Well, I am pleased tonight, despite a mild reaction to a pain killer. Tonight was the first run through of one of my piano pieces, and it went quite well. It sure brings a piece to life to have it performed by a living, breathing pianist. And it helps if the pianist has studied with Andre Watts and Byron Janis. It is always good for the ego to have your works performed! My Lebensgefährte was quite impressed with the difference a live musician made to the piece. I wish I were a good enough pianist to play more of my music. Well, maybe some day. I don't know exactly when or where, but I expect a local performance in the next few months.
There were some minor corrections to the score, all of them concerning expression. I learned from that!
