A friend asked about the pieces I play on the piano. I thought, why not just post the list to my blog?
So here’s a couple of Youtube links. I found it quite interesting to explore different piano versions of the same piece. Most of these are actually not written for piano originally.
- Beethoven: Moonlight Sonata (blog post)
- Beethoven: Pathetiqe Sonata
- Chopin: Nocturne Op.9 No.2
- Theodorakis: Zorba’s Dance
- Gershwin: Summertime
- Bach: Toccata and Fugue in D Minor
- Rodríguez: La Cumparsita (blog post)
- Monk: Blue Monk
- Guaraldi: Lucy and Linus
- Chaplin: Smile (another one, super slow)
- Tchaikovsky: Dance of the sugar plum fairy
- Kosma: Autumn Leaves
- Rimsky-Korsakoff/Rachmaninov: Flight of the bumble bee (amazing version)
Enjoy. There’s no particular order. None of these links show me playing. I can’t play all of them any more either, nor did I play all entirely, and for some not much at all.
Please leave suggestions for new pieces in a comment below, if you have.
