Like the `Subject` says... who is your favorite composer, what I your favorite piece and why. I am interested to find out who all you guys here like. For me it must be a) Chopin and Rachmanninoff b) Chopin - Polonaise op 53 Etude no 9 op 25 (butterfly) Rachmanninoff- Piano Concertos 2 and 3 Why? Chopin - His wonderful tunefulness and clever harmonies. Rachmanninoff- Explination is beyond words. It touches your soul.

    I am primarily a clarinetist but with good piano experience as well. I`m all for Romantic era composers like Chopin. I too find his heroic polonaise opus 53 a tremendous and overwhelming piece. All his etudes are terrific as well, especially the tritese, torrent, black keys, revolutionary, butterfly, winter wind, and ocean etudes. (doesnt take a genius to figure out that his nicknamed etudes are the best). I like Gershwin`s Rhapsody in Blue as well. Not for the piano solo`s though but for the opening clarinet glissando and smear instead, lol. It`s a good embouchure and finger work out as well for us clarinetists. I play 5 times as a warmup excercise!

    Oh, I nearly forgot about Liszt... His "Mephisto Waltz" is mesmerizing... I wonder how much time you have to spend to learn to play the piano version?

    Gershwin- A Rhapsody in Blue (solo piano)... I can listen to it for hours and I wouldn`t get bored. Rachmaninov- Prelude in G minor... No comment needed... I might actually play it some day and Tchaikovsky- Piano Concerto 1... Perfection itself... When I listen to it and turn up the volume really loud this piece totally engulfs me...... Even my heart starts beating faster...

    Beethoven - Pathetique piano sonata I just like Beethoven as a composer, and I like classical very much. For the most part I like most of his works Chopin - Fantaisie-Impromptu, and Ballade No. 1 Very challenging and it`s very fun to listen to and play. Gershwin - Rhapsody In Blue I like the uniqueness of it, the piano part is wonderful and very neat to watch, listen and play. Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto 3 Just listen to it, it`s an amazing piece. Dvorak - Cello Concerto in B minor It`s very "wow" factor for me, I love the sound of a cello and this piece is just very well put together.
