A day in the life - March 9, 2015

Periodically I like to highlight the variety of music I interact with as a full-time college professor...it really is a treat to experience all kinds of repertoire every day as a teacher, soloist and accompanist.

So, here's yesterday's list, more or less chronologically:

"Have You Seen but a White Lily Grow" [Anonymous], "I Attempt from Love's Sickness to Fly" in two different keys [Purcell], "Vergebliches Standchen" [Brahms], "Batti, batti" from Don Giovanni [Mozart], "Orpheus with his Lute" [Vaughan Williams], "Du Ring an meinem Finger" [R. Schumann], "Sonnet" [Bizet], "If Music be the Food of Love" [Purcell], " Beethoven Piano Sonata in F, Op. 10, no. 2, "Prelude" [Ola Gjeilo], "hope, faith, life, love" [Eric Whitacre], "Look at the World" [Rutter], "I Can Tell the World" [Moses Hogan], "Horizons" [Peter Louis van Dijk], "Sunshine in my Soul" [John Sweney], "Let the River Run" [Carly Simon], "Oklahoma" from Oklahoma [Rodgers], Sonatina in A minor [Benda], "The Storm" [Gurlitt], "Offrande" [Hahn], "Gott ist mein Hirte" [Dvorak], "Sea Fever" [Mark Andrews], "The Vagabond" [Vaughan Williams], "Non piu andrai" from Le nozze di Figaro [Mozart], "The Wild Horseman" [R. Schumann].

This morning I have Brahms' Clarinet Sonata in E-flat, Op. 120, no. 2, Kapustin's two-piano and percussion "concerto," op. 104, Chopin's B-minor sonata, Beethoven's Piano Concerto no. 4 in G and Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier on my music desk.

Never a dull moment!!
