I've been talking a bit with Jannum about repertoire. Mostly, it consisted of me woefully telling him that there's not enough Ballads in the world.
Long story short, he's going to write one for me.
I cannot begin to tell you how excited I am about this.
The estimate is that it will be written over summer, so hopefully I'll be able to perform it at the start of Fall. I'm considering scheduling an all-Ballads concert. It would need a different title, of course, because some people might expect eighties power Ballads.
Which would actually be rather hilarious, come to think of it.
I'm going to look for a solo piano version of Queen's "We are the Champions" now.
