I have the Henle edition of the Complete Dances, Book I, Franz Schubert. For the past month I've been playing these at my lessons as "thow-away" pieces--play a new one each week. I can sight read through these pieces if I go very slowly, and they are short--usually only about sixteen measures (but with repeats that go to eternity smile ). There must be several hundred pieces in Book I.

Do any of you have selections to recommend?

I will continue to play through, regardless, but if you have favorites I'll try those first. My favorite so far: D 145 (Op. 18), no. 6.

D783 is fabulous. I don't know whether it is in volume 1 or 2.

D783 must be in Book 2. I'll look for it on IMSLP. Thanks.

If you do a YouTube search on Schubert Dances you will probably find some example where pianists have chosen a selection because they like them and feel they go well together. For example:

I don't know if they are in the Henle editions, or where, but here is one of my favourite performances of a selection by Richter of the dances from D366:

Yes, D. 366 is in the book I have (Book 1). I did no. 1 a few weeks ago and just started no. 2 a few days ago. Maybe I'll just continue on through. Thanks.

LXXX, I want to thank you again for the D. 366 suggestion. These are little gems. I have been sight reading through them (slowly) and then going back for more serious work on them.
