I can pick out mistakes in Scriabin 5 and I'm nowhere near the level of Curtis faculty.

I can pick out mistakes in the Scriabin 5th Sonata and I'm nowhere near the level of Kreisler.

Today I discussed with my piano teacher the repertoire for my Curtis Institute of Music Audition. Here is what we decided.:)

1. J.S. Bach WTC D Major Prelude and Fugue
2. Beethoven Sonata Op. 27 No. 1
3. Slow Chopin: Mazurka in C sharp minor Fast Chopin: Etude in C sharp minor
4. Copland Piano Variations
