The dreamed recital...
on: August 10, 2003, 10:08:26 AM
If you had to play in the Carnegie Hall or wherever you dream to play in, what would you play?

I think in this program:

Bach: 4 duets
Mozart: Sonata KV 281
Beethoven: Sonata op. 101

Scriabin: 3rd sonata
Prokofieff:8th sonata
Shostakovich: Prelude and fugue no. 15

And as encores some Schumann's novelettes, some Prokofieff's Visions fugitives op. 22, some Scriabin, Liszt,Rachmaninoff and Chopin etudes and of course some venezuelan pieces with intrincated folk rhythms. So, I'm ready because in fact, I already play everything I listed... :)

Would you play the encores in the same evening, or would you book Carnegie for another night?   :)

You're right about that's too much, but I was in recitals of Bashkirov, in Kiew, and Barenboim's, here in Caracas,and they were playing encores for almost an hour...

"Normal" pieces are written in the program,everybody knows that you will play them. Playing encores depends on how much the public applauses at the end of the recital, you can't let them without something else, it happens when you have to come out more than 3 times because of the applauses.Sometimes they just can't let go the pianist, as the cases I mentioned before. And it also demonstrates how vast your repertoire is...

How about an all Beethoven recital.

Hammerklavier

Waldstein

Appassionate

That would show off a bit.

NO idea on encores though.

Heh id have to, of course, bring up the all-chopin recital:
- Scherzo in Bb minor
- Ballade #1,2, or 4 (i rather dislike 3)
- Various etudes (op 10- 1,3,4,12, op 25- 5,7,11,12)
- Waltz in A minor posthumous
- Preludes 1,3,16,9

Encores:
- Fantasie-Impromptu op. 66
- Minute Waltz
- Prelude #24

Ok so i dont get it- an encore is just another piece, but possibly a bit more exciting?  How would an audience force you to play again? If you are allotted 1 hour on stage, why/how would you play longer?

allchopin:
The encores just have to be short pieces, not necessarily more exciting than the program itself. Bashkirov, for example, played transcriptions of Schubert's lieder. And Gabriela Montero, the greatest venezuelan pianist now, asks the public for themes and improvises on them.But the public don't force you: you can not play if you don't want to, actually Gabriela, when she played Rachmaninoff 3rd here for the 1st time, went out and said that she was too tired and couldn't play anymore. Encores are like a gift for the audience: you want, you play them -or if you can... usually only the greatests pianists do it and are ask for it-

In some cases they are not short pieces though - John Ogdon played the Ravel Left Hand concerto with the right hand as accompaniment as an encore! When I saw Baremboim, he played Scarlatti encores, Ashkenazy played Schubert, Perahia played Chopin etudes and Kissin played the Virtuoso stuff (Rachmaninov's Scherzo from A Midsummer Night's Dream transcription, Glinka/Balakirev The Lark etc.),

Well, I can't really put these in an order, but here are some pieces I would like to perform someday:
Rachmaninoff's Sonata op. 28
Rachmaninoff's Sonata #2 (1913 version, I forget the op. number)
Beethovens Hammerklavier, Pathetique, and Waldstein Sonatas
Liszt's Sonata in B Minor
Sorabji's Gulistan
Just about anything actally, by Chopin or Rachmaninoff, most of Liszt and Beethoven, and maybe a little Ravel (Ondine, especially) or Debussey (Reverie) also.

Well, along the lines of the all-Chopin concert, I might do all the Ballades and all the Scherzos, with the Fantasie Op. 49 and the Beginning as an extra and the Fantasie-Impromtu (or a few Etudes) as encore...  I'm not sure if that would be too long.  I haven't been to many concerts.

wooah Beethoven87 playing all 4 of Chopin's ballades might be a bit too overwhelming in one performance

You should mix up the pieces a bit

add some waltz at least =]

Nikolai Demidenko came to do a recital at my school and played a Chopin Impromptu followed by the Four Ballards in the first half (with Pictures in the second) and it was a fine recital!

I shall be hearing Demidenko very soon, and he will be giving a recital this month (April 2004) and the second half of the recital is exactly the complete Chopin Ballades.

My dream recital currently is an all-Liszt programme which I am working on:

- 3 Etudes de Concert
 (Il lamento, La leggierezza, Un sospiro)
- Vallee d'Obermann
- Sonettos 47, 104, 123 del Petrarca
- Apres un Lecture du Dante - Fantasia quasi Sonata
- Etudes d execution Transcendante
 (Mazeppa, Vision, Ricordanza, Harmonies du soir)
- 3 Liebestraumes

Having said that I still haven't got the guts to start working on the Sonata in B minor, even though I could play the "Dante Sonata" by heart. Otherwise I could have packed two all-Liszt recitals . . .
