    I've just started Albeniz' El Albaicín from Iberia, and I'm polishing off the last piece from Granados' Goyescas. I am also relearning some pieces (Rach's op.32 #1 and 2, Debussy's Reflet dans l'eau) and I did start Balakirev's Islamey but I can only play the first 3 pages and I have kind of given up :lol:

    Hehe, I might continue it as a little side project, as it's very fun to play, but it's those damn left hand thirds and those large arpeggios - I find them very difficult to play at tempo.

    Little side project ! No wonder it does not work out. I think you need to devote your life to pieces like this. It's a lofty ideal though....

    Yeah, a side project alongside Gaspard de la Nuit, the Liszt Sonata.... 8)

    My idea of a side project is just something to work on without any intention of performing it at the moment (well, unless they want to hear an incomplete one!)

    Liszt- Consolation in Db
    Prokofiev- Diabolical Suggestion

    I've almost got the Liszt piece done. I can't wait for the Prokofiev, I absolutely love the piece! (Although I just started it yesterday so it'll be some time before I'm done.)

    Oh but you will do all three Gershwin at some point won't you? The second is gorgeous and the virtuosity of the third is so exciting!

    I'm preparing multiple things right now, my two projects for this next year is one recital:

    Bach- Prelude and Fugue in D (WTC II)
    Haydn Sonata in C Hob: XVI:50
    Liszt-Hungarian Rhapsody No.6
    Debussy-Sunken Cathedral and General Lavine--Eccentic
    Bartok- Allegro Barbaro
    Morel- Etude de Sonorite No.2

    then I am also learning for a separate recital the Beethoven Concerto in c minor (no. 3) Op. 37.

    Yes, I have learned the 2nd prelude and it is indeed gorgeous. I always feel so 'mellow' after playing it. All the worries and hassles of the day just sort of drift away. The third one has always been hard for me. Maybe one day I'll give it another go.

    I'll indicate my progress in percent. 100% means the piece is as good as I can get it. 98% means It's ready for performance. 50% indicates the point of memorization, I can put the sheet music away. 33% means I can slowly play through the whole piece while reading it.

    I'm concentrating my efforts on:

    Chopin: 12 etudes, opus 10 (I have these pieces fairly well mastered)(For 2007 competition) 95%

    Chopin: 4 Etudes, opus 25, Nrs. 1, 10, 11, and 12 (For 2007 competition) 45%

    Chopin: E minor Concerto (For 2007 competition) 60%

    Bach: Prelude and Fugue in F# minor (For 2007 competition) 50%

    Busoni piano transcription of Bach Organ Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C major, BWV 56 (For 2007 competition) 33%

    Scriabin: Etude C# minor (For 2007 competition)50%

    Beethoven: Piano Sonatas opus 27 & 28 (I learned these in my adolescence) (For 2007 competition) 90%

    Chopin: 24 Preludes, opus 28 90%

    Chopin: 2 Scherzos, Nr.1 & Nr.2 85%

    Mozart: Piano sonata in C Major K330 98%

    I'll work this repertoire through the end of 2006, then, as a sort of break from the monotony, I'll learn a potpourri of easier pieces for informal spring recitals, only to return to the first list in prep. for the 2007 competition.

    It is about time for me to find a piece for a small informal recital in december.

    At this moment:

    Mussogorsky- Pictures at an Exhibition (??I dont even know if I have that right) "Old Castle" I think it is number 4 or 5

    Serge Bortkiewicz- Das Dunkele Zimmer (will be ready for halloween..BOOO! 8) )

    Schumann- Etudes after Paganini Caprices op.3 number 5

    (this reminds me, how fast is allegro assai using Beats per minute? 100? 144?)
