So I've found this Schubert piece which I find very beautiful. Would be nice to practice for next recital.

It didn't sound that difficult. However, looking over the sheet. There are some part that seem quite intimidating.

How can we answer your question when we don't know your "level"?

What repertoire have you recently studied and played well? How are your chromatic scales; there are a lot of them in this piece. There are also a few double-note passages in the right hand to be played fairly rapidly.

The only answer I can give is to tell you to try it and see how you make out with it.

Regards,

Well I've been on this forum for some years now. Though, I suppose I was a bit ignorant to think that everyone knows everyones 'level'.

I suppose the only piece with chromatic scales I've played was Mozart K397, I didn't have much trouble with the cadenza's in that piece. The only romantic piece I've ever played is Heller Etude: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=leKeEHIDhJA

The last several pieces are

Clementi - Sonatina op. 36 no. 3,
Mozart - Rondo alla turca,
Mozart - k545 (2),
Mozart - k397
Haydn - Sonata C Major Hob. XVI / 35
Mozart - a vous je dirais maman
Bach - Invention 8

So I guess it's time for a romantic piece

You may already do this— but start with the more difficult passages. If you can master those, you will know you can do the remainder. When I have forgotten my own advice, I have sometimes found myself in deep trouble 🙀

Seems to have a lot of tricky runs. It is a leap in difficulty from second movement k545 in your recital. I found Schubert pieces look easier than they are. It may be ok for you we don’t know your abilities. another perhaps easier option 2 or 3 from musical moment.

Actually my suggestions are probably not easier. If you like it take it to your teacher and get their advice.

I thought Schubert was a classical composer not a romantic composer ?

I think he's early romantic. Just after Beethoven really! He certainly goes against the classical ideal. Especially with quotes like

Quote
“No one feels another's grief, no one understands another's joy. People imagine that they can reach one another. In reality they only pass each other by.”


That screams romanticism!

And yeah, I enjoy the second and third moment musicaux! I was planning to do the third one, my teacher thought that was a good idea. I think there's some great counterpoint in too.

I've actually never done that! But yes, that certainly looks like a good plan!

Depends on who you ask... But the textbooks usually say the classical period ended with the death of Beethoven, and Schubert was at his funeral!

Schubert was a Classical composer until 26 March 1827. He was a Romantic composer for just under 1 year and 8 months.

Nice, thanks! Those all sound pretty nice. I'm just recently discovering more of Schubert.
