Does anyone have any ideas about "wow" pieces? Piano pieces that people enjoy listening too and are challenging to play? Oh, and make people say 'wow'

Why not wow them with something they've probably never heard before?

Felix Blumenfeld's Impromptu in G flat, Op.13 No.2 is 2 minutes of some of the most gorgeous music ever written.

I sent a recording to a friend, and his response was, "The music is very strong. It just swoops over you like a storm and leaves you behind dazzled."

Another friend wrote, "It's one of those pieces that leaves me sitting motionlessly in awe, jaw dropped open and needing to catch my breath upon its ending."

Needless to say, the recording wasn't of me.

I've never found a commercial source for the score, but you can download the free public domain sheets at piano.ru.

Blumenfeld Impromptu Op.13 No.2

As for difficulty, try playing a series of four-note chords legato, cantabile, and allegro. The interlocking triplets in the second half of the piece make it shimmer.

When I looked through the Blumenfeld Etudes, that was the only one that looked fairly easy.

Then I realized it was for the left hand alone.

I don't know how "challenging" you want a "wow" piece, but
this is great fun to play and listen to: Percy Grainger's "In Dahomey"
also known as "Cakewalk Smasher".

You can listen to a bit of it here:
http://www.amazon.com/Percy-Grainge...es/B0000037AX/ref=dp_tracks_all_1#disc_1
It's #19 on disk 1,

Have Fun!

Check out The Ritual Fire Dance by DeFalla - Rubinstein plays it well (though perhaps a bit showy) at http://youtube.com/watch?v=Wj6_5qWZCDY

Listening to the Grainger selection that PlayLiszt posted reminded me of La Bamboula, by Gottschalk - another good piece that gets a good effect.

How about Ravel's Gaspard de la Nuit - Scarbo?

Here's a video of Kuznetsov playing it: http://youtube.com/watch?v=CNYcgguPmXw&feature=related. I can't believe anyone can even play it. If you can come close to this I would say WOW!!

Gottschalk has some amazing pieces that are almost pure grandstanding and a joy to play (if you can surpass some of his technical hurdles). Grainger was another finger buster, in my opinion, and some of his pieces are devilishly difficult.
Whenever I feel like being a showoff, I whip out the Gottschalk, though..

Nikolas : Messiaen: Vingt Regards - No. 6, Par lui tout a ete fait piano

Nikolas, believe me, I really don't want to start a war...
...but the first part of what KIm88 said was: Piano pieces that people enjoy listening to. Do you think perhaps that Messiaen piece isn't a bit too arcane to satisfy that requirement for most people?

Heh...

No war intended either. Nor I wanted to start one.

Explanation is simple: I didn't notice THAT part of the OP's post! laugh

But actually I find it extremely attractive. And I'm also NOT the average joe of music... :-/

I still think that totally noobs of music would find this stunning!

It's not the same but I know that people who knew NOTHING about music found the Prokofiev Op. 11 (tocatta) stunning! It's not the same, I repeat that. I'm just saying that some times people with NO education (missing classical education), are more used to stuff that we, the educated ones, find difficult.

But I agree. Definately not an easy piece, and I'm sorry for my post, above. Didn't notice the second part of the question. smile

A different input here...

Lots of pieces -

Lots of pianists -

can do the WOW factor.

I'd rather hear a sensitive emotional piece that is played well. One that can move me to that distant place of peace or stir me to my inner soul. One that gets me in touch with the composer and pianist's inner emotions

Fast, brilliant, showy is nice, but there is a nicer place to be with so many more pieces.


Quiet,

I totally agree with you lilylady, I absolutely love pieces like that. But there are some pieces that do both.

Liebestraume by Liszt is an amazing piece of music that can really move people - well I know it moves me. But it also has some runs in it which are tricky and do sound impressive.

But yeah, I know what you mean, pieces that really move you are the best ones to play

I always get the most stunned-looking faces after playing Solfegietto, by C.P.E. Bach. I learned it years ago and am still playing it. It looks and sounds a lot more complicated than it really is.

Kim, my favorite "wow"/waves-of-Lisztian-legato-arpeggios type pieces are Chopin's Etude in C Minor Op. 25 No. 12, Liszt's Concert Etude No. 3 in Db ("Un Sospiro"), Scriabin's Etude in C# Minor Op. 42 No. 5., and Scriabin's Etude in D# Minor Op. 8 No. 12.

I would add Dr Gradus ad Parnassum by Debussy, Toccata by Khatchaturian, both relatively easy but impressive sounding,Jeux d'Eau and L'Isle Joyeuse by Debussy which are more diffuclt. Debussy also wrote beautiful showy etudes and we haven't even started listing Rachmaninoff and Scriabin encores.

Anyway...If you like Liszt, his Transcendental Etudes fit well into this "wow" category...Nos. 11 and 12 are my favorites:

Well, yeah, Liszt gives good wow: most of the H.Rhaps., the Spanish Rhap., various concert etudes, the opera arrangements, Venezia e Napoli are just some that fill the bill.

- Tausig's Hungarian Gypsy Melodies and some of his Strauss waltz arrangements would do.

- As would the Godowsky Strauss waltz arrangements, and a bazillion other Strauss waltz arrangements by other virtuosi.

- There's always Balakirev's Islamey (and Son of Islamey, Liapunov's Lesghinka).

- Many Scarlatti sonatas have good levels of wowiness - he was one of the founding fathers of wow.

- Weber's Perpetual Motion works, both in the original, or even better in the arrangements by Michalawski or Godowsky (although there's a spot in the Godowsky that might be injurious).

- How about one of the many double-note versions of Chopin's Minute Waltz - the Moszkowski one is really pretty cool.

- Speaking of Chopin, his Ballades and Scherzi have good old wow, plus the op. 53 polonaise seems to reliably knock the socks off people.

- Villa-Lobos' O Polichenelle does the trick, especially with that double gliss in opposite directions. And of course, his Rudepoema is overwhelming, with a kind of mega-wow effect if played with sufficient energy.

- At contests, competitors frequently use Stravinsky's Petrouchka arrangement or Prokofiev's 7th sonata to supply a certain kind of highly calculated, almost rote, wow.

- I was recently totally wowed by Yuja Wang just ripping through the Cziffra arrangement of the Flight of the Bumblebee - it was without a doubt one of the most wowzilla things I've seen or heard a pianist do in a long time.

- Some of Ginastera's pieces have a strong wow component - I'm thinking of the last movement of the 1st sonata, but some of his other pieces are quite effective, too.

I must say that I enjoy listening to that piece very much. But I guess I also belong in the category of people who don't really count as people (read: composers)... wink

Thanks for the link Nikolas, I definitely say Wow! But in the end, that piece shouldn't be so hard. Once you get to bar 69, you just play what you already know backwards and you're already halfway through the piece! laugh

Hey, wr, I like all your "wow" variations.

I almost forgot about that jazz stuff I listened to all the time in college. My biggest "wow" back then came when I heard Art Tatum's "Tiger Rag." Kim, if you've never heard Art Tatum, get ready for a "wow" and a half. He was almost totally blind, for what that's worth.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaPeks0H3_s

Here's Tatum's rendition of Dvorak's Humoresque, if anybody's interested.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qYcZGPLAnHA&feature=related

Here's an improv warm-up by Cziffra, who played a lot of jazz in addition to fast Liszt.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pf2accwGEaU&feature=related

Also, the other guy in jazz who scared me was Phineas Newborn, Jr. His whole album A World of Piano! is sick. Mulgrew Miller said of him, "when he was on, it was all the piano you could stand."

I think it's time to hear from the Original Poster to see if we are "on-track' with her/his expectations. See the original post: 2 parts.

This could go on ad infinitum (not that that's bad, as Seinfeld said) yet perhaps only 5% is within the capability of Kim88.

At this point I feel like we are shooting blindly through dense fog on a moonless night.

What say you Kim88?

Roger: Indeed if the pianist is insane enough and able to retrograde 5-6 pages... by all means then this piece is easy! laugh hahaha!

But really, the pianist in the link is doing an AMAZING job (I know, after seeing this in youtube I went and bought the DVD, which is simply stunning throughout!)

As a reply to PlayLiszt, I posted that to get some ideas as to what pieces I should learn next. I'm after a piece that won't cause the audience to fall asleep in the middle of it, one that will make them want to listen to your playing.

Also, pieces which are beautiful and really move the audience but also have that 'wow' factor (eg. Liebestraume by Liszt which I mentioned earlier), pieces that you can pour so much emotion into.

Many of the suggestions are incredible pieces and I've definately learnt alot from this post.

Well, for a simple piece that isn't difficult The Storm by Burgmuller ( I think ) seems to impress a certain friend of mine who insists I play it every time she visits. The piece is becoming like Rach's C#Minor Prelude for me.

Since Playliszt recommended some Grainger, let me also recommend a set called Four Irish Dances, originally an orchestral suite by Charles Villiers Stanford, "freely arranged" by Grainger for piano.

Two in the set (I only know three) are quite virtuosic and exciting, but the main reason I want to bring up this set is because it is so well-composed. Much of Grainger (to me) seems somewhat superficial and sentimental to me, but these pieces have an internal integrity that you can hear even amid the flurry of notes.

It's a surprise it is not played more often.

A ridiculously crude interpretation! I was saying WOW, but for a different reason. eek

Ah yes - that's better.

Not that I should be criticizing the other guy; La Campanella is one of the pieces I attempt every so often, and I can't play it yet. Probably won't be able to play it, ever.

Larisa:... Not that I should be criticizing the other guy...

I disagree. He, or someone, determined that it would be OK to ATTEMPT to perform this in public. This is "BAD JUJU, MON".

A good performance is rewarded with applause; a great performance with the standing ovation and curtain calls. An atrocious performance should be rewarded accordingly to perhaps re-introduce reality to whomever decided this person was ready to mangle this piece in public.

This was an example of wasted bandwidth on the internet.

Well, I suppose. I feel bad for the guy, though. And I wonder how many people would fling tomatoes at my Youtube videos for the same reason.

But yes, I agree with you; this should not be up there. I could not watch the whole thing through.

How about Mendelssohn's "Spinning song"?

Very easy on the ear, nice and airy, something every one would enjoy listening to, but in my eyes impressive also to "look at", though I am sure there are many songs which are more difficult...

My son just finished up the allegro movement to Faschingsschwank aus Wien. Definitely fun to play. Audiences react very well. It certainly has wow factor up to speed. And it's not such a killer that only a professional can pull it off.

Any piece is a "wow" piece if played just right. wink

(At least to classical fans anyway.)

I'd sorry Aviator1010110 I'd have to disagree with you on that one, there are some pieces which are ridiculously long and incredibly boring. They make you want to fall asleep. The thing is, you're playing for your audience and if they're asleep who are you playing to? I think the goal of a pianist is leaving the audience wanting more

Regarding the La Campanella video(the "interesting" one)-Is he being serious? Is there an avant-garde thing going on here that I don't understand?

Well, I think it's pretty serious, at least compared to his interpretation of the revolutionary etude ...

I would have rephrased it as any *good* piece can be a wow piece. If it's a good piece and the listener is bored than it could be the listener's fault. I've heard several live performances of the Hammerklavier Sonata or the Brahms Sonata No.3 and have not been bored and certainly felt "wow".

Of course, the question depends on the audience.
If they are not classical music fans they could be less than "wowed" by either of these works. It also depends on one's interpretation of "wow".

Here's a very short and technically easy piece but for me it was a wow piece because it was played far more beautifully then I had ever heard.

It's reputed that Brahms fell asleep during Liszt's performance of his Sonata. While many consider this Sonata to be among Liszt's finest works, Brahms thought it was boring. And i'm quite sure that neither is Brahms musically illiterate, nor is Liszt a bad pianist! It's just a matter of taste.

Most people consider Liszt's Sonata his greatest work. There was even a thread on PW on Liszt's greatest work not including the Sonata. There will always be exceptions to liking a great piece of music but I don't think this has much to do with thread.

Felix Blumenfeld's Impromptu in G flat, Op.13 No.2 is 2 minutes of some of the most gorgeous music ever written.

I sent a recording to a friend, and his response was, "The music is very strong. It just swoops over you like a storm and leaves you behind dazzled."

Another friend wrote, "It's one of those pieces that leaves me sitting motionlessly in awe, jaw dropped open and needing to catch my breath upon its ending."

Needless to say, the recording wasn't of me.

I've never found a commercial source for the score, but you can download the free public domain sheets at piano.ru.

Blumenfeld Impromptu Op.13 No.2

As for difficulty, try playing a series of four-note chords legato, cantabile, and allegro. The interlocking triplets in the second half of the piece make it shimmer.

Actually, Brahms excused himself because he had been absolutely exhausted from traveling. Thus, the fact that he fell asleep is not a demonstration of dislike for the piece.

I don't usually like to comment on other peoples' playing like that, but someone put it in public (youtube) so I assume that it's ok.

Oh my! This is bad playing! Bad bad playing!

Oh jesus, my poor ears! Did he really post those videos himself? You can hear the audience mumbling to each other and some even leave during it. I am of course refering to the la campanella and revolutionary-videos.

Did he really do this volentaraly? Maybe his teacher was holding his family hostage or something until he did the performance.

I wonder if his teacher was proud that night.
I´m just imagining if it had been one of my students...I would have offered to comitt suicide in front of the audience as apology.

I guess some people just don´t have it. I mean, I have never been close to being this bad, ever. Even my first sight-read through those etudes sounded more convincing. How the heck could they let him up there? I´ve seen some bad stage-nerves, but oh the humanity.

I'm not sure about where you can find a recording. I did print the music out from the link earlier in the chain, and it is a quite nice piece. It's not exceptionally difficult to play at a moderate tempo. The fact that the piece is in Gb makes it easier to play, as it's easier to navigate the keyboard on the black notes. The difficulty level would ramp up if you moved to a performance tempo.

As for it being a "Wow" piece, my wife told me without prompting that she thought it was really pretty. She usually just complains that I'm playing too loudly. :rolleyes:

Yes, I saw the music, thanks wdot smile
I like to hear someone else playing the piece first... so I can get a "feel" of it.

Regarding people who want to hear a "wow" piece.

I LOVE the Raindrop Prelude, and if played with emotion (as it was intended) you can actually feel the raindrops pitter-patting off the roof tops smile

It's a gorgeous piece.

I also like to play Chopin's Prelude in B Minor... (can't remember the op. numbers, will get back to you on that one tonight).
The Prelude in B Minor is not difficult at all, but you can put so much feeling into it.

To me, a "wow" piece is how I "feel" the piece under my fingers.

I think that is partly because I am nowhere near a standard you guys are (even though I'm grade 6). I couldn't do massive long technical runs that have people jumping up and down with joy. I just love playing pieces I can feel... smile

I'll send it to you.

Felix Blumenfeld's Complete Preludes and Impromptus, played by Philip Thomson is one of my very favorite CDs:

Blumenfeld Complete Preludes and Impromptus

The pieces range from nice to exquisite, Thomson's playing is wonderful, the Ivory recorded sound is gorgeous and Earl Wild's Baldwin sounds alive.

From classicstoday.com:

Pianophiles will adore this music.

Track 26 is the G flat Impromptu.

Curiosity got the better of me, and I finally checked out this ... umm ... atrocity. (Yep, that's the word.)

Dang. That's a "wow" piece for sure! It made me think of Charles Bukowski's title, "Play the Piano Drunk Like a Percussion Instrument Until the Fingers Begin to Bleed a Bit."

Just when my ears were about to begin to bleed a bit, I found a bit of unexpected relief in this incisive comment:

Somehow when I play fast Chopin Waltzes like Op.34 No.3 (valse brillante) people get impressed. Stuff that has fast notes which aren't actually hard to play impress people.
