Haha, Rach 2. ;)  Even if you aren't able to play it well, while you learn it, you will be forced to learn the techniques to play the piece that may help you with the pieces you really want to play.  And who knows, but you in a year, whether it really will help you.

And I don't want to go on too much so you'll just get this reply from me.

Just curious, why did you only learn the first page of The Entertainer and not the whole piece?

Why not one of the easier Chopin Waltzes?

Chopin Waltz in A Minor is very unique from most waltzes. Clementi Sonatinas (G mjr) also is a contrast to Chopin. Regards, Lani

Very good piece, i'm going to make it with two piano with my teachers next year, but this piece is for two piano, or piano and orchestra, so i don't know if it can be a good piece for your repertory !

Inu,

Great site ! I have a very badly printed version of Nocturne 20a C# minor Op. posth from Chopin, and I found a very good one here !

Thanks !

a catchy one, well the Minute Waltz by Chopin is pretty catchy, that was the first I learned...am learning...am learning to play professionally...am enjoying! :)

Also, maybe one of his Mazurkas, Im currently practising Op 6 no 2, it's fun to play  :)

Yeah, check his Mazurkas. I just love the Bb flat (Op7 no1) I think you could manage it. :)

hey pies,
If you have Liszt in your sights, start with something small--> like a formal introduction to Liszt's music, like a Consolation or Liebestraume.  If you understand the lyrical Liszt, then the virtuosic aspects of Liszt will be ever so much more easy!  I find Chopin very difficult to memorize and perform.  I spend most of my energy trying to play the right notes, rather than enjoy the music.
