Tell us about some favorite encores you've heard in a live concert. Please give the name of the pianist also.

Here are a few of the thousands I've heard that I can remember right now:

1. Cherkassy playing Boogie Woogie Etude and Rubinstein's Melody in F

2. Kissen playing Brahms Hungarian Dances and Moto Perpetuo by Weber

3. Volados playing Horowitz's Stars and Stripes and his version of Rondo ala Turca

4. I can't remember his name( I think Jerome Lowenthal -head of piano department at Julliard) playing Brahms Romance and Rachmaninoff Lilacs

5.Uchida playing something by Schoenberg after an all Mozart recital!

Arcadi Volodos playing tchaikovsky's "Dance of the Sugarplum Fairy" after playing the monstrous Prokofiev 2. it was quite a contrast! ( and a delight!)

Carol Rosenberger playing absolutely nothing after a program that started with Schubert's C minor sonata and ended with Beethoven opus 111. After all, what can you play after opus 111.

Funny you should mention that. I heard Claude Frank a number of years back. He ended with op. 111 and after his fourth curtain call came out and played the Schumann Arabesque as an encore. I remember thinking the same thing - what else is there to add after such an experience?

Ruth Slenczynka playing Liszt La Campanella (after four Chopin ballades and Opus 10 etudes)!

I just thought of another great "encore". Earl Wild had just finished his famous transcription concert at Carnegie Hall. He played a couple of his Etudes based on Gershwin songs as encores(one of them was Fascinatin Rhythm) and the audience was dying for more. He walked out to the piano, stopped for a second, and then walked all the way around the piano and continued walking off stage! He left us all with a big grin on our faces. It was so funny that I still remember it even though it was about twenty years ago.

The encore I remember best was Horowitz playing "Traumerei" after completing his standard concert (Scarlatti, Chopin, etc.).

We all knew this encore piece was coming, but the performance was very late in his career, the acoustics were perfect, and I think the whole audience pretty much knew they were seeing a master performing at the very end of his legendary career.

When he hit the final 3 chords you could have heard a pin drop. And, most astoundingly, NO ONE clapped until well after the last sounds had faded away from the last chord. I think no one wanted to break the spell.

I still remember this encore like it was yesterday!

Andras Schiff playing Mozart's C minor Fantasy after a programme of Bach Partitas, Bartok 'Out of Doors' and Beethoven Op.109. He also played the G flat Schubert Impromptu, but it was the Mozart that stood out not so much as an encore but as the best Mozart playing I think I've ever heard.

For real encore material, I really enjoyed Piers Lane's rendition of Liadov's Musical Snuff-Box after a programme of Bach's E minor Partita, Beethoven Op 81a, Schumann's Humoreske and that Ragtime etude of Saint-Saens.
