Pieces one should have played..
on: May 24, 2003, 02:03:40 AM
Hey all.

I'm in a dilemma - I'm taking off for college in 4 months, and since I'm not gonna be majoring in music those four months are probably the last ones I can intensively work on my repertoire, at least for quite a bit of time.

I'd therefore be thankful for any suggestions of pieces one shouldn't miss studying - regardless of their difficulty. Just to give you an idea of what I already played: The Chopin and Liszt ballads, Chopins scherzos, some of his waltzes and polonaises, a few mozart piano concertos, his fantasies and some of his sonatas, as well as a few Beethoven sonatas and Nr 3+1 of his piano concertos; also the Grieg Piano concerto and Ravels Le tombeau de Couperin. Not to mention Bach.

thanks in advance!

Sorry to hear about your dilemma.  Is there any way you can take piano lessons without being a major?  And I don't know about others, but when I got to college, I realized that I had more free time than I had expected.

If none of that works out, I might suggest some Gottschalk...it'll be time well-spent.  ;D

Good luck with that.
