Social Media, Authenticity & How Not to Play Beethoven’s Für Elise

Counting the beat correctly in one of the world’s most popular piano pieces, Für Elise by Beethoven, is certainly not a bagatelle… As every piano teacher knows, students often have problems playing the right number of beats in bars 14 and 37. Read more >>

I've been in this forum for while but didn't find any discussion on this composer's pieces. Think he's a great one and I plan to add some pieces of him to my rep... but have no idea which ones to select.  Probably his lyric pieces are interesting and not very difficult to manage. I got some midi sound samples but it's not sound very real.....it's midi anyway!!!

 Thanks for you guys support)

Thanks to this Forum, he is now one of my favorite composers.
His Lyric pieces are out of this world. I am now working on one of his pieces Melody Op47 No3

So that being said there is stuff about him, but I think it's meshed with other stuff. Problably why you found nothing.

Peif Ove Andsnes has a great CD with some of the Lyric pieces on it. It's called Grieg Lyric Pieces. (go figure)

Anyway, that's all I listlen to these days, check it out if you want a taste.

Grieg’s piano concerto has been mentioned ad nauseum in the forum. Tongue

For more discussions on Grieg, have a look here:

I couldn't help but notice that Bernhard's Posts Number is 1337 Tongue . Also, Grieg is underrated, except for his piano concerto, but too many people think its common. It might be common, but dammit, I think its beautiful.

Hell yeah.  It's probably one of the most catchy concertos even for non-classical music afficiendos.  It'll be the first PC I'll work on after my exam stuff.

I'll be working on the Ravel Concerto in G before the Grieg whenever I have the possibility to play with an orchestra, which might be soon Smiley.
