OK, so I feel like I need a new type of piece to play. So I came up with a few things that I want the piece to have that I hope doesn't make finding it to hard. OK, so I want a piece that is not too long, somewhat fast and exciting, has a nice amount of runs in both hands, and octaves that double up in both hands. I hope this doesn't make it to hard to find a piece.


Once during a concert at Carnegie Hall, the violinist Rachmaninoff was playing with lost his place in the music and whispered to Rachmaninoff, "Where are we?" Rachmaninoff replied, in all seriousness, "Carnegie Hall".

hmm. A few of Mozart's and Haydn's Sonatas have these elements and they are not too long about anywhere from 12-20 pages. How about Haydn's Piano Sonata in E-flat major HVI/52;L/62?

Wow. Sounds almost like an exact description of The Great Gate of Kiev. Although, this piece is not fast, and does not have a huge amount of runs. It does have one huge run in the middle with both hands going from the top of the keyboard to the bottom, I find it to be very hard. It is a very nice piece.

Only thing I could think of.
Sorry.

Liszt's 17th Hungarian Rhapsody? Even the 18th, at a push. Both short, easy to learn and very exciting 'B' sections with parallel octaves - the ending of the 17th is manic.

O.K. So how about something that's not too difficult and has lots of interesting challenges. The Brahm's Hungarian dances. They seem to meet the criteria Rach 3 suggested.
