Let me add my pieces for this year . I am not sure whether to count a piece with many movements as one piece for each movement or as one piece for the whole composition. Doesn't really matter . Interested in others opinions .

JS Bach French suite #2
Steven Heller Adagio
Frederick Burgmueller Agitato Opus 109 #8, Allegro Opus 105 #5
Johannes Brahms Romance in F

Those seems like great suggestions Squidbot, but I'm having a hard time finding the sheet music for them. I'm not sure what I'll be doing next.

02 Des Pas Sur La Neige - Debussy, from Preludes Book 1 - Youtube - I loved this piece to start with, then thought it was a bit samey, and then realised that it was the dynamics that gave it colour. I found it difficult to stick to the pp/p/occasional accents as per the sheet music so a couple of parts are a bit loud for my liking, and a couple of the usual flubs. I'm intentionally working my way through the book without listening to any performances, so it's entirely based on interpretation of the sheet music - I did look at a few links on youtube and have no idea how some people manage to stretch this piece out to almost 5 minutes! One translation of the title is footsteps as in actively taking footsteps in the snow, so I interpreted it as a slow 'walking' pace and playing the main motive any slower would lose that momentum, for me. Maybe I'll listen to them when I've played the whole book. smile

I was debating with myself if I should join this year's challenge again, seeing that I "modified" the 2017 challenge for myself into a "20 pieces challenge" and will likely have to do the same again this year, as I'm again interested in learning a few longer/more challenging pieces. But it was so much fun the last two years, so in the end, I thought why not! smile

So here are my first two:

1 Sonata No. 11 - Variation V from Movement 1 (KV 331, 300i) (no recording) (by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart)
2 Farewell to Cheyenne <Recording> (by Ennio Morricone, arranged by Jan Koláček)

The Ennio Morricone piece is the famous soundtrack from the movie "Once Upon a Time in the West" and given the unique character of the piece, I recorded it with two layered sounds: Grand piano and nylon guitar. I think it came out nicely! cool

I did get my recital piece recorded, video for YouTube made and mp3 for the recital software but I'm not counting it and sharing it until the day the recital goes live. So even though this one is technically my 2nd piece I'm not going to set it as 2nd but it will land wherever it will when the time comes.

Fantastic work everyone keep it up!

A nice piece again! To get suggestions it's maybe easier if you give information about what you like and what your experience is in total besides the two pieces you have posted.The main site where pieces are downloaded is imslp.org but you probably already know that?!

Why don't you take a method book? The pieces you took are already hard for a beginner...
See for scores for example www.imslp.org (you don't need to subscribe, just make sure javascript is enabled in your browser, you need to wait for 15 seconds to download a score). You can also take a look in the internetarchive for scores or just use a search engine if you know a title of a piece. It's to difficult to give suggestions as I don't know what you like (except for those two;-)) Good luck!

Hi DiggPlyV, I really appreciate you taking the time to write back to me. It's very encouraging.

As for what I like - in piano at least - these three songs are my 'goals', as in what I would like to be able to play.

Very nice, I like your taste! The first 2 where not available but maybe that's copyrighted for me? I don't know. You can probably use this information about chords. If you go to the mainpage of the adults forum you will find a list with beginnerspieces. But from the two pieces you've let us hear, you are a fast learner, you could try the collection "Winterpastimes" by Frank Lynes. They are a lot longer, but give you some possibility to practice already for what you want to play. If that collection is still a bit to difficult I would search for pieces with broken chords/arpeggios in it. Just look at that page and see if there's something for you too! I hope to hear you play some day the pieces that you mentioned above!

I forgot something that I noticed seeing you play- at least that is how it looked - and that I wanted to tell you, here is a video that tells you:

Playing the black notes

What I saw you doing was reaching out with your pinky but a video isn't always really clear if you experience tensing up when you do that.

He shows you how to play and move your hands when you play the black keys. I hope that it can be of any help. There are more video's like this one but this is the first I could find.
