Most Favorite Piece???

Just wondering, what's everyone's most favorite piece to play? Not necessarily the most difficult, but the one that you could sit down an play all day end never tire. The one song you would most like to play/perform/listen to above all others????

Shag :)

My favorite piece, above all others to play and listen to...

Hmmm...

The coda of Chopin's C-minor Scherzo, op. 39...

It just falls right under the hand...my hand, anyway...and it's very fun, and very wild...the whole scherzo!

back in my early youth, I learned a piece by Grieg called Wedding Day at Troldhoggen(sorry for the spelling). It's so simple, yet sounds difficult.
Mmmmm, I could play that tune forever!

I recently enjoy play Op.10 No.1 over and over again to hear the harmony.

I don't really have one single piece, even one single composer. Beethoven, Chopin and Liszt top my favourite list, and I have a list that I ardently love and could play whole day, even whole year and never feel bored:

Beethoven Sonatas
1. C minor, Op.13 (Pathetique): particularly the first movement, my best-loved of all Beethoven
2. C# minor, Op.27 No.2 ("Moonlight")
3. D minor, Op.31 No.2 (Tempest)
4. F minor, Op.57 (Appassionata)
5. Eb, Op.81a (Les Adieux)

Beethoven Concertos
1. No.4 in G, Op.58
2. No.5 in Eb, Op.73 (Emperor)

Chopin
1. Scherzos 1, 2, 3 (um . . . 4 is yet a bit too sublime for me - even now that I'm 41)
2. Waltz No.6 in Db, No.14 in E minor
3. Etudes Op.10 No.1, Op.25 No.11 (Winter Wind)

Liszt
1. 3 Etudes de Concert (Il lamento, La leggierezza, Un sospiro)
2. Etudes d'execution Transcendante 6 (Vision), 11 (Harmonies du soir)
3. Vallee d'Oberman (Annees de pelerinage I- Suisse 6)
4. Sonetto del Petrarca 47, 104, 123 (Annees II - Italie 4, 5, 6)
5. Apres un lecture du Dante (Annees II - Italie 7)
