The inspiration, and title, of this mix both lie in an obscenely depressing statistic that was presented to me, along with my fellow students, by my heroic piano teacher: Of all the hundreds and hundreds of geniuses who apply to the Juilliard School of Piano each year, guess how many get in? That's right, twelve. As in two after ten. And one less than thirteen. I have constructed a mix in a feeble attempt to express my dashed hopes and newfound lack of self-confidence. The first track, the first movement of the Appassionata Sonata, is appropriate not only because of its incredible anger, but also because I am currently learning to play it. Heh--"play" it.
