Go for gold, Hector!

I'm freaking out a bit about Sunday's recital. I can get through Requiebros at eighth note = 100 with no mistakes, from memory. But I know I'm going to get carried away and I tend to do that mostly at the end where it gets kind of hard. Also in the other hard bits. It's like this with all my new pieces. I really stress out beforehand. Oh well. Maybe I can score a beta-blocker from one of the other performers! yippie

Thanks! I'm also freaking out about tomorrow, and it's not even a recital, just an amateur pianist group, only I haven't been there before, but I truly, truly do not enjoy public performance. I never liked it, but on my last piano camp, for some reason, my stage fright went through the roof and it's been an issue ever since then. It didn't help that later that year, my teacher signed me up to play at her college recital, a Mozart duet and a solo piece (memorized). It was postponed, so I forgot all about it, only to find out it was back on with just two weeks notice to prepare. The duet went well, but my solo piece fell apart halfway through, I had a total blank out and had no idea how to finish it. I'm not traumatized by it, nor am I upset at anybody or even at myself, but it's the first time I'll play for anybody since then. I see this as one more challenge to overcome. Never tried the beta blockers, will give them some thought but I'm concerned about interactions with other medications I'm on. In any case, this piece I'm planning for tomorrow is very familiar to me, and just in case I may play something easier instead. I'm also trying to do more video recordings, reviewing easy repertoire, just so I can get used to perform. So, Los Requiebros is on the back burner for now, I just play random, difficult fragments, hopefully this will marinade so I can tackle it later on.
I've seen you play in your videos at the Washington competition, you are very talented and I'm confident you'll do just fine. Hope you are feeling better, and best of luck for you tomorrow!
