau was better than I could have wished. But the real stunner was Wagner's "Elsa's Processional" from Lohengrin. It stunned the audience to a few heart-beats of silence.

Thanks to all the recommendations on what to play. Here is the final list chosen by family. The Purcell piece can be a challenge if played in the fingerings reccomended (nose bleed sections on the lower strings).

Navy Hymn
RV William's Fantasy on Greensleeves
Marine's Anthem
Purcell's Aria

And for pieces for myself, I'm going to focus on Bruch Romance (page 3 & 4, Hoffmeister's Concerto, Terzetto's by Dvorak, Beethoven and Bach for my trio group, and all the requisite etudes, scale studies, vibrato studies, etc..

It is nice to have a break (musically) for awhile.
