My teacher caught me off guard today and was asking for another piece. Iâ€™m chose op 10 no 1 Rachmaninov which is quite straight forward but it got me thinking ðŸ¤” what I want for next piece. Iâ€™ve got a lot of slow and dreamy pieces but Iâ€™m looking for something like different. I call it spikey music but I think Iâ€™d call it light and spiky. Mendelssohn or Rachmaninov Iâ€™ve play a lot of recently so looking for other composers. Any ideas. I have one example of the style Iâ€™m looking for. I cant find much on YouTube.
Maybe Clara Schumann Scherzo NÂ°1 Opus 10 ? Chopin wrote a few too but darker than the extract you posted.
His 4th scherzo is definitely the most upbeat and playful of the group. I'm not sure the right word to use here for what op is looking for but I'd describe it as 'punchy' given his example of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Moo, I know you have played a lot of Mendelssohn who utilizes this style often so I'll recommend someone else.
Beethoven's Sonata No. 28 in A major movements 2 and 6 might fall under this category. Of course, Mendelssohn's Scherzo in E minor would be perfect
Why not mix it up and play El Albaicin from Iberia haha!
