    Eh, my repertoire situation is a bit tricky, but I'll see if I can post the best I can:

    -Ravel Piano Concerto in G: already learned and practicing for competition 24th

    -Ravel Rapsodie Espagnole (primo): in progress of learning the Feria for radio show October 27th (will do other three movements afterward)

    -Schubert Fantasia in F Minor (secondo): in progress of learning

    -Chopin Ballade 2 in F Major Op. 38: already learned. After concerto competition, will start practicing again for radio show October 27th

    -Brahms Ballades Op. 10: will start learning after concerto competition

    -Berg Piano Sonata: will start learning after concerto competition

    -Beethoven Sonata in C Major Op. 53 "Waldstein": Already know the third movement, but will start learning the other two and practicing the third again either after concerto competition, or wait until after radio show.

    -Bach: Any of the preludes and fugues: Probably learn after radio show

    -Ravel La Valse (solo piano): Will start learning on Christmas break

    -Alkan Symphony for Solo Piano 1st movement (Op. 39 No. 4): Hopefully during second semester? If not, during the summer. Also, sometime afterward, I want to do the other three movements (Op. 39 Nos. 5, 6, and 7).

    Chopin: Etude op. 25 no 2
    Liszt: Hungarian rhapsody no 6
    Sonetto 123 del Petrarca
    Bach: Prelude and fugue A flat major BWV 862


    And if I'll have enough time I'll learn Chopin's etude op 10 no 4 and another Bach's prelude and fugue.

    I might get to play the Brahms clarinet sonata 1 in f minor, which would be awesome.

    I hope you do, it's beautiful!

    I'm working on the Copland Clarinet Concerto. When I first brought it up, my teacher thought it was "too hard" for me, but he doesn't anymore!

    I'm now accompanying a cellist in the last movement of Brahms' e minor cello sonata. Wonderful fugue; it's even inspired me to compose my own.

    The fugue is brilliant, indeed; and not only because the opening theme is based on the 13th contrapunctus of Bach's Art of Fugue.

    Re-learning some old gems from decades gone by that have gathered dust. Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata, Chopin's Bb Minor Scherzo, the Minute Waltz. Mostly still memorized, but my technique on them is quite frightful. It's back to 1/2 speed until I can get them back under my fingers properly.
    art is never finished, it is abandoned...
