    What's your favorite repertoire?

    Mine include the early Chopin Nocturnes, Schumann Kinderschenzen, some of the Mendelssohn Songs Without Words, and recently got hooked on Ernesto Lecuona.

    Satie: Gymnopedies, and all things Chopin. When in a darker mood, a bit of Beethoven. Pounding the keys. icon_evil.gif

    Mozart and Beethoven sonatas, Scott Joplin rags, Brahms waltzes, and well... any waltz.

    I am more into the eastern style like Rachmaninov, Tchikovsky to name just two. I find a "soul" in the eastern music which is lacking in some of the more western style compositions.

    Reference the OP (that I found I coudn't quote because he/she is Hidden), I likewise love Chopin, and acquired a taste for Schumann in more recent years, as well as Schubert.

    My enduring love is for Mozart. And many of the Baroque composers who preceeded him. And some of his Classical contemporaries like Haydn. Even Mozart's inferior rival Clementi, whose works are more like keyboard exercises to me.

    I guess I favored composers I could play on the piano myself, who weren't overly technically challenging (and Chopin can definetely be, but some of his pieces are accessible to me). The later Romantics, although I love to listen to them, are mostly out of my range.

    The moody French Impressionists are not too difficult to play, for the most part.

    Tchaikovsky and Joplin are great. I also like Radu Lupu.
