Not really sure of the term applied to many tiny but great pieces.
I am not sure they will work.

Consolations - if it's S172 then numbers 2 and 5 I think could sound rather 'cute' (well, kind of cuddly, I suppose blush) - 5 is sweet and 2 is rather fun when it gets going.

The complete Goldberg Variations :P

In all seriousness, maybe a Liszt consolation, Rach Bm prelude, or if you're not interested in showing off, the "Grazer Galopp" by Schubert.

Percy Grainger’s Molly on the Shore is kind of cute in an Irish sort of way.

Moszkowski: Étincelles; En Automne; Étude in A flat (Op. 72)

Ireland: Soho Forenoons; April; Bergamasque; Prelude in E flat; Finale from Sonatina

Prokofiev: Study in C; Suggestion Diabolique;

Bartok: Movements from Piano Suite

Liszt: Valse Oubliée No.1; Valse Impromptu (the proper title of "Petite Valse Favori"); Grand Galop Cromatique; Gnomereigen,

Ballade sans Tonalité; Paganini Étude in E flat; Au Borde d'une Source; Sposalizio; Petrarch Sonnets; Consolation in D flat;

Rachmaninov; Polka de W.R.; Italian Polka; various Études Tableaux (including the omitted D minor one, which is super);

Humoresque and Reverie (revised versions); Transcriptions: Bach Gavotte from Partita in E; Bizet: Menuet from L'Arlesienne

Schumann: Various pieces from Fantasiestücke Op.12, Kreisleriana, Noveletten, Waldeszenen; Romanzen Op.28; Intermezzo from Faschingschwank; Nachtstücke

Hummel: Rondo in E Flat

Grainger: Tune from County Derry (Londonderry Air); Shepherd's Hey; Molly on the Shore

Music that's under copyright don't have more than one publisher by definition, surely.

For Kapustin, his early works are published by (Russian) Muzyka, Moscow; his later ones are by Schott.

Friedrich Gulda - Play Piano Play.
These are 10 short pieces. The subtitle is "10 Übungsstücke für Yuko".

There are a few videos on YouTube with performances. Unfortunately not #10, which might be the most virtuoso sounding one, and therefore impressive for an encore.


My grand piano is a Yamaha C2 SG.

Kapustin's above-mentioned Concert Studies op40 are published by Schott, price around £14 GBP.

The Rachmaninov piece that I named as "Reverie" - that should have been "Mélodie" (in E major).

Actually that's not entirely true. A copyright owner CAN indeed transfer rights to one or multiple entities. But that's not what I was asking...and don't want to make this particular thread about copyright discussions.

Sometimes there are multiple prints. Example: One could contain a larger collection...etc. I've even seen the same exact material printed with and without pedal markings (same publisher). I've only played 2 Kapustin pieces, so I'm not familiar with the rest of his works ...hence the question.
