Recital Program... for the last time
on: June 08, 2006, 09:28:03 PM
Alright, I'm going to give a recital at the beginning of September.



Schumann - Romance Op. 28 No. 2

Beethoven - Sonata Op. 22

Chopin - Ballade Op. 38

------------

hmmmm?

Griffes - The White Peacock, Op. 7 No. 1

Kabalevsky - Sonata Op. 46





I would like to play something by Brahms or Scarlatti after the break, something blocky instead of lyrical (Schumann Griffes etc has enough of that).  I know Bach French Suite VI, but I would feel funny playing that and following it with wierd (yet amazing) impressionist music.  What are some Brahms or Scarlatti (or someone else) pieces I could do, learn this summer?  I don't want anything flashy, nothing more difficult than the other pieces.  Thanks, hope you like the program so far.

How about starting off with the Bach and moving the Schumann till after the break? Or better yet, either keep the Schumann in the first half, or keep it as an encore.

Instead of learning something new, learn something new about the current pieces you know. Experiment with them, and see if you find anything you like and want to replace with something before. Even if you know you love it as it is, you might find a way of playing it that you love even more.
Currently learning:<br />Liszt- Consolation No.3<br />J.W.Hässler- Sonata No.6 in C, 2nd mvt<br />Glière- No.10 from 12 Esquisses, Op.47<br />Saint-Saens- VII Aquarium<br />Mozart- Fantasie KV397<br /

What about this:

Schumann-  Romances Op 28 (Complete)

Brahms - One of the Ballades Op 10

------------------------------------------

Grieg -  Sonata in E minor

Dvorak - Humoresques
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.
