Here’s the Kossenko piece


I like it a lot. Any idea where I can find the sheet music?

Repertoire Update 6/30/19

I’m shortening the active list. With learning new pieces and new skills, it’s too much. My teacher suggested so should choose 5 to learn well and memorize, so that’s my current goal (which I’ve basically reached, just short of complete memorization). Maybe I’ll add back others over time.

Repertoire Rotation
Bach - Prelude C maj (WTC I)
Debussy - Prelude VIII (La Fille Aux Cheveux De Lin) Db maj
Liszt - Consolation 3 Db maj
Piazzolla - Milonga Del Angel B min
Tchaikovsky - October (nearly complete)

Short List To Add Back From
Bach - Adagio D min (BWV 974)
Bach - Goldberg Aria
Beethoven - Sonata 27.2, 1st movement C# min
Chopin - Prelude 28.4 E min
Chopin - Nocturne 20 (Posthumous) C# min
Chopin - Nocturne 72.1 E min
Chopin - Prelude 28.15 Db maj
Satie - Gymnopedie 1

In Progress
Debussy - Clair de Lune
Saint Saens - Swan Song Le Cygne

Fading......
Beethoven - Fur Elise
Chopin - Prelude 28.7 A maj
Chopin - Prelude 28.20 C min
Mendelssohn - 30.3 E maj
Mendelssohn - 30.6 F# min
Mozart K545


Jazz / Pop
Autumn Leaves
Imagine
Misty
Killing Me Softly
Sirius / Eye In The Sky (Alan Parsons Project)
Pachelbel - Canon D (incompletely learned)
Fly Me To The Moon
Mad World
Time (Alan Parsons Project)
The Way It Is (Bruce Hornsby)
Over The Rainbow

Aspirations / Future Pieces
Bach WTC (assorted)
Beethoven Sonata 13 (Pathetique) Adagio
Chopin - Prelude 28.6 B min
Chopin - Nocturne 1 9.1 Bb min
Chopin - Nocturne 2 9.2 Eb maj
Debussy - Arabesque
Debussy - Page d' album
Liszt - Romance S.169
Scriabin preludes Op 11
Sibelius Op 40.9 Petite Serenade Pensees Lyriques
Tiersen - Comptine d'un autre ete
Rachmaninoff Preludes Dmaj, C#min
Rachmaninoff Fragments, Variation 18 Theme Paganini

Any updates?

Okay.....I'm really having trouble maintaining much of anything right now. As my pieces have become longer and more complex, I just can't seem to rotate through the repertoire and it's a little upsetting. Firstly, because I love these pieces and want to be able to play them whenever I want. Secondly, because I'm back to where I feel like I can't play much at any given time.....my new ones aren't ready and at the older ones are drifting away.

With that in mind, maybe I'll shift strategies to bringing back one piece, staying with it for a week, then on to the next one. I'll really have to limit them to a few select favorites. Last week I did the Liszt Consolation and Milonga del Angel; tonight I started to bring back October. We'll see how this works.

🍺 🍺 Cheers

I think it's a great idea to experiment with the length of time you spend with a piece cmb13, that might make all the difference...
Since my lesson 'block' ended last June...I've spent a lot of time trying to figure out my own lesson plan of sorts, which includes building a repertoire list. It's very helpful that this thread is here.
I've decided that I'll base my plan around the school year ( Sept.-June ). Each year my goals will be decided on and clearly defined during the summer, I'm reserving that time for making my lesson plan, discovering new music, and generally having some freedom and fun.
My plan this year is mostly about building a repetoire list. After six years I should definitely have one! ( even a very modest one ). I have 21 pieces on my current list ( almost all of them pieces I went though with my teacher ). I've left a few slots open in case there are a couple more that I really want to add....but I'm capping off at 25.
I'm rotating through them, no more than 5 at one time...when I feel that I've gone as far as I can with a piece at this time ( including memorisation ), then it goes to the bottom of the pile and I replace it with another one from my selection. For sure I spend a couple weeks with a piece before it gets replaced.

I've stopped looking at learning a piece as a linear process...but more like different points on a spiral that I keep circling back to...each time ( hopefully) with stronger skills.

Hi,
I like your thread idea. Here's my repertoire; a music list (average of 2 pages in length) I can play by heart.

Current Repertoire
Jeux Interdits (anonymous)
Ave Maria, Franz Schubert
Fur Elise, Beethoven

Work in Progress & Aspirations
The Swan, Camille Saint-Saens

Since we've moved, I no longer have weekly lessons. I'm hoping that building a memorized list of music will keep my brain active and maintain all the wonderful musical knowledge my teacher shared with me!

Have a great day!

Good list, I like those pieces; The Swan is really nice. I wonder, which version are you playing? I had an easy version, as I believe it was transcribed for piano by others, but would like something a little more in depth.

Suzy, you and I must have started around the same time; we're probably covering some of the same pieces. 21 pieces is a lot; I have that many as above, but find I just cannot keep up with even half that many. That's why I'm developing a "short list". Let me know how your rotation method goes; good luck with it! And feel free to post the list; I'd love to see what you're playing.

Just wanted to mention Charles Cooke had presented a method for keeping 3 hours of repertoire fresh (about 25 pieces), if there is any interest. His book is available on Kindle.

None of this is relevant for me. I look forward to having a first piece I'd like to keep as repertoire. 😂 Maybe by the time I get to RCM Level 7, I'll find something... or maybe not.

Hi cmb13,

The Swan arrangement is from one of those 'all time favorites' music book collections. It's 2 pages and written in the key of G-Major. It's a very pretty tune and I have about 75% memorized since last night's practice session.

Back as a student, the first time I was able to played through the first page without any mistakes, I thought I caught my teacher wiping a tear from her eye. Then I butchered the remainder of the piece. Ugh!

As a side note, I caught a YT of a performance of The Carnival thinking I might want to learn the other movements. Wow, it's a bit intimidating for me!!

Current repertoire:

Beethoven---Op.27, No.2--first movement
Beethoven---Fur Elise
Chopin----Op. 28, No. 15
Glass---Glassworks: Opening

Rock pop:

Queen: Bohemian Rhapsody (verse segment)

In progress:

Chopin---Op. 35---third movement (Funeral March)
Handel---Suite for Harpsichord No. 4 (HWV 437)--sarabande con variazioni movement

In reality--my repertoire pieces only really mean that I can play them reasonably well, in their entirety, from memory. They are all still works in progress and I am slowly polishing them as technique evolves.

It would be fair to say everything I play is a work in progress!

Love the list, Suzy. Baba O’Riley is no joke! like Hold The Line also.... they're all good. Of the classical, I’m working on Invention 4 now....I just completed 1. I’m looking forward to playing 13. Not that much overlap otherwise. Let me know how it goes with the project. I hope you can play them all at will by Nune - that will be a great accomplishment.

I only have 2 that I keep up, mainly because I love them and also to play when I'm testing pianos. I also wanted to have several active pieces in my repertoire but my current pieces are getting longer and longer, so that's just not reasonable anymore. It was easy when I was playing pieces 2 pages long. Now I'm looking at some 10+ page pieces, and many pieces that are 4+ pages. Just not doable anymore.

Josh Wright's video made me feel a lot better about letting completed pieces go. https://youtu.be/CH7bHgyW4Fc
