First Performing/Concert Piece 18:48 on Saturday, May 08, 2004
Hi, I was just wondering what are some good concert/performing pieces to start with? Like nothing too hard, like La Campanella or the Badinage Etude, and no concertos either (most don`t sound good without an orchestra behind them). But they should be hard enough to impress people and give them a reason to come see it. But I`ve already thought of a few like the Heroic Polonaise or Fantaise Impromptu. I`m not quite good enough yet for songs like this, but I`ve advanced amazingly quickly so if I keep on going on this fast I should be playing these and/or other similar pieces in a year, maybe two.
Bye the way, if anyone knows where I can find George Winston`s Carol of the Bells PLEEEEAASE let me know!!

Well... wat the guy on top says is true (but not wat u got 2 do !) I started doing a Waltz( op64 n°1) from chopin after 4/5 months of piano play (tough i am 15 y/old so i think it`s easier to start playing an instrument) OK it took me a week to master it but... it`s possible!!!
also after 6/7 months i started a rondo from Mozart (also know as turkish march...i aen`t talking about the easy thing on this site i`m talking about the real one (level 7 akording to music-scores.com )from SONATA IX (i think)And that took me less than a week
So i believe in :" when there`s a will there`s a way"
