unfortunately I have already printed the programs. Do you think it would be ok to announce a change in the program? I played the CPE bach in front of 600 people this summer in a cruise ship talent competition (and won) so I am ok with that one for sure. I am ok with the JS Bach too...
wasn't sure if it was ok musically to not do it in chronological order.
Anyways, there were 120 paying people there (!) and I felt very relaxed. I had a minor bobble in the bourree and the mozart but nothing major at all. After those very small mistakes I did not play a single wrong note and played musically. I am so happy about that. It was a blast and I am excited about doing another one!!!
