I've never used Shar before to order music. I gave them a try, and I am getting impatient, even though I still have a few more days to wait. I usually use Hutchins and Rea because they are so quick, and they are from Atlanta. However, Hutchins and Rea didnt have any copies of Bruch the other day.

So, the photocopy I own of Bruch No. 1 (given to me by a former teacher) has served as my main means of learning the concerto. My etudes are done, and I don't have any Bach to work on, and my Concerto is all I have left to "work" on. I'd rather wait until Dr. Eanes gives me his fingerings and bowings before I do any actual learning.

I suppose I could record Bach. I wish I did not buy a casette player. The quality is so poor. What makes me laugh is that you can barely hear a difference between my fortes and pianos.

Today was nice. I stayed after school to play some quartets with a few friends. We ended up looking at Brahms. We went through a few movements from each of his three quartets that my violist friend had brought. It was a lot of fun. Second violin was okay. I'm not used to playing second violin, so it was some nice practice, plus I didn't have to worry about hitting any high notes.

I need to get together with my regular quartet and work on Haydn and Mozart. We haven't met in a few weeks... almost a month.

Oh well, I need to go.
