I had my recital yesterday. It went great! No memory slips, no wrong notes, and I wasn't even nervous. I completely owned the audience. It was amazing. I played the following:

Chopin Nocturne in c# minor

Brahms Intermezzo from Op.118 No.1


I'm so glad it's over now. All thats left is the piano jury and I'm off for a good month till next semester. It feels great to know that all the hard work and practice REALLY DID pay off in the end after I performed.

Just thought I'd share my joy with you people. And thanks for the support from the people in my first thread..."wish me luck".

Good job, I know how good it feels after you finish an important recital!

Now get yourself some blow and celebrate!

(Hm, maybe I am kidding..maybe..)

Very glad to hear it went well, PianoMajor! It's a great feeling when you "own the audience" haha. Keep up the good work!


Any chance of some recordings?

PianoMajor:

Was that the Chopin Nocturne Op 27 No 1 in c# minor or the posthumous c# minor?

Glad it went well for you.

Regards,
