Yes, unfortunately they are two of the most overplayed piano pieces in the repertory. Why don't you try the Sonata in F major K.280? It's not played much and it's a great piece. NO adjudicator wants to hear K.545 or Ronda alla Turca again, unless it IS Glenn Gould playing!  Smiley

Me? A Piano-monkey? I'm not good enough to be one. - Dazzer's thoughts on piano monkeys.
The last recording i did was Etude in A Flat. It would have sounded better in A Hall though.
