12 March, 2007 I'll have my practical music exam. That day I'll have to fill 45 minutes with music of my own choice. I have to play, sing, arrange, organise and produce. In preparation of that I just played the piano for over half an hour. This is what I played:
- Waltz in Am - Chopin (love that, absolutely love that!)
- Gymnopédie - Satie (again: wow)
From "In Southern Seas" by Walter Carroll:
And from "Sea Idylls" by the same:
- From the Cliffs (had never played that before, but it is beautiful)
- A Passing Storm
- Alone at Sunset
Before I went to conservatory I never used to know Walter Carroll's music, but I love to play it now. It's within my reach (so not very difficult) but amazing. It's so romantic and totally fitting for the titles. He's not a very famous composer, but he wrote some pretty music.
Because I don't have weekly lessons at the moment I sometimes forget how much I do love to play the piano. I just reminded myself!
