Zo for Thursday, August 26

A small but fun audience tonight for Zo. I was foggy the whole way through – losing focus often, lots of memory glitches – but my listeners were very forgiving. Entropic was botchy beyond repair (will I ever learn the darned thing?!) but the ballade went well, which is encouraging – it’s been a long, long time since I worked up something really virtuosic for a concert … not since college, in fact. I may get the hang of these things yet.

Here’s what I played:

  • Brahms - Waltz Op 39 No 15
  • Bach - Sinfonia 5
  • Carei Thomas - Fragrance XIV: Cjalme
  • Cantrell - Entropic Waltz
  • Cantrell - Cradle Waltz
  • Brahms - Intermezzo Op 116 No 4
  • Chopin - Nocturne Op 55 No 1
  • Todd Harper - Thoughts at 4 AM
  • Cantrell - In a Perfectly Wounded Sky
  • Brahms - Intermezzo Op 117 No 1
  • Chopin - Ballade No 3

I like the program. I’ll blame the fog on the Claratin I took this morning, and not tweak the program too much for tomorrow’s concert.
