Ideas for repertoire in my masters
on: April 17, 2020, 09:00:57 PM
I am going to be starting graduate school in the fall for piano pedagogy and performance. I am still currently in my undergrad but working from home due to the virus, so Iím attempting to get a head start on music for this fall. I still meet over video call with my current professor and she wants me to bring her a list of pieces and she will help me get a good set of options to discuss with my future professor.

I am looking for some ideas on what to play. Preferably, not any Beethoven Sonatas or Chopin pieces as I already have been looking into them.

If it helps, I can list some of the music Iíve played in my undergrad to get a feel for where I am!

Bach - Italian concerto
Bach - a few preludes and fugues from book 1
Haydn - E flat major sonata hob. 52
Beethoven - Pathetique
Chopin - Preludes op. 28 no. 15 + 17
Chopin - Etudes op. 10 no. 5  + op. 25  no. 9
Rachmaninoff - moment musical no. 5
Rachmaninoff - Prelude in C# minor
Brahms - Rhapsody op. 79 no. 2
Debussy - Pour le Piano
And a few more

Some suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated as Iím really hoping to find something new and interesting!
