Piano music of Mozart, Schumann, Chopin and Brahms all featured in my recent piano recital. The concert took place on January 10, in the John Field Room, in the National Concert Hall in Dublin and it was Sold Out!!
The concert included a Mozart Sonata, Schumann’s Papillons, Chopin’s Nocturne No. 15 in E flat, Schumann’s Fantasy in C, and excerpt from Brahms Piano Sonata in F minor. A Steinway D was available for the performance.
I spoke with lots of the audience afterwards. Mum was delighted to be able to be there too, and told me all of the comments that the audience said to her. One lady commented that she had heard me play Mozart and Chopin when I was twelve, and has continued ever since to go to hear me play! I hope I have continued to improve and understand piano music.
I think the audience really enjoyed Schumann’s Papillons the best, maybe because they were still thinking of the holidays and celebrations!
