piano competition- piece suggestions.
on: June 28, 2005, 08:32:30 AM
i need suggestions of good piano competition pieces that aren't too difficult but will still impress and are interesting to listen to. i'm better at playing late romantic/early 20th century music, so please nothing earlier than that, because although i'd be able to learn them, they just dont work for me and i'd make a better performance of later pieces.

i will post pieces anyone else suggests to ask for opinions, but at the moment i'm thinking of Liszt's 'Les jeux d'eaux a la villa d'este', but that doesnt mean its a definete.

MMM  not too difficult but impress, let me think:

1- Rachmaninov: Prelude in C# minor Op 3-2
2- Bartok: Allegro Barbaro
3- Prokofiev: Suggestion Diabolique
4 - Brahms: Capriccio Op 76-1
5 - Saint - Saens: Allegro Apassionato

Hope this help


The masterpiece tell the performer what to do, and not the performer telling the piece what it should be like, or the cocomposer what he ought to have composed.

glinka's lark is a good competitive piece- if played well
dohnanyi's rhapsody in c sounds a lot harder than it actually is
