Hi, I`ve been playing piano for a while, And I`m just finished learning Wedding day by Edvard Grieg. I would like to learn a sonata, prelude or something that`s quite challenging, not way over wedding day level (you have heard it? great great music I`m quite fascinated by Rachmaninov, Chopin some of his work, but what i like is too hard for me i guess ;P I`ll play it on a piano exam in the summer, so if you could suggest a cool almost "showoff" piece, it would be great.. although the most important thing is if the piece sounds good ofcourse. I was thinking about moonlight sonata 3rd.. how hard is it really? thanks

    Hi again I was posting something like the same post on the classical forum, i`m quite new here, i`ll just continiue the post here anyway A piece that suits my playing style is of course an important object.. But I would like to have a few songs wich i really like when i pick out wich of them i will learn.. as i practice alot (basicly pieces a little too hard for me, so i really have to practice to make them sound good) I need motivation. I`ve found this way of learning good and progressive for me.. The Rach G minor is a piece i really like, but don`t know how hard it is..? Thanks

    U know what? Liking is one thing. U should try the pcs out and see whether they fit u, esp. technically and stylistically. It`s pretty much just like buying shirts. And esp. so if yr taking exams.

    Some Rachmaninoff preludes are pretty great...enough said. You should check them out. And I`ve heard that Chopin`s Ballades are pretty great too, but I`ve never played them myself and I`ve only heard a couple of them. And yeah, the 3rd movement of that Beethoven`s pretty good. There`s tons more, just explore some. Good luck, Jackie
