Not in my opinion. grin (And anyway, I misremembered the OP - the qualification was actually under 3 minutes, so even the Prelude alone wouldn't be eligible.)

In which case, nothing by Fauré qualifies either....

(unless it's a tiny Prélude from Op.103....)

It may not be eligible (maybe it will be, rules are not firmly in place yet) but thank you for linking me to that performance of the Franck Op. 18. I just listened while following the score and it's really great.

If I had my way there would be no obvious composers, e.g. most of Polyphonist's suggestions for the letter B ;-)
If you must choose a semi-familiar composer at least make it an obscure piece :P

In fact, if it does go ahead, I'm doing B, and I'll be doing this :P

Ah, can I do one of Mendelssohn's SWW then? I'm not sure if all are very popular, I'm positive some are not as well recognized. I'm sure most (if not all) qualify for being under 3 minutes, and I was thinking of learning one anyway, but I'll have to make time for it as I'm learning Bach's 4th french suite ATM. So is this really going down?

I don't know how these things usually work. I was thinking a good way of doing it might be to upload them to Youtube and make a playlist?

Perhaps unexpected would be a better word than obscure? For example, I'll bet most people would have thought straightaway of Xenakis for the letter X. Obvious. Why not Xinghai Xian instead?

If we're allowed to have multiple entries, I will also take G for Godowsky. Something from Triakontameron or Walzermasken will do.

That's much more the sort of thing I'm thinking about. What a great list.

How about Godowsky for G? I would be willing to contribute an Etude in C major after Chopin laugh

Oh, just saw Polyphonist's post. My offer still holds though, for the etude.

If the aim is to do seldom-heard repertoire, the Etudes on Chopin would be the worst Godowsky pieces to play.

There are enough that you could do 26 separate recitals.

Technically the Godowsky pieces are seldom heard. But then again I'm itching to play and I've learned 2 of them conveniently lol.
