Been working on Bach WTC Book 1 prelude and fugue in C-minor. Got it memorized and pretty well under my fingers and am working on smoothing out the rough edges, figuring out an interesting interpretation and on speeding up the presto part of the prelude.

Just started Schubert Op 90 #3- the G-flat impromptu after seeing it posted on this forum in several places. Doesn't look to be as difficult as #2, which I used to play sorta' badly.

I LOVE these pieces, I should go back and revisit them!! The op. 42 etude and the prelude always give me the sensation of flight...

Yeah, they are amazing pieces for sure! Though I am considering switching out Op. 2 No. 1. It is in the same key as the Op. 42, and there is this lovely Etudes, Op. 8 No. 8 in A flat.

Currently I am learning/practicing Beethoven's Sonata No. 5 in C minor, Op. 10 No. 1.

I usually do five minutes of scales and Mozart's Andante in C major, K. 1a for warmup.

In my daily upkeep, I practice (so as to not "lose it"):
Chopin - Nocturne No. 13 in C minor, Op. 48 No. 1
Mozart - Fantasy No. 4 in C minor, K. 475
Beethoven - Sonata No. 19 in G minor, Op. 49 No. 1
Liszt - Consolation No. 3 in D-flat major, S. 172

And after finally coming to terms with the fact that I'm not capable of playing Beethoven's Sonata No. 23 in F minor, Op. 57 ("Appassionata"), I now only play certain parts of it - my favourite parts and the parts I can play.

This is, more or less, my daily routine.

Spent 30 minutes practicing earlier and got this little excerpt so far:

https://www.box.com/s/b7b3hc55vjdw4cub0hxj

Alkan Symphony for solo piano 3rd movement. This is physically demanding. For some reason, in the section from 0:09 to 0:14 (and in the repeat), it doesn't sound like I'm playing the correct inversions of the b flat minor chords, but trust me, I am. Must be because I used my laptop's built-in microphone, haha... More to come soon!! Thank goodness for summer laugh

A live gig with the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra recently put the fear of God in me so as partial preparation I worked a bit on some old pieces that I used to be able to play:

Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata
Chopin Scherzo in Bb minor
Assorted Bach inventions and preludes
Also read through some new preludes and fugues and some Chopin to improve my sight reading.

Her English teacher says, "Tutoring and nitpicking will commence after your recital. Until then, do not darken my door. Practice piano, not ESL."

He would say I suck at proofreading. Plus, he'd probably be forgiving considering the fact that English is not my first language. And then he'd say, "Still, you managed to obtain an English minor after only speaking the language for 5 years".

And then he'd shut up.

(also, spending 8 hours in the practice room on a Sunday does something quite special to your brain)
