    Hi, I am new!

    Hello, all.
    Greetings from San Diego, California.

    I had been trained as a classical pianist for 16 years since age 4 but have been away for approximately 35 years thereafter.
    I have set a goal today (Christmas 2017): I am going to retrain and perform my first piano concerto in 2019/2020.
    I need to select one, of course, which decision shall come.

    I am a little embarrassed to be so bluntly honest in this message...
    but here you go.

    Thanks for reading.

    Kristina

    Welcome to Magle International Music Forums.

    I think that you will find taking up the keyboard again is akin to riding a bicycle ... one never forgets the basics, I think.

    There is a plethora of free, public domain, piano scores on IMSLP [dot] ORG ripe for the taking.

    That is certainly what my husband found, returning to the piano in retirement.
