Anyone recently perfect a piece, or achieve a goal? Share it here!

I finished learning Prokofiev's "Harp" Prelude in C this summer, and I was quite proud it of it.

Getting through Rachmaninoff's Prelude in G minor without a break. As in, my arms actually didnt give way half way through :D

< ;DIV>UPDATE OF DOOM: Memorized it, still incredibly messy though. Huge stretchy jumps arent fun

My guess is that you've heard it. It's really slow in the beginning, then the middle section is those fast triplets, and then it recapitulates to the beginning section but louder.

finally nailed Clair De Lune for piano exam, much happy.

Still sweating over Butterflies and Hurricanes, the instrumental part is just "shudder"

Oh, and also am still continuing to slave over Prelude in C# minor but am determined to out.
