Been a while. Still lots of piano playing in the long hiatus of posting here, but just got a lot busier. Smarter thing to do is to simply keep my blogs more to the point.
So, a review of what's happened since a long time ago!
- Learned Beethoven's Emperor concerto
Remark: the piece isn't that hard to learn per se, but there are a few difficult technical passages that require in-depth practicing. Again though, didn't bother to memorize.
- A bunch of chamber music parties.
Remark: that's right! Had lots of string players over to play chamber music. Piano trios, quartets, quintets, plus string only chamber music when I need a break. Invited some pianists over too. Good times.
- Decided to take those music diploma exams one day.
Remark: A nice goal to set. After vacillating, my decision is to learn Beethoven's Appassionata and Schubert's Wanderer Fantasy. Mostly because they're easier to memorize.
- Le Tic Toc Choc.
Remark: Fell in love with it, learned it. Fun piece.
Remark: The Entertainer and The Maple Leaf Rag. Reasonably easy for memorize.
- Mario Music
Remark: We spot a trend! Lots of casual music.
Well, I'll go back to posting whenever I have interesting things to say. Most likely won't be as detailed as before but hopefully more to-the-point.
