No, the pieces in Essential Repertoire are not ordered from easy to hard. These have been grouped together by composers. (Inside the composer groupings, they are ordered by difficulty.). The book does mention a list of a dozen easiest pieces, which is helpful. Since I have too much time in my hands currently, researching is not much of a problem. But in case of limited time, this book may not be suitable. I think I remember Masterwork Classics Level 1 being recommended for beginners somewhere. The site describes it as "A progressive repertoire series". Not very sure here either.

I've listened to the Essential Repertoire playlists so many times now, that I've got a bit attached to this book. LOL. So I'll continue with this as of now. The pieces in this book are too tough for me though, and take weeks!

I'm also around 5 months in, so really don't know much about the options available. I'm basically going by hit and trial. I really hope someone more experienced answers your question. If not, please start a new thread. That will be helpful for all of us beginners, and searchable for future generations too wink

Happy playing to you too!

Josh Wright recommends the Keith Snell series for graded classical music. Each level has a baroque/classical volume and a romantic/20c volume.


but think how good I could be in five years...

Take a look at this on hand independence.

As well as a separate etudes volume per level. But there is also a more abridged version of his series where there is one volume per level, but it contains fewer, only select pieces, gathered from the different specialized volumes.

1 To Catch A Dream <Recording> (by Martha Mier)
2 Shadows At Sunset <Recording> (by Martha Mier)
3 Einsame Blumen (from Waldszenen, Opus 82) <Recording> (by Robert Schumann)

My #3 is my submission to the 53rd ABF recital. A wonderful and delicate piece by Schumann, from Opus 82, "Waldszenen".
The English title of the piece is "Lonely Flowers". The opus is "Forest Scenes".
If you are interested in the comments that I wrote for my recital submission, you can find them here.

JoBert - Love your "Lonely Flowers".

Keselo - I enjoyed all or your recent selections, especially the Menuet. I don't think I've ever heard that one before.

Thank you. It's my favourite Menuet from the book so far, it's such a happy little piece. Should definitely be much better known.

I have been working on other pieces in parallel, so I would have to disrupt the sequence of the Burgmuller studies sooner or later.

Tech-Key, I really liked playing "On Top of Old Smokey" in Book 1. I think it was the first piece that used broken chords in almost every measure, and it was fun to play.

3. Desert Gold - Alfred 2A Performance
4. Heart of My Heart - Favorite Melodies the World Over

Yeah mom3gram, I'm also having good fun with broken chords. I learnt Chiapanecas first, which I found somewhat difficult. Playing Old Smokey after that felt very soothing.
