Just thought of another set of Granados set you may want to try. It is the Escenas Poeticas. They are only three pieces but also not so difficult.
Yes, I have that set. I will look at them again.
[Where do I begin?
Most of Chopin's nocturnes, his mazurkas, all ballades, most preludes. Granados, Beethoven sonatas (Tempest), Grieg - too many to say, Mozart - too many to pick out, and lately, Samuel Barber - his nocturne, the Excursions set (really great!). Sorry I can't be very specific, but I've got a million things going on right now and can't think clearly.[/quote]
It sounds like quite a repetoire. Do you play professionally? Are you also a piano teacher? I would love to hear any online MP3s you have if you can direct me to them.
As for me, piano was always an avocation. When I studied at the Mozarteum in Austria, I saw how hard the competition was and I do not have a competitive spirit. I just wanted to play because I loved the music and process of playing the piano. (I studied the Leschititsky technique) Thus, I became a teacher instead, taking the Orff Shulwerk program and getting a teaching diploma. Actually, I mostly now teach ESL (English as a Second Language) to university students and their spouses. I love meeting people from all over the world.
All my best,
