I'm humbled by you lot . . .

My repertoire just isn't there. I can't get it together unless I have somewhere to play; it just doesn't work for me. The nearest I have apart from a few easy play standards, are a few classics, two or three I can play by memory if my concentration holds out. . . .all my previous stuff I've played is virtually unplayable now. I'm hoping to rectify that. . . .
But it's gonna be slow. Since I have a big birthday coming up in a few months, if I do manage, I'll treat meself to a new piano.

But if I don't, I'll sell the one I've got!

I've lately come across the Liszt transcriptions of Schubert songs.

In particular, Auf Den Wasser Zu Singen is lovely to play.

But my favorite is Gute Nacht (from Winterreise). Some amazing piano writing from Liszt.

Maybe you don't even need a memorised repertoire. Actually only one of my pieces is securely memorised, for the rest I need the music. And I still mess them up 9 times out of 10 grin

I admit that I find it hard to maintain a sizable repertoire because I always have about six pieces on the go. I do not spend enough time on maintaining previously learned pieces, but with the ABRSM grade 8 prep my time is limited. I tend the forget the 40 piece challenge pieces as soon as I learn them! Hence my repertoire is constantly changing. I have several pieces I really want to relearn, but I have trouble finding time! Even my current playable list is mostly from the sheets. Only a couple are memorized. Still, I am having a lot of fun!!

Here is my current playable pieces-

Chopin - Prelude in B minor 28/6
Bach - French Suite 5 Gigue *Exam choice
Granados- Danzas Espanoles Oriental
Chopin - Nocturne in C# minor op. 20
Mendelssohn - Venetian Boat Song 30.6
Astor - Adriana *Exam piece
Kessinko- Waltz
Rebikov - Waltz

Work in Progress:

Beethoven Sonata in F Minor I- Allegro op 10.2 *Exam piece
Debussy - Dr Gradus Parnassum *Exam piece
Bach- Invention in Bb major #14
Chopin Prelude in Db major - Raindrop
Brubeck - For Lydia

Next up:
Chopin Polonaise in C# minor
Brahms - Intermezzo in A minor *Exam piece

I'm preparing for my "Half" recital at school, which is 20 minutes of music (not counting breaks for applause, if any). I have to have a piece from each of the four big periods - baroque, classical, romantic and modern. And it all has to be memorized, which is my biggest problem, since I am a senior citizen. I have a recital hearing on April 18, where a jury of three faculty decide if I can play the actual recital, which won't be until the fall.

Here's the program:

Bach c minor prelude and fugue from WTC 1
Mozart Piano Sonata K332 1st movement
Schumann Arabesque op 18
Templeton Pocket Sonata #2 1st movement "Moderato and Mellow" for clarinet and piano (my wife is the clarinetist)
Muczynski Preludes op 6 - #1, #2, #6

I've started exploring pieces for the full recital, which won't be until 2020 (if I last that long!). Maybe a set of Grieg Lyric pieces, a Beethoven piano sonata, a Bolcom modern rag, and another Clarinet/Piano piece. But I haven't committed to anything yet, I'm having enough trouble keeping the half recital pieces in memory!

Well, I used to forget the key I was playing in; and sometimes the song. I loved it when nobody (appeared to) notice(d) . . .

I have no rep either...if someone asked me to play for them tomorrow what would I do? I guess I have couple of pieces I could comfortably perform with sheet music...the rest is either wip or almost forgotten to ever exist. So...

Current repertoire:
Scarlatti sonata k87
Bach sinfonia nr.9

I could also play Bach prelude & Fugue a minor from book 2, but the tempo would be quite a lot slower than what you'd normally hear. So it's more like a wip.

I have a big piece under work that I am determined to get performance ready one day, but will take at least a couple of months with my present practice time.

Learned but not maintained is a long list of pieces hard to remember...stored in an excel file. My plan is to maybe bring back some of them. Or maybe I will just take on new pieces. I am now free to do whatever I want, after next week no more lessons...I used to review and polish pieces during the summer and always decided to keep them fresh forever but I never manage. Weekly lessons and my job just do not allow that. All my piano time goes to preparing new stuff for lessons.

Another problem in maintaining rep is that no-one wants to hear the kind of pieces I enjoy learning and playing...at least not more than once...

Yes, that's why I decided to begin to develop a "repertoire", so I can actually play something for someone once in a while. I still use the sheet music also, though might try to memorize some (working on memorizing Bach Prelude in C maj first). I found it embarrassing that I wasn't able to actually play anything on request after 4 years....now I have a few nice pieces I'm trying to keep current. Some may fade, others replace them but I'd love to build it to about 10 pieces eventually.

Good luck, Sam, with the recital - that's the real deal! Maybe when you have the full one, we can figure out how to stream it??? That would be great, you'd probably have the whole ABF forum watching.

SwissMS, any repertoire that includes a Chopin Nocturne is great! I don't know the others but might check them out when time permits. Actually, I had the 30.6 down for a while but it's fading.

I hope you all periodically update the lists for us!

As luck would have it, I just finished a review of the pieces that I have learned and am learning the past 6 years since I began playing. I think maintaining a repertoire is important and I have strived to do so so, with limited success, since the pieces go right out the window if I don't play them regularly.

Well - Hence the list. I have further organized the list into playsets that I play on a regular basis. I would describe the majority of the pieces as quite lyrical, which seems to be my strongest interest in piano repertoire.

Good grief, AZ_Astro, how many pairs of hands do you have? laugh Impressive list!

Cmb13 I think this is a very nice idea for a reference thread we can all return to again and again to update, refer to for ideas to keep our playing fresh and varied etc. i shall combine a list later. It isn't long. If contributors could put their experience level and/or grade it could help others with ideas for new pieces.

My piano and I have not met very much this week. I have not felt very good in myself and there has been some running around to do and some work-related dramas, stress and anxiety which have cost time and laid me low. My little exercise routine, piano practice, proper sleep, all went out the window. I am not feeling emotionallyor physically strong at all. So I havent been on here much. Read a bit but not posted. I need rest, copious cups of tea, with sympathy right now.

I did find comfort in some late evening playing through of some repertoire pieces though. These are mostly still wip and are mostly John Brimhall or Carol Matz arrangements of old favourites. I am not a fan of "classics made easy" type arrangements I would rather wait and learn the original. I quite like easier arrangements of film themes/ love songs/Great American Songbook etc though. Brimhall is satisfying because he was such a talented and prolific arranger, at grade 3 level his pieces are rich enough to neither be condescending to the player nor parody of the composer's original.

So to start us off my comfort pieces are:
Secret Love
I Can't Stop Loving You
Love is a many Splendored Thing
Over the Rainbow
Danny Boy

And Lindt chocolate smile

Cyberhugs welcome. Thank you for reading.

Astro, that's quite a list!!!! Very impressive! I signed up for La Fille also btw!!! Thanks for contributing.

Maddie, keep playing those comfort pieces until you're up and at 'em again! Hope you feel better soon! We'll have to take the drama to our other thread, but I hope you work it out and feel better soon. smile

I think this would be hard for me to maintain over time, as new things get learned, old things forgotten. I've visited a few piano stores over the past couple of weeks. The following is what I would play.

Current Repertoire
I Giorni - Einaudi
Nuvole Bianche - Einaudi
River Flows In You - Yiruma
BWV 114, 115, 116 - Petzhold/Bach
Arabesque (Op. 100, No. 2) - Burgmüller
Waltz in A Minor - Chopin
The Little Beggar (Op. 123, No. 2) - Gretchaninoff
Sonatina in C Major (Op. 36, No. 1, First & Second Movements) - Clementi
Sonatina in G Major (Op. 36, No. 2, Third Movement) - Clementi
Sonatina in F Major (Op. 168, No. 1, First Movement) - Diabelli
Clowns (Op. 39, No. 20) - Kabalevsky
Interlude - Mier
Reflections - Alexander
The Song of Twilight - Nakada

RCM 5
The following are what I have worked on thus far for RCM 5, so these are fresh in my head. I'll be working on other RCM 5 pieces and will decide later which to do for exam.

Sweet Sorrow (Op. 100, No. 16) - Burgmüller
Prelude In D Flat Major - Rollin
Menuet in G Minor (BWV 842) - Bach
Sonatina in F Major (Anh. 5, No. 2, First Movement) - Beethoven
Slow Waltz - Kabalevsky

Currently Working On

Fur Elise
High Heels - Einaudi
Sonata D Minor - Scarlatti
RCM 5 Ear Training/Sight Reading
Random stuff - stuff I just try for fun, if only for a few bars.

And then there are those pieces I learned, but would need go back and look at the sheet music. Some I would need to spend more time relearning, others I think I could play again pretty quickly.

Thank you. Actually no, have not heard that. Not a fan of ukelele myself. I do however think the definitive version (apart from Judy herself of course) is by the late great Eva Cassidy. Also found on youtube but I have her CD.

I like the idea, it made me realize I should spend more time to maintain old pieces!


Current
Chopin - nocturne op. 9 no. 2
Joplin - the entertainer
Mozart - alla turca
Debussy - reverie
Beethoven - fur elise
Jingle bells boogie (starting to fade away until next december)

In progress
Beethoven - tempest 3rd movement
Liszt - liebstraum no. 3 (actually starting it next week!)
My teacher will be introducing me to salsa soon, not sure exactly what yet!
I have a free spot here, any suggestions?

Things I've learned in the past and need to "re-learn"
Bach - suite IV allemande (not sure about exact name)
Chopin - valse Op. 64 no. 2
Beethoven - moonlight 1st movement
Walking bass
Mozart - Sonata k545 first mvt.

I like this idea. I returned to playing piano two years ago (in March), so 2016 was spent doing Alfred Levels 1-2-3 plus one piece from Granados.

Most of my repertoire comes from the 40 Pieces a Year 2017 challenge. This reminds me that I meant to keep up a few pieces, so I need to make a plan for revisiting them. I keep a Numbers spreadsheet for these lists, and my "want to learn" is just too long to list...!

Repertoire to keep up:
Granados Valses Poetica No. 6 - Enrique Granados
Waltz in B Minor (Op. 18, No. 6) - Shubert
Twin Peaks Theme - Angelo Badalamenti
Sensitiva, No 7 from Apariciones – Enrique Granados
Valses Poetica No. 5 – Enrique Granados
Sweet Dreaming (Op. 39, No. 21) – Tchaikovsky
Heartbreaking – Angelo Badalmenti
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas – Hugh Martin
Prélude in E minor (Op. 28, No. 4) – Chopin
Moonlight Sonata (Op27, No2, 1st Mvt) – Ludwig van Beethoven

Except for the first and last one, the rest are on my Soundcloud 2017 40 Pieces a Year list.

Over ten years ago I read Playing the Piano for Pleasure by Charles Cooke, who advocates just this sort of list! In fact, I was searching for more information about Cooke when I ran into these Forums and joined. His book--which has been reissued and is on Amazon now for about $12--goes into a lot of detail about how to maintain pieces from memory while also learning new ones.

You all have inspired me to keep up a list of my own--sort of like the website Goodreads, only for piano!
