short pieces
on: April 10, 2005, 12:30:57 PM
i'm interested in one short piece, about 4-5 min. from romantic, or later period (not contemporary)  i already have one big romantic piece.  do you think maybe etude would be a good choice?

If you want another piece of Liszt, maybe try trois etudes de concert, No 3 in Db - Un Sospiro.  It's a nice lyrical contrast to the hurly-burly of the hungarian rhapsody.  If you dont want Liszt, maybe Chopin Etude Op 10 No 3 in E, or a couple of preludes or even a nocturne?

op.10 n.3 is slow, poetic, i'd like to have short, fast and furious piece, i was thinking about maybe op.10 n.1, or somethink like that

the thing about op 10 no 1 is it's terrifying to perform!  A great excercise, but very scary!  how about op 10 no 4, or op 25 no 12?
