Hello people,

I need suggestions for romantic piece, from 6 to 9 minutes long. Liszt and Chopin primarily, but anything will be taken into consideration. Smiley
Difficulty level is not so important.

Thank you!

Kind regards,
Ante

A lot of his etudes

I'd second the Barcarolle.  From the bass note at the starting to the intensity of the music throughout, I can't get enough of this piece!  ~8 minutes I think?

I've heard the Ballades to death (3 people at my school this year are studying the same one!), but the first, second and third would be good choices.

What if you did a group of his preludes.  #13-16 would be pretty intense   Cool

Some of Liszt's 'Annes de Pelerinages' is very good.  Maybe a Petrarch Sonnet.

Also, his Funerailles (Might be a bit more than 9 minutes, depending on how fast you play it) is amazing.

Chopin Grand Polonaise Brilliant. But unfortunately if it is played with the Andante Spianato it is over 10 minutes, but it is Still a Thrillingly beautiful piece. I am not the inclined towards Liszt, but I absolutely adore his Hungarian Rhapsody No.12 In C sharp minor.

Already played Funerailles, HR12, Petrarca and Grand Polonaise. Smiley
Group of preludes is very interesting idea!

A lot of potential material here..

I am very fond of the Wagner-Liszt Isolde's Liebestod and Liapunov Nocturne, op.8 (Chopinesque and with some lovely moments), both of which fit the time requirements.

If you are feeling brave try Balakirev's Capriccio in D. Alternatively I would do Chopin's Ballade number 2 or Scherzo number 1. They are the least performed

Thank you, guys! I decided to take Liszt's last three transcedental etudes. Smiley

Oh, man! I didn't get in in time!

Try some Alkan! His music is hardly played, but some of his works are very good! (And no, contrary to the myth, is NOT, or is even close to impossible.) I think you would enjoy this one, Etude in C Minor Op. 39 No. 4 "Symphony, 1st movement." It sounds like the first movement of a middle or late Beethoven sonata. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YMPk6ZHMPpc
