Hey, I'm new...

Anyway, I've just about finished learning Chopin's fantasie impromptu, and I'm wondering what song I should learn to play next. I'm not the kind of guy whose good at making up their mind and I could use a couple suggestions. btw, I like the darker pieces a little more than the happy sounding ones.

Those are good suggestions...maybe the 3rd impromptu, I was thinking of Chopin's scherzos, but I'm not sure if I'm even good enough. Maybe I'll play one next year.

Perhaps those pieces are a little too small of a jump from the FI?

How bout Ravel's Oiseaux Tristes (Miroirs), Chopin's Scherzo no.1 or 2 or Nocturne Op.27 no.1, Brahms Rhapsody Op.79 no.1 in B minor, Mozart Sonatas in A minor K.310 and C minor, K.457, and Scriabin Prelude Op.11 no.14.


i thought i heard my washing machine playing Ondine

eek That's considerably more difficult than the Fantasie-Impromptu - if the Chopin is indicative of the OP's current level I suspect the Liszt may be out of their reach for some time yet.

As long as there's no requirement that the next piece should be significantly harder than the previous (if at all), I think the posthumous F minor Étude of Chopin's might be a good follow-up to the Fantasie-Impromptu. It's more musically interesting, quite dark and mysterious and has a similar rhythmic problem to the Impromptu that might be more challenging to solve.
