      Brother Will Green hi ! This is my first interaction on your community, our community. 
      mine of my dream is : Liszt Rhapsody number 2 !  just started yesterday! I read the entire sheet  in one hour yesterday to have an over view of the work, surprised myself that I read it so fast! now seeting the real technical details  and frame into place : reading and technical approach very slow, arms, hard positions etc. with my old hands that needs warm up in broken chords etc! But the main work is mental: setting our brain on the tonality and the general structure with this nain thinking « it’s easy » ! have fun makes you read much faster like a musical game fun time. Particularly with this crazy mad and beautifull  pianist composition made for out of lines crazy pianist! 😅 video later !

    Editing on Feb 6, 2022 with one additional piece.

     

    - Bach's Prelude & Fugue #3 in C#-major from book 1 of the Well Tempered Clavier.

    - Bach's Italian Concerto, all 3 movements.  I just learned the second movement, but have     probably forgotten a lot of it by now.

    - Bach's Partita #2 in C-minor.  I watched Martha Argerich's performance and was blown away by     it.  All 6 parts are great in and of themselves, but my favorite part is the Andante section of the     1st Sinfonia.

    - My two non-Bach pieces are 1) Rachmaninoff's Prelude #5, op 32 in G major.  I heard a     recording of it on a video and thought it was just so beautiful.  At first, I thought it was Debussy,     but surprised to learn it was Rachmaninoff.

    - And 2) Chopin's Etude in E-major, Op 10, no 3.  I was in the middle of learning this piece in my     senior year of high school, but had to stop when I went off to college.  I still remember my     piano teacher playing it which was the only way I got to learn how these pieces were played in     those pre-internet days.

    I´m actually studying one of my dream piece. Chopin´s nocturne in F, op. 15 n 1. A real challenge for small hands like me in the B section. But I´m loving. This piece is a treasure for me. Thanks.

      Vander Soares Ramos YES! I'm so glad to hear it, and I hope that you are finding your dream piece very rewarding. The middle section is indeed challenging with small hands! I totally empathize with you. I hope you are able to find a place to live in the sound where you can feel satisfied in playing it. How long have you been working on this nocturne?

    There are too many dream pieces out of the biggest (?) literature in music history.
    Currently might be Schumann op.6 and 11, or some Brahms e.g. the octave trill in op.15 (dream technic?) which are too dreamy to dare to dream... 
    i should be more realistically practicing scales and arpeggios and strengthening fingers.

    Currently learning Rachmaninoff’s Elegie opus 3 no.1.   Would you consider it for a lesson?    There are too many dream pieces to learn in a lifetime!

  • There are too many pieces to list, but I admit that actually the first that popped in my head is John Williams’ Over the Moon, which is the end credits to E.T.. It’s like a Chopin etude. That, and Chopin’s Berceuse.

    My dream is to play Rachmaninoff's 2nd sonata in this lifetime! (And a lifetime is probably how long it will take me to get to that level... 🙂)

    Those were my inspiration to keep practicing from my teenager years, even though I am in my 30s now.
