    I got the Hammerklavier today!

    Probably will just stick to one movement, not the third, most probably the Adagio sostenuto. Let's see, I already have Prok's 6th Sonata, Bach's intricate P&F 20 (WTC I that is), Schumann's Klavierkonzert, possibly his fantasy in c as well, maybe Gubaidulina's piano sonata if i'm up for the fun...

    Default What are you working on right now.

    My biceps, have to make them as hard as the triceps.

    Otherwise I'm trying to play the piano part of Delius' Violin Sonata No.1. Since I've never been taking piano classes, I'm having a rough time now.

    Haven't decided on what this year's repertoire will be besides Listz's ninth Hungarian Rhapsody. I'll probably stick with my Bach (WTC II No. 23 in B Major), maybe learn another Debussy, no idea about what Classical piece yet.
    Oh, and I received an invitation from one of the university professors today to play the Trout Quintet in their German ensemble, I'm excited!

    I'm looking at Scriabin Op. 9 Prelude and Nocturne for left hand. Gorgeous pieces, both of them.

    Right now, the only thing I'm officially working on is Bach's WTC Book 2, Prelude and Fugue no. 2 in C Minor. It's fairly tough (I haven't tackled anything Baroque in a while), but it's very rewarding, because I'm achieving better tempo and rhythm as I practice.

    I'm still trying to find something else to work on. I was thinking something like Prokofiev or Shostakovich, but I'm not entirely sure exactly what to do. I might try to tackle Suggestion Diabolique, because a few months ago I got about half-way through and gave up, but looking at it now after such a long time, it's a bit intimidating.

    Mozart Piano Sonata No. 7 (I think, I obviously haven't paid attention to the number :P)
    Beethoven Piano Sonata No. 5
    A Rachmaninoff Prelude (not the C# Minor or the one in G)
    Various Lyric Pieces by Grieg

    And I always like to try my hand at various concertos when the mood takes me; usually I look at Grieg, Brahms 1, Dvorak, Tchaikovsky 1, and Rachmaninoff 2
