Hi Sandy,

I just saw your post about the transcription of the 18th Variation. Actually, it's the whole thing I'd love to be able to play, with full orchestral backing - but as I said in the original post, dream on! I'm hoping to tackle the 18th variation one day, but I'm not in that class yet. Thank you for the information, though. I always follow the discussions of transcriptions on 'that other forum' with interest, so I shall add this to my growing list of versions I should think about acquiring :.

Chopin's Etude in E - Not the world's most difficult piece, but I think it will steal the heart of everybody, wouldn't it!

I've wanted to play Chopin's Etude Op.10 No.5 since the first time I heard it and my jaw dropped to the floor.

Also, not really a piece, but the piano solo in Skynyrd's version of Call Me the Breeze just blows...me...away! I like JJ Cale's original, but there's no piano solo and I surely don't play guitar! (Oh, but if I did....!)

I'll have to cheat as well (only one is impossible because of the moods one can be in)

Classical: definitely Chopin Polonaise Héroique op. 53 - this has been my favorite since childhood (and that was long ago) - played effortlessly and "nuancé" like Horowitz laugh

Semi-classical, blues: Gerschwin Rhapsody in Blues

Rock: Jethro Tull - Flying Dutchman, if I can ever find a piano score for it, I will die trying to play it. cool

Years of fun wink

Daniel,
I bet you have lots of interesting things to say! (I see that you also enjoy kayaking and I could probably talk hours about that, but I reckon that'd be for another forum, haha!)
How long have you been playing? What kind of music do you like to play?

Tina

Actually, Tina, I started taking lessons one year ago exactly at the ripe age of 55. So, I am still an "Early beginner" as my teacher says. :p
I like quite a variety of music - classical, neo-classical (as David Nevue puts it) , Québec folk songs, rock ballads. Eventually, I might add jazz or blues but it is still out of reach for now.
I am presently working on three pieces:
October, by Toronto pianist Stephan Mocci (check out his website, he wrote for Celine Dion, Sarah Brightman, Randy Bachman and Josh Groben, very good)
Je ferai un jardin (I will grow a garden) by Clémence desrochers and of course, a sonatina by Clementi.

I don't expect to get through these for at least another 3 months.
Then, I might take on a piece by Greg Maroney or David Nevue. I'm staying with slow paced music for a while.

I know... I am getting in over my head but... I think I learn better with a challenge.

What about You ?

Daniel

Daniel,

I will look up Stephan Mocci, sounds interesting, thank you! And Greg Maroney as well. I'm not familiar with either but it sounds as though we share about the same interests, so perhaps this will lead me to composers new to me! That's one thing I love about this forum!

What about You ?
I'll have been playing for a year next month. I started with classical, but then quickly discovered (again, through this forum!) composers such as David Nevue (who has quite a fan base here and pops in from time to time smile in case you haven't already noticed!) Ludovico Einaudi and Yann Tiersen. So, that's the kind of music that has me captured for now. Like you, I'm keeping it on the slower side until my fingers can follow the speed of my brain (not that my brain functions all that well to begin with :p ). But, I've begun to challenge myself with slightly faster pieces here lately.
I'd very much like to play blues one day and I dream of having the ability to actually improvise it!

Capsule1979 - I love that piece and watching the fingers of those who can play it!

Tina

I'm surprised there's so little concertos or even trios listed. For me, it'd probably be Beethoven's 4th, though Tchaikovsky and Chopin's trios come very close.


Yours Truly,

Mozart sonata for 2 pianos, K448/375a. I want to play the pianoforte I, not II. And, I would be content with only the Allegro molto section. I don't know who would play the II part, though, maybe someone from the ABF ?? My second choice is Rhapsody in Blue, but not a solo, I want to play with an orchestra. Since starting piano again, I'm drawn to ensembles, duets, orchestras, etc. And I prefer pieces that are written as duets originally, not arranged later on for a duet. Anyway, that's my dream.

"You've got to have a dream, if you don't have a dream, how you gonna have a dream come true?" (Happy Talk - South Pacific)

(edited - changed "make a dream" to "have a dream" Should have checked that before I used it, although both are true wink )
