Last week I tricked Ausra to record a recital with me without even her realising it. I had my evil plan and here's what happened:
After her school work was over I invited her to come to play a couple of pieces at Vilnius University St John's church where I was practicing beforehand. Not only practicing but I actually recording 4 pieces. So when Ausra came, I said why don't she record a couple of pieces by Juozas Naujalis, Lithuanian composer from the beginning of the 20th century and put my organ arrangement of his Reverie in front of her. She didn't seem to object so when she was done, I asked her to play his Trio No. 1 in C Major. Oh, while we were at it, and Trio No. 2 in F Major. So in about an hour she was able to record 3 pieces even though she didn't plan to do so. Then I, of course, said, let's put together a recital out of these pieces we recorded today and premiere next Sunday. That's how my evil plan came into being and now we're both excited to share this recital with you!
