Today I'm starting a blog series featuring great recital performances. These performances show hard-working students playing polished pieces reflecting great teaching and lots of practice at home. I hope to include pieces that many of you are studying so that you can be inspired and hear well-played examples.
This week's performance of Beethoven's Sonatina in G Major and Schumann's The Wild Horseman comes from an unnamed young woman and an unnamed teacher of high caliber. This student has put a lot of time into these pieces, and they demonstrate good teaching and technique. The acoustics in the room make some of the articulation difficult to hear, but the performance is great.
