Performance of the Week

     Hi, everyone! The year is underway, and I was so impressed with all of you this week! Lots of practicing went on this summer!

     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.

     Listening to this performance will be part of your homework this week, and I can't wait to hear your reflections on what you heard. Have a wonderful week!
