Aaron Diehl: Ellington: “Single Petal of a Rose”
Simone Dinnerstein: Bach: Goldberg Variations
Joel Fan: Barber: Piano Sonata in E-flat Major, Op. 26
Lara Downes: Ravel: Piano Concerto in G Major or Schumann: Fantasiestücke

Very interesting although Hewitt and, especially, Bax "semi-cheated". Trifonov's is especially interesting since I think he's played it quite recently in concert and, although a very great piece, it might not be on many other pianist's radar as the ultimate piece.

The only one I've never heard of is Diehl, but that's probably because he's a jazzer.....

But I'm surprised no-one chose "The Maiden's Prayer" as their lifetime piece wink . Everyone seemed to be playing it when I was a kid (except me......).


"I don't play accurately - anyone can play accurately - but I play with wonderful expression. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life."
