This is where we share the pieces we're playing and get advice from others in the group. I'll start—I'm currently working on two Chopin nocturnes, one in C Sharp Minor (No. 20), and one in B Flat Minor (Op. 9 No. 1).

Haha what are my pieces called? I'm playing Beethoven's Sonatina (Sonata?) in C (WoO 51 - allegro), Chopin's Op. 70, No. 2 waltz, and the Stolzel Minuet in G Minor, which is significantly easier and shorter than my other pieces because why the heck not? (It's for a competition and you can take two pieces from the current level and one from the one above/below so I got this one. It's fun though.)

Kaitlynn Cook | 2 comments I'm working on deBeriot's Violin Concerto No. 9, Beethoven's Violin Sonata No. 5 (Spring), and Bartok's Romanian Folk Dances. I'm not really working towards anything besides general self improvement!

@Sapphire: Have you listened to the Arthur Rubinstein version of the Chopin waltz? He's one of the best pianists when it comes to interpreting Chopin IMO.

Also, my competitions are all online/recording-based for the time being. So that should be interesting.

@Kaitlynn: The violin concerto no. 9 is one of my favorites! It's so technical and such a crowd-pleaser.

I'm listening to it right now. It's really really really really really good.
I know one of my comps is going to be recorded, but the other one hasn't said anything yet.

Oh I love that nocturne! Good luck with the Bach lol

I "finished" the nocturne and immediately replaced it with Chopin's Mazurka in A Minor (op. 7, no. 2). I also started "Twilight" by Margaret Ruthven Lang and it's very pretty (except for when in my hands). A little while ago, I started a piano trio by Julius Klengel (op. 39, no. 2). This one sounds like me dying, which is frustrating, but, alas, that is the life of one who isn't actually that good.
