I'm at a bit of an impasse right now:
I recently played some Bach preludes (935, 935) and some Scarlatti (K99, K466 a while ago) and two of the easier Chopin Nocturnes. I work on the baroque stuff with my teacher (who is a harpsichordist) but I've suspended starting new pieces there for a while.
At this point what really blocks me from playing the pieces to a standard where I would like to listen to them myself are trills. They keep interrupting my tempo or preventing me from reaching the pace the piece is meant to be played at.
I really don't want to grow to resent the Scarlatti pieces by just keeping on playing them sub-standard and becoming frustrated... so...
My idea is to take a couple of weeks to let the pieces "settle down" and practice trill technique specifically. For that, I found some good resources for that and have my teacher.
Since I also want play some music but things like the Notenbüchlein, etc. bore me I'm looking for ideas here:
I really love the piano arrangement of Piazolla's Libertango https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pNJTJrnpbjE&ab_channel=Kassia
but I'm nowhere close technically.
What are some easy to play, catchy, non-trill-containing non-classical pieces that have a similar vibe to this?
I'm also open for other things to keep me busy, so suggest away...
