Oh yes, that's where you hang out, I forgot. Say hi to Robert

Terez wrote:Not exactly. Many websites message boards thrive with the help of these tools, but they are not good places for discussions, nor are they good places to centralize your audition room. YouTube attracts more idiots than anything else, and you can't require people to upload video when it will likely cost a good bit in sound quality even compared to mp3.

'Oh, look! Chris has posted some Bach-whatever; I should go listen and see if I can find anything to nitpick about it.'

I've been working my way through Schubert's piano works, just finishing Opus 142 in F Minor, and wanted to solicit opinions on good pieces to practice/play this year.
Beethoven thrills me, but I've worked through most of his major piano compositions (not all of them, of course).
Schubert seems to have the right combination of thoughtfulness and strong melody, and that is what I'm looking for.
Does Mozart have anything in adagio or a somber mood for piano? The only thing I can think of is Requiem.
Thanks in advance and please keep playing in 2012. The world needs it.
