“The Pianist” Movie – A True Story
It is often difficult to understand the present even if you know your history, but watching Polanski’s movie “The Pianist” can at least help us to understand the greatness of music as an artform and that humanism can be found even in the darkest places and situations. Inspirational, educating and deeply touching it is indeed reflecting very important topics from the saddest sides of humanity. Read more >>

The Well Tempered Claviercord
on: June 20, 2004, 08:09:36 PM
Can someone suggest to me a piece to play from this publication.  Im not the biggest fan of Bach but feel I should make an effort....

I was also wondering which of Chopins Polanaises are least difficult, and what people think of his Rondos?

Thanks for any comments

JK

In my opinion book 2 is the better of the Well-Tempered Clavier.  The F minor prelude is pretty nice and has a good fugue.

As for polonaises I've worked on the C minor and Eb minor aren't as hard as some of the others.

Although there are probably easier ones I don't think they'd sound as good.

WTC Book 1, prelude #12 in F minor is a good one.
