op.9 no. 1 B Flat Minor
op.9 no. 3 B major
op.15 no.2 in F Sharp Major
op.27 no. 1 C Sharp Major
op.72 no. 1 E minor
Nocturne in C Sharp Minor (from the Pianist)
I desperately want to be able to play them EXACTLY how Idil Biret interpreted them. She is brilliant, those are my aim but not just to play them but to play them PERFECTLY I dont' care if it takes me a lifetime!!!!!!!! I also love Baracolle, Berceuse and Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto no. 2
My realistic pieces and the ones I'm playing at the moment are Mozarts Turkish March and Valse Petit Chien by Chopin.......... :
Can anybody tell me if there is one stand out hard piece out of those...personally I reckon it would be no. 1 in C Sharp Major but I could be wrong.
Oh yeah Are there any specific excersises that would help the technical side specifically for nocturnes....?? And on a scale of 1-10 how hard are these pieces??
trust me, your goal pieces would be a lot different, let say...two years from now...
I thought those rating things are really subjective cause it really depends one your experience and how you want them to come out... out of all those nocturnes I bet the C#minor posth is the hardest of them all because you gotta be *really something* to make a over-played like that to stand out (fyi, in those older piano forums you can find at least two C#minor noct in each page of the audition room sub-forum...) 27n1 and 9n3 might be a bit more note-y but they wouldn't be that much of a disaster if you give yourself a few year to explore Chopin and all that good stuff...
