[Yuko's Leg Rehabilitation Diary - 5]
Since 2013 I've suffered from a strained leg muscle after walking/training and my 'rehabilitation' wasn't so effective.
In the summer 2013, I performed at Piotrowice Nyskie. It was July, it was the start of a new music festival in Poland:
Schumann Piano Quintet in E-flat major Op.44 and
Chopin Piano Concerto in E minor Op.11 chamber version
with Warsaw Philharmonic String Quartet,
solo recital and Beethoven Choral Fantasy in C minor Op.80 with TALIS CANTUS Otmuchów.
Schumann Piano Quintet rehearsing:
Beethoven Choral Fantasy rehearsing:
And then in August, I played two Chopin Piano Concertos: in F minor Op.21 and E minor Op.11 solo version (Chopin's original) - for prof.Jan Ekier's 100th Birthday Special Concert, at International Music Festival 'Chopin and his Europe':
Chopin Piano Concerto in F minor rehearsing:
In September I had a Chopin recital at Żelazowa Wola, Chopin's birthplace. Scherzo in B-flat minor, Mazurkas, Waltzes and so on.
When I got up in the morning, I thought everything was alright. But after getting off the subway/metro, when I was walking down Nowy Świat Street towards Chopin Museum, where the driver from the organiser (Narodowy Instytut Fryderyka Chopina) waited for me, I felt something was wrong with my legs.
