Wow, not at all what I would have expected from this thread haha, but I love international art house films! Thanks.

How about the four Rachmaninoff piano concertos.

If you are looking for expressiveness, have you listened to Bach's Adagio?

Another Baroque piece you might like is Handel's Chaconne in G Major HWV 435. It's incredibly forward looking in its range of expressive subtleties and quasi-romantic minor section.

Murray Perahia plays it the way I'd imagine Brahms would -- both true to the piece but not ignoring the potential the piece has for expression.

Thanks for the further suggestions. Today’s listen has been the complete Chopin Nocturnes. My clear favourites are No.2 (of course, and I already have the Henle for that), No.13 in C Minor and No.15 in F Minor.

That’s about where I started my classical education. I like Emin and c#min. I learned those first. I also like 9.1 and 9.2 but there’re a little harder.

Also the Chopin Preludes. E min, Db maj (Raindrop).

Then the Beethoven Sonatas. Pathetique and Appasionata. And Moonlight.

That will give you some listening!

It’s quite reassuring that I’ve not lost all my piano experience...

I’ve just played Fur Elise all the way through with the score in front of me, only slowing down in a few places but playing all the notes. A couple of weeks of good practice and I’ll have that one in my possession. I then played the right hand of Chopin E min Nocturne all the way through with most of the notes and trills.

I needed something to get me back in to regular practice and not just listening to piano every evening. All my spare time now is spent listening or reading about piano and I just need to add back in the regular playing bit! Let today be the day!

Good for you! Just stay disciplined and consistent. It's easy to get off track. Keep us updated on your progress as a pianist too!
