I think this is good for the show's rating. This, however, makes me look old.

Hi,

Thank you very much for all your suggestions. Since the list is rich, it will take me some time to digest.

Although I have not had time yet to think through all suggestions (just finished my homework), I immediately like the idea of learning a Schubert/Liszt transcription. In general, I am very fond of Schubert's music. I am also familiar with and like some of his lieders, such as Auf dem Wasser zu singen, Gretchen am Spinnrage, and Erlkonig. I just quickly checked Youtube and found that these three lieder transcriptions are rarely played by pre-college pianists, which is good for someone like me who is rather old relative to the show's usual featured soloists.

The funny thing is that the festival where I will be studying with Prof. Arie Vardi this coming summer asked me which chamber music piece I would prefer to learn and perform. My answer was: Schubert Piano Trio No. 1. smile I hope they will assign this piece to me this summer.

A lot of Grainger would work, actually! smile
