I've been scrambling the past few days trying to improve my performances on some pieces I have to play for a recital in two weeks. I guess my piano teacher wasn't too happy with me when I made the exact same mistake two weeks in a row because I didn't use a metronome (whoops :D). Anyway, I think I've practiced enough now so that just maybe I won't get yelled out =). Now, if only my duet partner would call me. I don't have her number and she has yet to call me. We haven't practiced at all! At least my teacher can't yell at me for that!

As I'm sure you're dying to know, I'm playing Chopin's "Waltz in B minor," Tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy," and Brahm's "Hungarian Dance no. 5," which are all great pieces in my opinion. I've been watching performances of the Hungarian Dance online and I came across this one in particular that I just wanted to show to everybody below. I just liked the feel of the entire video (you'll see what I'm talking about). So, anyone care to discuss what their favorite music pieces are or describe funny recital mishaps? Just leave some comments!
