Pretty straight forward. Name the pieces. Some are just fragments. "I can name that tune in"....just one chord?

Hopefully, after I'd made many nervous with my pianistic slash-and-burnery, the first one will elicit feelings of relaxation.

Go ahead, giggle at my note errors, I deserve it. :roll:

Location: Piemonte, Italy
3. Beethoven, Sonata Op.27/1 (Adagio con espressione)
(beautiful, you should record the whole sonata and submit it in AR!)

5. Don't know, I smell a scriabinesque aroma.

7. Mozart, Sonata K.570 (Allegretto)



I'm afraid I cannot go further than that. :x

Well, looks like I won't be winning this round. I don't know any of these for sure. :x

No. 1 is so familiar, though. I know I've played it in some random book that I have around here. Now it's driving me nuts.

No. 4 sounds like something Italian.

No. 7 sounds like Mozart.

#2 is either Clementi or Scarlatti, I think it is the latter but to name the exact sonata would be impossible considering how many there are.

#4 is Tchaikovsky's Neopolitan Dance from the AftY (I tried to play this piece but the left hand was a b*** when I tried to add the right hand to it)

For #2, I just need the composer, the name of the piece (not the specific number, just the generic title, such as "prelude" or "sonata") and the key in which it is written. (Hint, the recording stops not at the end, hence the last note is not the tonic.)

Number 4 is right.

You're right on all 5! :lol:

Number 5: I'll post the next few notes and I bet you'll get it right away. This is just one chord from a very long piece for piano and orchestra. (Hint)

Number 3 is right; btw I think I should record it, too. I know the whole sonata but it had many technical errors. I haven't revisited it in about 10 years, so I may give it a go. Thanks.

Number 7 is of course, correct.

The score is:

Monica 5...okay, 0
JG......................1
Alf......................2

Anyone have an idea on #6? It's the opening bars on a composition for Piano and three other instruments.

I think I should get a half a point for getting 'something Italian' for No. 4. :P

No one guessed No. 1 yet? I just know I've heard this and even played it sometime. Sounds like an elegy or consolation. hmmmm....

Is #1 a Schubert composition? ...wait nevermind, it's too short to be composed by Schubert, if it was 20 minutes long, then I would bet it to be.

I give up...

Ok, I saw your hint on the other forum. No. 1 is a Romance, but still can't remember by whom. I looked through every book I have and can't find it.

Pete, if you don't want to reveal all the answers yet, can you please pm me the answer to this one? It's really driving me crazy now.

Well, all you stated was that it is a Romance. And it is by Faure. Does that not count?
