I'm working on Sonatina in C, some Christmas music, and a few other random songs. I think I'm gonna take a look at Raindrop No. 15 - Fredrick Chopin soon. I printed the sheets for it the other day, but haven't gotten around to playing it yet.

Grieg; second mvt from his sonata

Prokofiev; prelude op. 12 no. 7, having a pretty hard time with that  Embarrassed Anyone who can give me advice about this piece can send me a private message!

Mozart; sonata no. 12 (k332)

Bach; Sinfonia no. 15

Czerny; some etudes from his op. 299   
It bores me so much, but I have a teacher who thinks it's best to play them. Any other etudes which are more fun to study?

Good decision!

I am currently learning K208.
Then I'd like to start K99 (that one is really cool!)
Then maybe K32, K98, K466, K322, K109, K259, K19, K40, K11, K9... the list is long...

They are nice to learn, they are challenging enough to me to be interesting, but not too difficult to get me too frustrated. My teacher thinks they are useful. And of course they do sound so nice!

Beethoven 12 variations on "das Waldmädchen", WoO 71, A major (almost "finished")
Chopin etude op 25 no 2, f minor
(Chopin etude op 25 no 7, c sharp minor) (I've learned that on my own..)
Moszkowski etude in g minor
Stenhammar fantasie op 11 no 1, b minor
Brahms rhapsody op 72 no 1, b minor
Bach italian concert, mvt 1 (so far), F major

Also the accompaniment for "think of me" (from the phantom of the opera), but not as serious as the other pieces.. I'm maybe gonna play it with a singer later on.

I hope I haven't missed anything now. If I have, I'll come back Smiley

Okay, replace Bach inventions with Scarlatti sonatas. I just discovered how cool they sound!  Grin

Scarlatti's sonatas are like a bottomless cookie jar of new discoveries that never disappoint, and are also perhaps the apex of late baroque keyboard sonatas.  Around 600 of them survive today, and historians believe that the vast majority of them were written in the last decade of his life. 

I think their appeal derives from a couple of things: the clear lines of melody demonstrated in most of them that forshadow the coming of the classical styles, yet still use the same chromatic devices great composers employed to great effect during the baroque, a most sublime and dynamic combination.  That, and their crisp Spanish influences add to thier uniqueness.

I always work on at least 3 different sonatas of his at any given time as most are very approachable to an early/intermediate keyboardist.  I probably wouldn't want to throw out Bach inventions, though, as they are still very useful in addressing specific technical issues of that style.  If fact, I lack being able to play Bach with ease and plan to begin studying the invetions to help with that deficiency.

Although there is plenty of Scarlatti to go around, if anyone's interested, similar keyboard composers of 18th Century Spanish era include Antonio Soler (usually more challenging than Scarlatti and personally not ready for), Manuel Blasco de Nebra (can't go wrong with a name like that!), and Carlos Seixas (Portuguese) to name a few.  There are many others not mentioned that demonstrate this unique style also deserve attention, but tend to be very hard to find and require hoops such as interlibrary loans (how I obtained the Blasco de Nebra) to find.

Regards

currently in addition to my solo work, i have to put a rush/priority status on the piano reduction to the orchestral parts of the hoffmeister viola concerto and the kabalevsky violin concerto.

 i really wish these publishers would get good pianists with a decent sense of appropriate pianistic writting rather than just putting every darn note played by the ensemble into a piano part and call it a true and good and propper realization of an accompanyment. i mean these are not as bad as some vivaldi and bach ones i've had to essentially re-score/re-arrange but some parts are really stupid.

My teacher and I just choose some new music at my last lesson, about an 1 hour ago. So, here is the new stuff I'm learning now:

Brahms- Capriccio op. 76 no. 1
Tauriello- Toccata
Scarlatti- Sonata K. 209
Cramer- Etude in B flat major (I'm not sure of the exact opus number)
and I'm finishing up all three movements of Haydn Sonata hob xvi 23.

I've also been assigned a whole load of scales and theory to work on Angry

I recently went mad on amazon and bought a whole lot of new stuff. Also, I have a huge backlog of stuff I've downloaded. So, at the moment, I'm on a break from real study and just trying to work my way through what I can. I'm finding it quite an interesting experience, actually, and it's doing my sight reading and some of my technique no end of good.  Smiley

Haydn sonatas hob. 34,37 and 48 I think along with Czerny op.299 nos.13 and 14

The big deal for me is the Chopin prelude no. 19 in Eb major.  It's extremely challenging for me but very rewarding because I think that trying to do it has improved my Chopin playing in general.

I've been practicing and playing through some Scott Joplin Rags, because I'm planning on learning some of them with my teacher. I think it would be neat to learn four or five of them by the end of the summer and record them for YouTube.

My music soiree coming up so I'm practicing my old stuff again like Beethoven and Bach. I might include some singing since I'm now in the choir. I often lose my way when singing, in terms of notes. I have a  bass voice.

Scriabin sonata 9...! Cool

Bach prelude and fugue in A flat major.  It's been like four months now and it still sounds like Schoenberg...  Angry

Appassionata?   Undecided  Maybe?
