Wel i'm sitting here at Applebee's somewhere in the middle of nowhere in Pennsylvania on my way home from Cincinnati where I just had my audition for piano performance. Overall I'd say it went fairly well. I played prelude and fuge xx wtc book II by Bach, Tempest Sonata by Beethoven, and etude op. 10 no. 9 by Chopin. The prelude was great along with the Beethoven. The fuge was merely okay, and the Chopin I didn't play to my usual standard. I think I showed my talent and musicality, which was my goal. One thing that surprised me was that some of the other applicant's prorams were extremely easy; some were playing Haydn and Mozart. That seems akin to bringing a knife to a gunfight, bu I suppose it's how well you play that counts. Anyway, now I have to wait until April to find out if i got in. The wait is going to be brutal!
