Funnest piece you've ever played
on: October 21, 2023, 05:08:33 PM
With what piece did you have the most fun playing/practicing/performing?
For me probably Bartók alegro barbaro or Mendelssohn song without words "Jägerlied", of Brahms intermezzo number the easier one.

Difficult to pick one but the Polonaise in A flat Op. 53 by Chopin is pretty satisfying to play!

Khatchaturian's Toccata is one of those pieces that sounds really hard but is actually pretty easy.

Either that or Bach's D Major fugue from the WTC. It's not complex yet has all the components that fugues should have.
Advanced pianist and beginner composer. The Schubert sonatas are amazing and I want to learn all of them eventually!

Albeniz Rondena and El Albaicin were both fun to play once I "got" them. The process of learning them was less fun, Albeniz is so awkward at times!

Difficult to choose only one, I had great time playing the Rachmaninov-Siloti Polka italiana! Also playing the
Liryc Waltz from Dances of the dolls, D. Shostakovich
