I've just started Albeniz' El Albaicín from Iberia, and I'm polishing off the last piece from Granados' Goyescas. I am also relearning some pieces (Rach's op.32 #1 and 2, Debussy's Reflet dans l'eau) and I did start Balakirev's Islamey but I can only play the first 3 pages and I have kind of given up :lol:

Bach WTC1 P+F b flat minor
Chopin Ballade No. 1

That's already enough for little poor Olaf (concerning Piano, because Organ and Guitar needs time too...)!

Hehe, I might continue it as a little side project, as it's very fun to play, but it's those damn left hand thirds and those large arpeggios - I find them very difficult to play at tempo.

Little side project ! No wonder it does not work out. I think you need to devote your life to pieces like this. It's a lofty ideal though....

Yeah, a side project alongside Gaspard de la Nuit, the Liszt Sonata.... 8)

My idea of a side project is just something to work on without any intention of performing it at the moment (well, unless they want to hear an incomplete one!)

Liszt- Consolation in Db
Prokofiev- Diabolical Suggestion

I've almost got the Liszt piece done. I can't wait for the Prokofiev, I absolutely love the piece! (Although I just started it yesterday so it'll be some time before I'm done.)

Oh but you will do all three Gershwin at some point won't you? The second is gorgeous and the virtuosity of the third is so exciting!

I'm preparing multiple things right now, my two projects for this next year is one recital:

Bach- Prelude and Fugue in D (WTC II)
Haydn Sonata in C Hob: XVI:50
Liszt-Hungarian Rhapsody No.6
Debussy-Sunken Cathedral and General Lavine--Eccentic
Bartok- Allegro Barbaro
Morel- Etude de Sonorite No.2

then I am also learning for a separate recital the Beethoven Concerto in c minor (no. 3) Op. 37.

Yes, I have learned the 2nd prelude and it is indeed gorgeous. I always feel so 'mellow' after playing it. All the worries and hassles of the day just sort of drift away. The third one has always been hard for me. Maybe one day I'll give it another go.
