I have just come back home from a long holiday, and during that time I have been thinking with where the piano will take me this year. I'm off to university this September to study Music BMus, and part of the entry conditions is that I must pass ABRSM Grade 8 Theory.. A lot of head-burying upon a pile of books!

I also wish to have completed the 24 Chopin preludes by the end of this year, which at the moment I find to be quite fun, especially the first one in C major. I'm tackling all the ones I think are 'easier' out of the bunch, then I shall take a stab at the others soon enough.

How about everyone? What are you aspiring for this year?

Hope everyone at PW has a great progressive 2010.

I plan to whip the Goldberg Variations into some sort of reasonable shape, and play a few excerpts in the annual talent contest at the college where I teach math. (Or, following Rudolf Serkin, I might play something else first and then perform the Goldbergs in their entirety as an encore!)

- Get away with having an empty hall for my school recital (because 1. some of it will be complete crap, 2. if no one is there I will be able to use the decent parts of the recording for auditions and stuff)

- start the Liszt sonata in April (yay!!!!)

- play the Rach or Prok cello sonatas, or both!

For 2010 a modest goal is to add about 15 minutes of memorized, performable rep. to my arsenal.

Pick a Chopin Mazurka to play: one of the less common ones, one that appeals to me.

Drag out and dust off some other cobwebbed pieces and get them up to snuff.

Goal is to be able to play a full hour program consisting of various composers.

I would like, eventually, to have over a full hour of Chopin alone, including two Ballades. 2010 is not a realistic timeframe for that.

For 2010, I'd like to firm up my musical identity as an amateur pianist: Predominantly specializing in Chopin but with a hodgepodge of other pieces, generally charming.
