How much good stuff is out there by composers not known for piano works?
I’ve played a couple of waltzes by Verdi and Puccini which are neat to have up ones sleeve (the Puccini is the original version of Musetta’s Waltz)
Da Respighi Concertos I like and the tre preludi are meant to be good. There’s variations for piano/orch by Verdi which I’ve been meaning to listen too.
On the other hand this is laughably bad
Mahler iz 1 ov ma fav cumpozaz but rarely tranzd fo zolo 88
Dere iz a Friedrice Minuetto from da 3rd zymph
I think da only 88 instrumental work is da quartet no?
The 5th zym Adagio get’s played quite a bit but I dun think it works.
There’s an 8 hand verzion of da rezzurection zym been recorded.
Tru , juz too big to prog alzo
How often iz da 9th proggd ?
I dunno but been meaning to do it the past 5 years! (da 2 piano that is)
Pozz with choir.
I honestly like some of Rossini’s piano works. Hardly great, but sometimes at least fun and worthwhile in that respect. Bruckner has some things as well I think.
Mahler should have written a piano concerto
ahahahaha da cumplete SHITZO mvmt iz da limit of wut da zepp iz willin to zit thru in cuntcert
Richard Strauss’s Sonata and two cycles are great.
Charles Gounod, Schreker and Leoncavallo also wrote sum 88 zongs but I don’t know if they’re any good.
I listened to the sonata ages ago but didn’t leave much of an impression. Gould recorded it didn’t he? Although I don’t known if he’ll help or worsen the cause.
AHAHAHAHA DA FUCKIN WANKARAH 88 ZON
REZPEC diz mofo fo attemptin to write a huge zolo zheeyat fo da 88 while
haffin clearly nevah zeen a fuckin 88 or 73 or 69 zcore publizhed aftah da 15th century
Tru. There’s also a half hour 1 movement fantasie which apparently rips off every major cumposer of the time. Pozz better than this…but most things are.
I quite like this, although still awkward af 88 writing.
@mikey try this CD, it’s excellent:
Stefan Vladar - Richard Strauss - Pieces Op. 3, Sonata Op. 5, Stimmungsbilder Op. 9
