Classical Piano Recommendations


Recommended Posts

Thanks Anu,

I liked the first one , parts of it. I'll check out the more mellow works of the Finnish genius soon. If you know any, please post.

I'm actually looking for something which is soothing :) only Classical.

Erik Satie achieves that mood that I'm looking for so effortlessly. Its been on repeat since afternoon and its almost midnight now!

 

I didnt like the 2nd track :/ not good. It is.

hey! Thanks :) It is nice. (at very low volumes, at high volumes the atmospheric sound overwhelms the piano and deafens your ear :D ) Is it yours.?? Can I download it somewhere..??

Maybe you can find something interesting in Chopin's music. Like this:

or this:

Thanks Padremac :)

I do like them both.. I never knew I liked the piano compositions so much! Until I stumbled upon Erik Satie's work.

 

Can you please recommend more musicians..?? I will check them out :)

Same time period would be great. There is something about these musicians from late 19th and early 20th century.They all are geniuses! I hear the golden period was 17th century, I dont know much. Just started to explore.

If you like Satie, you'd probably enjoy some of the piano works by Ravel :

 

 

 

Also, Alkan wrote some beautiful music, a bit Chopinesque, but technically closer to Liszt in difficulty.

So tell me, is the above video of Chopin - Waltz an insult to his actual works .??

 

No offence Pamremac, I really like it.

Not an insult, just a very different style.

 

Here's a very fine Waltz by Chopin. You'll notice a different sensibility to his music.

 

 

And this piece here, the 4th ballade in F minor, is my personal favorite out of all of Chopin's works

Thank you :) These are lovely.

 

Ravel is a bit too much for me.. It might take some time to appreciate it I guess.

I think you'll appreciate a lot of Chopin's music. The Ballades, in particular, are all beautiful. The Scherzos are more frenetic.

 

Ballade 1 in G minor :

 

Ballade 3 in A flat :

 

And here's Scherzo 3 in C# minor :

I read an interesting article about Zimerman's stand US military policies , then I found out that customs had destroyed his piano and later I found out that he is master piano builder/repairer! along with being the best surviving classical pianist. Wow!

 

Thanks again, I'll check out the latest recommendations soon.

Yeah, it gets harder and harder to fight my anarchistic tendencies when crap like that happens.
