I am familiar with a wide range of works nonselectively, from classical to modern and contemporary. Recently, in particular, I have been drawn to pieces written by Beethoven, Liszt, and Rachmaninov. Among them, I have been most actively working on Rachmaninov, performing his 24 Preludes and so on.
As for chamber music, I have been studying from vocal to instrumental pieces in various ensemble styles.
