I'm stressed out. I think I'll take the week off. I haven't taken a week off in almost a year.

Book One of Microcosmos. Bela Bartok.

I have shelved Scriabin's Fifth Sonata :oops: I would rather save it for an all Scriabin concert in a year or so, than rush it. It's eally The shorter pieces work better between the cello sonatas. Not sure how to fit Medtner in either but I might put him in in place of some Rach Preludes, we'll see. The program is now..

Rubinstein-Cello Sonata in D major op.18

Rachmaninov- Prelude in c# minor Op.3#2
Rachmaninov- Prelude in g minor Op.23 #5

I may discard the Op.32 Rach Preludes and end the first half with the g minor prelude; also going to look at his Moment Musicaux Op.16.

Damn. That's a lot of difficult pieces. But I doubt that you are a newbie to the piano, so you'll be able to perfect those as if I were to perfect easy-one-page pieces. :oops: :roll:

woohoo well, ive just finished my pieces and am moving on...yay!! i love starting new pieces :D
well, i'm playing (0r going to):

Chopin's sonata bminor last movement (primarily last movement) or his variations not sure which one yet.

Mendellsohn's songs without words, opus 56 no. 3 (i think its 56. might be 55?? i dnt think so but). i like this piece. nice and easier i guess. i just finished scriabins pathetique d# minor etude so its pretty different. lighter and more mozart-like. no heavy give-it-all-you-got haha :D

appassionata- beethoven

prokofiev sarcasms- maybe havent decided either...no. 1?

liszt's un sospiro!! yessss! sooo beautiful!

a debussy piece. maybe that reflections in the water one. i love impresssionistic music. dont know if i'm sick of it at the present because i've just done ravel's jeux d'eau. i guess that's why i said no to Liszt's villa d'este. too much water :D

probably something else. any suggestions?? i'm not really fussy (tho not bartok), highish technical ability required is good :D

Those cello sonatas are taking up a lot of practice time even though I don't have to memorize them.
Consequently have had to cut down on solos a bit; now we've got....


Rubinstein-Cello Sonata in D major op.18

Rachmaninov- Prelude in c# minor Op.3#2
Rachmaninov- Prelude in g minor Op.23 #5
Rachmaninov-Prelude in Eb major Op.23 #6 OR Moment Musical in Db Op.16 #5
Rachmaninov-Serenade Op.3 #5
*************************************

Scriabin- Etude in d# minor Op.8 #12 (and maybe a contrasting one)
Scriabin- Preludes from Op.11 #3, #5, LH Prelude Op.9 #1 and some others TBA
Scriabin Two Poems op.32

Shostakovich- Cello Sonata op.40


The Scriabin group is the easiest of all of this for me, I've always liked 1 to 2 page music that lasts 1 to 2 minutes. This group will be probably be changing right up to the week before the recital. Rach is more challenging for me, so I've truncated that group a bit. I may play Rubinstein's "Kamanoi Ostrow" after the cello sonata, after all he was one of the most influential pianists of all time, his piano music should be represented, although it is rather fluffy.

I would like your feedback on the following; should I play the Eb Prelude or the Db Moment Musical? Can't make up my mind....
:roll:

oh man..all you guys sound so accomplished. i have a crippeling performance anxiety, so sadly, unless i somehow get over it, i dont think ill ever be much of a performance artist. but i just love to play, so as for what ive been working on the past few months...um...lets see..finishing up claire de lune. ive played copelands cat and mouse...so much fun, but sadly i wouldnt say that i mastered it. i also found rachmaninov's prelude in c# minor so much fun to play. i got pretty good at gershwins second prelude, for some reason the first, i never got perfect, and i havnt had time to try the third yet. ive tried to get through beethovens sonate pathetique, got about half way through. and right now, i just started katchaturian's toccata. and i think im in love. any advice for a novice musician?

Yeah Chopin's first impromptu is very tricky! I don't even know how I'm able to play it. When I heard it for the first time I got it stuck in my head so badly I just decided to play it. One tip: you do not want to bring out the left hand too much. It sounds all bleh if you do. Just let the right hand melody flow right out of your fingers.

After you start to master it your fingers will just fall into place on the right keys and you won't even have to think about hitting the right notes! :D

Four clefts, whoa.... Obviously you were thinking of something entirely different when looking at the prelude. A dirty mind is a joy forever :lol:

Now that I am happy to hear ! Don't you just love that suite (called Andalucia, after that region of Spain), and Lecuona's piano music in general ?
Any chance of a recording when you are done ?

Idylle in b minor Op.7 #1 Nikolai Medtner (1882-1951)

I expect I'll be posting most of this music (excepting Shostakovich, copyright restricted) in the Audition Room over the next two months. This turned out to be a rather cool program/selection of pieces imo. I play this program on January 28th and February 21st.

Good to see you are giving Medtner his credit due Chase ! This seems to be very fitting, seeing as Rachmaninov considered him the greatest composer of his time.

Looking forward to your postings then ! Please post the Shostakovich as well - even if we can't perhaps put it up the site I think it's ok to have it in Audition Room so at least we can listen to it.

Hah, it's already a problem with my neighbors, since the piece already starts with a constant pounding of the lower octave B flat. It is very hard but i can handle it now... :D

I decided to put off CPE Bach's sonata in F until I have access to a real piano (because it sounded like crap on my dinkey keyboard--but what doesn't right :lol: :wink: :( )

So now I am starting with the first piece from Tchaikovsky's Album for the youth.

And Stephen Foster's "Tioga Waltz"

Foster had huch a tragic life. He is considered the "father of Ameican music" and wrote pieces like "O! Sussanna" (However you spell it). He was bedridden and tried to call for a maidservant when he fell out of bed and hit his head on a washbin. Couple hours later he died from his injuries at the age somewhere between 28-35 (forgot exactly).

Juufa, I’m glad you’re going to do the Stephen Foster piece. I don’t think I have ever heard that one so I’m looking forward to it. Maybe after that you can record 'My Old Kentucky Home'? I love that song and always get choked up when they sing it at the start of the Kentucky Derby. I also laugh when I remember when I was little and was on vacation with my family. We went to Kentucky and my dad kept saying how we were going to visit ‘my old Kentucky home. When we got there I asked my dad, “When did you move out of here?” He replied, “What do you mean, move?” I asked again, “How old were you when you moved from your old Kentucky home?”
I still get teased about that.
Shame about Foster's tragic death. He was one year younger than Chopin when he died.

Take a look, it's only 3 pages without any key changes (only a few times is there a F#). What is giving me the most trouble is the lack of dynamics and pedal markings. Perhaps that is left up to the player. So I am trying to play it as many ways as I can and go from there. (But when I do that I mess up in places where I never messed up :x )

Here is a link to a rather dry midi file of the waltz: http://www.pdmusic.org/foster/scf39a.mid

So according to that website Foster was only 13 when he composed the waltz. Not too shabby for a 13 year old :wink:

Wow, it looks like everyone here are playing very difficult pieces. :(
Right now I'm playing:

Chopin Ballade no.1
Chopin Etude Op. 10 no.1 and Op.25 no. 12

Beethoven Sonata Appassionata 1st mvt.

Of course I play many different pieces but these three are the only pieces I practice at the moment.

Don't do that. I hate when people say "oh my repitoire is nothing to be proud of...I am only playing Liszt's sonata in B, Chopin's Bolero, Rachmaninov prelude 3/2, and Mozarts sonata k.333....I know it's not that special"

:evil: :evil: :evil: :evil: gah!

Do not think that I am venting my wrath at you because I am not. I just felt like venting. So please do not think that I am causing menace to you or anyone else. But there are a few "thickheaded" people whom I had conversations with and they try to lower themselves but in the end they are coming off as arrogant fools.

Thank you for bearing with me :wink:

p.s. Nice repitoire. Will you record them?

I'm playing at the moment-:Chopin's first ballade, polonaise op. 53, prelude no. 16 "Hades"
And i'm just about to start Liszt's Hungarian rhapsody No. 2 (a fun sounding piece, though quite difficult :()

Puh-len-tee... :lol:

Chopin's three "Heroic" polonaises have my attention right now. Memorizing his second concerto, too. Rach's second is on the back burner but still very much alive.

Bach prelude and fugue...Beethoven Sonatas...trying my hand at Jazz, that's not going too smoothly but I'm convinced it will help my performance anxiety (Cziffra comes to mind).

Wait, Chopin's three "Heroic" polonaises? I think that the Op. 53 in A-flat Major is the only one with that title. Either way, it's still amazing to be able to play any of his polonaises (except the 1817 one in G Minor maybe)!!

Yeah there's three. Opp. 44, 53 and 61. There's a few structural differences that set them apart.

Note the long introductions in those three as compared to the others.

Learning them as a set (when you can see the striking similarities among them) is much easier than going one by one.

1) Some pieces from Tchaikovsky's Album for the Young
2) Two pieces from Scharwenka's Album for the Young
3) THE Rachmaninov prelude (but just for self-amusment...remember Rachmaninov had very big hands. I have small hands, but only hands small :lol: )
