So I started my Piano Performance and Pedagogy degree on Monday. It's going to be a lot of fun, but very challenging.
Currently my professor wants me to play the following:
A Moszkowsky Etude From Op. 72 (The F Major stands out to me, but he suggests that I learn the first page of 4 of them by next week and decide from there)
A Liszt Bagatelle or some other shorter Liszt Piece
A Scriabin Prelude (Which I've already narrowed down to No. 11) Here's the audio:
Honestly, I love this Scriabin Prelude, it's a recent discovery for me, but very nice indeed I think.
I'm already set with a Mendelssohn Prelude and Fugue
And I need a Prokofiev Piece (Something under 6 min or so)
Other than that I will be completing the Saint-Saens 2nd Piano Concerto (or rather, refining it).
But we are also looking at the Rachmaninov 2nd Piano Concerto, which I've already started and Possibly the Poulenc Piano Concerto (not the double concerto).
Audio for Poulenc:
I assume that you are familiar with the Rachmaninov 2nd, if you aren't it's probably my favorite piece of music in all of music land for the piano.
And I need a great 3-part Bach invention, which I believe are also referred to as "Sinfonias"
My big problem is with Bach, personally, I don't like his music as it is rather dry and technical, so any recommendations would be great.
If you are familiar with Moszkowski, I'd greatly accept recommendations as well.
The Scriabin needs to be from Opus 11
