Okay, I have discovered that I need two more things:

Messiaen:
Vingt Regards sur L'Enfant Jesus

1. - Regard du Pere
4. - Par lui tout a ete fait

I thought I had Vingt Regards...but I only have excerpts, and only one of them is one that I need. :cry:

You're lucky it's just the listening exam and not the performance one. :P

The Vingt Regards selection you need is on YT, played (wonderfully) by Roger Muraro.

Come on, none of the above is awful music (Campanella aside :roll: ), it's just you asking too much from yourself. You got a stack overflow. Ludus Tonalis or Messiaen, you can't grasp or appreciate them overnight. Cheer up. What does the listening exam consist of?

On the bright side...

Es schneit!

I've never seen snow before. :lol:

Now I'm off to take my German exam. :cry:

We have a couple inches of snow on the ground here. It's supposed to get warm tomorrow and rain, but then turn cold on Monday and snow again. Great... :x

Is the semester over for you now, Terez?

:x I'm through with being tortured!

But I did enjoy, at least, the style with which the pianist you recommended for Vingt Regards played. That piano was awesome, too - it sounded like a real freight train for a while in one piece. Impressive!
