What I have been listening to: I highly recommend this album of music. The style, the performers, everything but the clapping is perfect. I am not a fan of clapping in recordings, but this was a live performance, so I guess that's what we get.
What I have been learning for fun: This lovely Passacaglia. I am working on it with a cellist friend, and it is a very challenging piece. It is amazingly fun to play, however.
What I have been learning to learn. . . not so much for fun: Three octave scales and arpeggios, an etude, shifting from 1st position to 8th, 2nd to 9th, and so on. Also, double stops. Those tricky beasts. :)
