I've been playing Bach chorals for a while and i enjoy them very much. I recommend them to everyone.

Im just looking for a little bit of variety now. Any pieces written in a vertical approach, it's not necessary to be strict chorals, nor baroque music. Just anything you can name, where most of it is written in chords (you know what i mean).

Schumann: Grillen from Fantasiestucke

Schubert Impromptu Op. 142, No. 2. The middle section isn’t like this, but the outer sections definitely are

Someone help me out, I’m blanking… some of the pieces from Brahms Opp. 116 through 119 fit this, but I don’t have scores with me at the moment.

The one that comes to mind is the E major Intermezzo that begins with three chords(not the one that starts with the LH triplet).

Maybe 118/2? It had a beautiful chorale like section (around 2:30)

This lovely Romance (with a more filigree middle section) is chorale-like:

I don't know of any collection of pieces of similar level like the Bach chorales. I can only think of individual pieces.

You didn't specify what difficulty level so the following are all over the place:

* Chopin op. 28 no. 20
* The second movement of the Moonlight sonata.
* The famous C-sharp minor prelude by Rachmaninoff is all chords except the middle section.
* Clair de lune has a section that is mostly chords.
* Several Grieg Lyric pieces have parts that are more vertical although not in entire pieces.
* Tchaikovsky op. 39 has a few pieces written vertically.
* Schumann op. 68 has some chordal pieces (no. 4, no. 41)

Any level is ok. If i can't play it right now, I'll try after a while, or I'll play it slowly.

The first section of the Marche Funèbre (30 bars) by Chopin opus 35 and the end are essentially chordal.

Mendelssohn can always be relied on for chorales - after all, he did resurrect the Matthäus-Passion. For instance there is the chorale Gelobet seist du, Jesu Christ in his second piano trio, not to mention Ein feste Burg ist unser Gott in his Symphony No.5.

You can even find chorale-like music in his Lieder ohne Worte, like this one:

If you mean something to perform, these seem to fit the bill:

What about Mozart "Ave Verum Corpus", Tchaikovsky "Evening Prayer" & Cesar Franck "Panis Angelicus"? I'm sure you can find piano arrangements for these.

The Liszt transcription of Ave Verum Corpus posted by tre corda, above, is not difficult and is quite lovely.

"I never dreamt with my own two hands I could touch the sky" - Sappho

It's ok to be a Work In Progress
