This year is definitely the most demanding when it comes to the quantity of music which I must prepare for concerts. It's going to be a true test and a real challenge. It is around 350 minutes of music: 6 Sonatas (2 Beethoven's, Mozart, Grieg, Schubert, Chopin), Piano Concerto by Bach, music by Chopin (5 Valses, 4 Nocturnes, 5 Etudes, Ballade in G minor, Scherzo in B flat minor, Fantasy-Impromptu, 8 Mazurkas), Liszt (La Campanella, Rigoletto Pharaphrase, 2nd Hungarian Rhapsody, Grieg (Peery Gynt Suite, song transcription), Rachmaninoff (Prelude G minor) and 1 hour program of music by Wang Jianzhong. Some of the pieces are completely new, some I already have in my repertoire. But to make them all ready almost at the same time is something I have never experienced before. The only way to do it is a perfect organization of time and work. I am sure that this year I will learn a lot. And playing so many masterpieces, sharing them with the audience, is the best reward for this hard work.
