You have quite the repertoire and a very nice sound. I hope I can some day carve out my place in the recitals, and do maybe half as nicely as you do!
Thanks. I think it's very nice to play these kind of pieces, anyway, but to be frank, the type of places I'm playing at, I have no fear of someone saying, "Oh, but it wasn't that difficult, was it".... As far as I can see, so long as it's played well enough, people like it! Isn't that the most important thing anyway?
Of course, I can play more difficult pieces and I do perform those as well, but the added bonus of performing pieces of this level, is that because they are easy for me, I can really focus on my performance skills, like getting used to being out there and playing as musically as I can. There's more to refining an instrument than the practice room!!
Good luck with your own recital plans.
