Since no one else has taken it as of yet, may I have the 9/1 please? It appears to be easier than the remaining 62/1.
Thanks
Woody

I've been hemming and hawing over this. Since there is only one left, I guess I'd better take it before it's gone! Sign me up for 62/1 please!

I am here but haven't touched that 32/2 yet. Still working on the Mazurka for next month, Liszt Etude in Pianist Corner for July, Chopin for September. Then I can work on 32/2. Am I a slacker or what? \:D

Haven't touched 15-1 yet due to the Rachmaninoff in my sig line. I'm going to pick 15-1 up this spring. \:\)

I have come to realize that 15/2 is not necessarily the most appropriate choice for one's first Chopin Nocturne. I have been making progress, and my teacher thinks it will be ready in time.

I'm present and accounted for. I haven't really begun work yet on 55/2, but I sort-of learned the first two pages in 2000 and think there's still plenty of time to re-learn and finish it.

That's OK, I sort of thought that, but you had me confused! \:o

Better get busy...I know I should, but other responsibilities beckon for the present.

I am working on reducing the number of wrong notes in 48/1 so that they are outnumbered by the right notes. \:D I think I'll be there by October.

In the category of "what was I thinking?" I hereby relinquish 9/3.

I hope there is time for somebody else who wants it to work it up for the recital.

So far so good...just a couple measures in the middle of 15/3 to learn, then bring it all up to tempo and polish.

I'm still struggling to record the mazurka 41/2 up to my standards. I have now recorded it approximately 3.5 million times! So the idea of getting to the point of recording 48/2, even though I've learned it to some extent in the past, seems like a very tall mountain to climb. However, I am not planning to give up.

Hi Jim!

Sign up with this piece in the Concert Etude Recital thread in the Pianist Corner.

It's going to be sometime this summer, though, not October like this Nocturnes event. I don't believe the date has been determined yet.
