Hello all, Some of you might know me from Piano World. Anyhow I am a student, and my primary hobby is music, though I have little hope of being a professional. I strive for excellence, though, and I study with a fine piano teacher. Right now, as you can see in my sig, my primary projects are the Rachmaninoff Sérérade Op. 3 no. 5 and Chopin's Op. 44 Polonaise. The Polonaise is my "fun" project; I just started it to see if I could handle it at all, and much to my surprise I have made great progress with it. Very difficult, but the parts I have down are fun to play. But it's on the back burner right now because I have a timetable on the Rachmaninoff. Since this site focuses a lot on recordings, I'll just say that I don't have any right now, but I will this fall and I'll think about uploading. I'll be playing a Chopin nocturne (Op. 15-1) for an electronic recital at PW, and I'll plan to record a few other pieces at the same time. And, in case you haven't guessed it by now :lol:, I'm a Horowitz fanatic. I do enjoy other pianists, but for some intangible reason I am drawn to Horowitz more than any other. Cheers!
