Hey everyone,

New to the forum. Seems like a wonderful place!

I'm just starting out teaching myself piano and composition. I've been listening very actively to classical music for about 6 months right now and am looking to expand that to include some peices I might not have come across yet.

One of my favorite peices I'm listening to is one I'm sure everyone is very familiar with. The 3rd Movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. I love the awesome ferocity in this peice and would love to find some others that might have that same feeling. Any suggestions would be great.

I can only hope to one day play it hehe :p

Hello!

You might enjoy some of Chopin's Etudes:

Op. 10 No. 12

Op. 25 No. 11

Also, Op. 25 No. 12, Op. 10 No. 4...


Do you know Prokofiev's music?

I tend to think of some of his music as a combination of "awesome ferocity" and mysteriousness. For example:

Toccata

Suggestion Diabolique

Etude Op. 2 No. 1

Thanks for the suggestions Sam, I will have to check out your links when I get home tonight. I haven't explored Chopin too much yet, but I am aware of his greatness. I am not familiar with Prokofiev at all so I'm looking forward to checking him out.

Another peice that just came to mind, although not strictly Piano, is:

Johann Sebastian Bach's Keyboard Concerto No 1 in D min BWV 1052

Love that peice as well. Especially the 1st movement.


Also I really like:

Johannes Brahms' Capriccio "Morning Butterfly"

Try to have a listen at Chopin's Ballades, Scherzos, Etudes, and Sonatas - they are quite good.

Also, you might like the Rachmaninov Concertos, Preludes, and Etude-Tableux.

if you like Moonlight 3rd, you might also like Appasionata op.57 1st and 3rd movement, and Waldstein sonata op.53.

I recommend 'The Chase', the last movement of Bartók's 'Out of Doors' suite. 'awesome ferocity ', energy, frenzy or whatever you call it from start to finish.

.. it seems to me that the inherent nature [of the piano tone] becomes really expressive only by means of the present tendency to use the piano as a percussion instrument - Béla Bartók, early 1927.
