I actually played:

Schubert - Piano Trio No. 1

*intermission*

Schubert - Piano Trio No. 2


Those in the audience who loved Schubert loved the recital. Those who didn't mostly left at intermission. smile

Hamelin brought this program to Oberlin:

Schubert: Sonata in A major D. 664
Schubert-Liszt: Marches

Intermission

Liszt: Paganini Etudes

At the last minute, he substituted the Schumann Fantasy after the intermission, and the recital was better off for it. The marches had killed off everyone's enthusiasm for Liszt.

I would call those unusual but perfectly reasonable recital programs. I'd really prefer that people invent recital programs that are stupid or crazy for musical reasons(not because of impossible difficulty) for this thread.

Hence my examples of programs with a Polka following Op.111, a program with all pieces in A flat, a program with only very slow pieces, and a program with a single Scarlatti Sonata and 23 of the Chopin Preludes.

pianoloverus, that's what I tried to do in my first program (with all the Chopin Ballades). Do you think that one is wacked out?

Haha! No, I'd continue with orchestral idea and do this Esquisse as a short encore piece:

The 4th Ballade placement was wacked, but you could "deprove" on the rest of the program(or am I missing something?).

Good. As a final refinement you could omit the inital performance of the Danse Sauvage and then use it as a subsitute for the coda of the Ballade no.4.

Also, pianoloverus, that's an ingenious idea! I also thought about playing the main theme in the beginning of the F minor Ballade senza pedal to make my technique more transparent and show everyone I can hit all the notes without fudging. What do you think of that?

BTW, there was this "Lecture" by H.Schonberg some millennia ago at my school, introduced by a rendering of the Goldbergs, without repeats, and, as a mere afterthought, the 12 Ex Trans by Liszt, the whole thing lasted about a week or so, and the 12 by L. didn't do the job, I suggest the following: 12 Liszt by an accomplished pianist, a break, 12 Lyapunov by an even better equipped one, fiesta. If the former could be the latter, hail him!

I once went to a program with all the pieces in G (David [now Sara Davis] Buechner programmed it), but when he realized what he had done, he substituted the Brahms Handel Variations with something else.

Here's an idea:
WTC books 1 and 2 over a week
Beethoven's 32 over the second week(if even possible)

Hey think of it as reading the whole bible to a bunch of devout Christians.
