This finest pieces are so rich musically . And technically , il does not requires a lot .
So do you think it will be a good idea to give thes pieces as homework to pupils who just begin to play nocturne of Chopin?
Or it is only supposed to be given to very advanced students?
Beethoven 4th concerto
Beethoven op.111
Ravel Une barque sur l'océan
Franck Prelude chorale et Fugue
Scriabin sonata 4

I started to learn them not long after I could play a couple of the less difficult Chopin Nocturnes. They are wonderful pieces, as you say, and most of them are not that difficult technically. I can't see any harm in learning them relatively early. They are deep enough that it's not as though you'll get bored of them and never come back to them later.
