So now, we really might get rid of my semi-refurbished Werner upright (1910s?, Chicago) to replace with a Yamaha U3 to encourage more practicing. (There is already a piano good enough for practicing and performance, a small grand, but...)
Any ideas for what might be good to play / record on such a piano? In limited time?
If anyone is interested, here is my playlist of recordings I have made on this piano.https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDtig-RMDutp2L5_FFiaY8WAwW8HoCtTj
(So you can hear the piano and my semi-skill. Not much visuals, though.)
I suspect that rags (besides, I have a book) or else MUSIC no later than Schubert might be preferable. I have a recording of a Rachmaninoff etude-tableau on this Werner!—
but really, since the piano's slightly too run down for great control and the pedals currently don't work, there are serious limitations.
(Any ADVICE ON RAGTIME?)
Also realize that I won't really put in the effort to do the music justice. I can make plenty of pieces sound pretty, but I somewhat skimp in polish or technical perfection or even tempo and am sort of in a rush to get recordings now.
