My main repertoire is Mozart and Chopin, especially with a focus on Chopin's works.
The rest of the repertoire is selective; however, I am working on numerous pieces among them: Beethoven's sonatas, variations, and concertos until the Middle Period; Brahms' piano sonatas and small pieces; Liszt's entire Second Year: Italy from "Années de pèlerinage."
Through the training experience on a variety of chamber music and vocal accompaniment, my repertoire also includes most of Brahms' violin, viola, and cello sonatas; from trios to quintets; and various concertos.
Some vocal accompaniments I am studying include Italian vocal music by Bellini, Rossini, Donizetti, Respighi, etc. and Japanese songs by Nakada Yoshinao as well as Schumann's song cycles.
