Piano Performance.

As for upcoming plans, my wife and I are spending two weeks in Italy (Amalfi - Naples - Rome - Florence - Bologna - Venice) starting on the 19th. After that, it's practice, practice, practice for some concerts and competitions next year. I'm also looking for a university job, but I'd be comfortable keeping my plate as it is now and just focusing on things that are already on the books.

Dr. Kinsella,
Have a wonderful vacation in Italy. I'm sure it's a much needed break.

virtuoso_18,
Why are most of your pieces romantic?

The original intention was not to be so romantically-centered, however, it turned out that most of the pieces I want to explore are romantic. I will be working on those pieces temporarily before I finish my high school final exams and start preparing a new program for my Contervasory admission auditions(which will include a piece from each era). I'm practicing very little these days as my real focus is getting a high average on the final exams in order to be admitted to Medical school, and the pieces will most likely change when I have enough free time available for serious practice.

Hurrah! thumb I offer the Doctor my most enthusiastic contrafribularities!

Better take some nose-pegs against the stench of the ~1300 tonnes of rubbish (garbage) piled up along the streets... and perhaps a shovel if you fancy helping out wink
