Chopin Scherzi – Complete
Beethoven Sonata in E Major, Op. 14, No. 1 – Complete
The Weekly Acorn is halting production after the September 25th performance.
September 2020 is the final month of Weekly Acorn concerts, at least for now. I originally intended to get through Covid-19 confinement by challenging myself to offer weekly bite-sized performances, since my in-person Curious Squirrel recitals were no longer possible. As you can imagine, learning or relearning difficult pieces takes time. So does recording, editing, and uploading them!
The main reason I’m halting these weekly performances is to re-focus on teaching, now that I have more students than I had this past spring. However, I won’t stop learning new repertoire and relearning old pieces.
Even though the Weekly Acorn is about to go on a long or permanent break, I still intend to keep producing content for Music Monday, my tiny bites project. It offers very short recordings along with a potpourri of other musical tidbits. Recently, I’ve written a blog post about a music icon, shared student performances, and offered both solo and collaborative recordings on both piano and organ.
I hope you’ve enjoyed these Weekly Acorn performances! If you’ve enjoyed them, please let me know. Who knows, maybe I’ll be back here in the same format, or a different one, in 2021?
