I would like to ask if anyone has some good suggestions for piano music that I can play/perform at my monthly piano club ? Since the December meeting I am somewhat floundering about what I might learn for January and so far have tried some Greig (Solveig's song) and an arrangement of a Delibes' orchestral score.
The type of music I learn with my piano teacher are typically the easier Mozart or Beethoven sonatas but I tend to think these are just a little too difficult for me to perform in front of an audience when in addition to the music I have to also cope with nerves. They also take me more than a few weeks to learn.
Pieces at around ABRSM grade 5 or 6 from the classical or romantic period would be ideal. Also if you have any suggestions for books containing various pieces at around that level.
Thank you for reading this post.
I have just had a first play through Einaudi's I Giorni and to my surprise think it may be suitable for performance at our meeting on 20Jan. It is similar to the piece I played at the December meeting, Sakamoto's 'Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence'. The latter wasn't my choice and was totally out of character to what I normally play but I was requested to play it by the group leader. The Sakamoto piece was both a pleasure to learn and to perform but left me with uncertainty as to what I should be presenting at the January meeting.
It would also be nice to see contributions to this forum from Colin.
