This is a game similar to Name That Tune, but with piano repertoire. Here are the rules:

I will start by naming any of the 88 notes on the piano. The notes will be named such that the lowest note on the piano is A0, the highest is C8, and Middle C is C4. More information on this system can be found in this Wikipedia article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Piano_key_frequencies
The person who responds will name a solo piano work which begins with that note. Enharmonic spellings are NOT allowed. The piece must start with a single note, it can't be part of a chord. Transcriptions of chamber or orchestral works do not count.
After that, they will name a new note for the next person, and so on.
I think that's about it. Have fun!

Starting note: D2

By the way, I forgot to mention: all movements of multi-movement works count. So, for C2, you could say either the first or third movement of Beethoven's Waldstein.

Thinking about F6 now...it's a hard one.

Edit: I think I'm stumped. Maybe someone else can come to the rescue. grin

I think Joel should have to answer his own question for the win, but whatever. smile

Interesting game. Perhaps an indication of the era could make the game flow a little easier.

F#5 (Baroque)

Naming any piece that starts on D2 wins? I don't understand the rules.

Naming any piece that starts on D2 wins? I don't understand the rules. If so, why does anyone have to "admit" another person won?

I guess the winner is whoever stumps everyone else.

New rule?

How about when you name a key, you must already have a piece in mind, to be sure that a piece actually does start with that note.

New game?

I'l start:

G# 5

On the contrary; I'm finding many pieces that begin with a single note, and I didn't have to look very long and hard. These are all from solo piano standard repertoire :

A3
Ab1 :
Ab2, Ab2 :
A#4 :
B2 :
B4 :
B5 :
Bb6 :
Bb5, Bb5 :
C1 :
C4 :
C5, C5 :
D3 :
C#2, C#2, C#2 :
C#3 :
D2 :
D4 :
D5 :
Eb2, Eb2, Eb2 :
E2, E2 :
E3 :
E4 :
F2 :
F3 :
F5 :
F# 2 :
F#3,
F#4 :
G2, G2, G2 :
G4 :
G#2 :
G#4 :
G#5 :

etc., etc., etc.

Not sure about Eb3. I'll have to think about it. How about E3 for the next person to answer?

So on the table now are Eb3 and E3.

I'd say it's relatively rare -- especially when we're quizzed with a particular note that has approximately zero pieces that start with it! ha

Knowing that the note being quizzed is most likely the tonic or dominant makes this game a lot easier!

Well, "relatively rare" is relative, isn't it? I found 45 examples by looking at one "set" or "genre" each of the works of only four composers whose music was sitting on my piano. I didn't even have to go searching.

Not lately; I had to put it aside until I have further developed my technique to make studying this piece a fruitful endeavour with a possibly positive outcome.

Which reminds me : At my last lesson I asked my teacher what she thought of my working on a piece that she had recommended but about which I had doubts that I could ever master to a somewhat professional degree. She indicated that she wouldn't have suggested the piece if she weren't totally confident that I couldn't handle it well.

Of course, I wasn't talking about Kreisler's piece, and her answer might have been different had that been the subject of the discussion.

Cheers!

Just reread the rules; I'm supposed to name a note.

E5

(kinda surprised no one mentioned it before)
