As far as I can recall my list *was* something like this - of course the list of playable bits and pieces nowadays is sadly down to a bunch of Nocturnes and a couple of passages here and there (Perhaps its time to try and practice again and see if I can revive some skills?):

Chopin Nocturnes: ...lots but Op9 Num1+2 first ('89-present)
Gerswin Preludes:.... 3 of them ('89)
Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue ('91)
Debussy: Cathedral, Claire-de-lune, Golliwog ('88-'89)
Schubert: Impromtu B flat ('89)
Rachmaninov: Prelude C#min ('89)
Rachmaninov: Concerto #2 (2nd Mvt) ('90)
Mussorgsky: Pictures at an Exhibition ('90)

thinking about this list has made me sad.... if only I coudl go back 20 years and NOT let it all fade away....

Top marks 17 year old Oblacone from Norway ... your repertoire is top drawer.

When my eye caught sight of ... The Poet Speaks (13) ... your only venture into Schumann’s spell-binding Kinderscenen Opus 15 ... I had to check out the age of the OP (who had to be very young) ... obviously Chopin has bitten hard with all those nocturnes ... liked your late reminder of the Moonlight 1 and 2 (won’t be long before you grab the nettle ... and include the racy 3rd movement).

For my own part, once having started on the Schumann Opus 15 ... being bowled over by a radio broadcast of 15-12 "Falling Asleep" ... next day I had bought the score and devoured the lot ... IMHO one of the golden masterpieces.

Imagining what the breathtaking keyboard future holds for you, has made my day ... congratulations.

I think I spent a solid year on that, and drove my mom absolutely up the wall when I was 18 or 19. I auditioned for Oberlin with it and got in.. then dropped out a year later when the dot-com bubble burst.. live and learn.

Why would anyone want to post their "complete repertoire"?

To show off. Wallow in self-pity. Have a bit of fun. Pass some time. Why not?

I don't really have a repertoire as I only started lessons a month ago having dabbled for a couple of years.

Pieces I'd be happy to play in public:
.

Pieces I've dabbled at playing bits of:

Bach
WTC I - C Prelude

Beethoven
'Moonlight' Sonata mvt 1

Chopin
Nocturnes (in Em, Fm and Eb - can't remember op #s)
Waltz in C#m (64 2?)

Rachmaninov
Prelude in C#m (badly)

Pretty typical stuff.

I taught this for the first time last year - it's a beautiful little piece, simple at first glance, but having great depth and sophistication.

Curiosity. Interest. To find out more about each other's experiences with piano and relate it to our own. Same reason a lot of people post their recordings I imagine. One of the things that has always fascinated me about the websites of professional pianists is the repertoire section.

Those were the only two I could think of; that's why I really wondered.

Of course theres an element of showing off every time one talks about ones achievements. Is that a reason not to talk about ones achievements?

My repertoire is not limited to but contains Kreisler's "Easy Piece" posted in another thread by pianoloverus. I've worked extensively on that one. It has truly given my technique a boost.

Bruce, come on. The point of listing repertoire is mainly to share. Why else are we here? Do you object to people listing their current projects in their signatures, or even listing their piano models in their signatures? smile

There's another benefit one might gain in assembling a list of every piece one has worked up-- it makes you think through your history, and it allows you to see that history in a single glance. It gives you some sense of where you are and where you've been. Try it-- you don't have to publish it-- and see if it doesn't give you a insightful summary view on what you've accomplished so far.

Or it can remind you of what you want to do.. in my case, it was "I love Debussy so much, why don't I know more of his music??"

I have no objection at all to people discussing their projects; I do it myself because that's part of the "service" that this forum provides. The word that phased me was "complete". I'd rather have - or read - a discussion about particular works or planned projects rather than read someone's five-page list of every piece he's played since grade IV. I just don't see the point of such lists, unless it's simply an excuse for "bragging rights".

But, if that's your thing, go for it.

Regards,


BruceD

wow....its amazing to see people with so much experience up their sleeves...thanks for sharing..

When people list their repertoire I don't think it's showing off....they are just responding to a request that's all..
