too much cheesecake too soon

I'm already experiencing a winter rut, but I'm determined to enjoy the city over the holiday and break. I'm getting ready for my Chicago broadcast recital next month, which will feature some pieces I haven't played for a large public before: Carter's 90+ (which I love more every time I come to it) and some of the Kurtag Jatekok (including the amazing "Girl With The Flaxen Hair--Enraged"). Schumann's op. 20 Humoreske is an old love, but the last time I played it was many years ago. Many thanks to WFMT for making this possible!

(...the title of this post comes from an old, great Roxy Music song, "Editions of You." Bryan Ferry's lyrics are very memorable.)
