The big one is Bach Cello Suite No. 2 (in viola transcription), the entire suite. Have been working on it for 10 months now, because practice time has been limited for the entire time and much of it has been spent on orchestra rep for both in-person and virtual orchestras.

I'm getting into final exam week for the first semester of my graduate program, and after that I'm planning to add a solo piece for the rest of December. I'm debating between continuing with the Clarke viola sonata, or working on the Brahms E-flat major sonata.

I'm also working on a couple things for virtual ensembles: the first movement of the Vitezslav Novak serenade for small orchestra for a virtual orchestra project, and the first movement of Mozart's "Kegelstatt" trio to try to record as a virtual trio with out-of-town friends.

@Ilona -

Well, I hope you feel like "Superwoman" after learning THAT piece!

So sorry to hear about your Cello, especially since it's so new. 

Will it cost much to get fixed? 

When the humidity starts getting too low, we have to put a big pot of water on the stove.  I'll probably have to do that soon. 

I'm waiting to see when my new Viola will be finished - I'm very excited!

Hope you and your Daughter have a wonderful Christmas!
