I am curious to know if there are here a few (or tons) of fans of piano music in the broadest possible sense:

 

- hard core classical music like Mozart, Haydn, Schubert

- contemporary classical like Debussy or Satie

- hard core avantgarde like Schönberg or Stockhausen

- so-called modern / minimal piano light ballades like Einaudi, Nyman, Glass

- Pop instrumentals (for piano...)

- Latin (salsa, tango, bossa nova...)

 

or any other category I am forgetting now

 

For instance, is there any K-pop for solo piano?

Hi, 

My playlist dark sad piano is now slowly gaining some followers. Not much 39 but every week a few people join. I don't mind adding a song from a pianist over here. If it's a sad or really dark song that is. That's the theme. 

Greetings Roberto

Hey DonSolare,

I've played the piano for over 15 years myself, so I am quite adept in the classical world of piano. I personally have loved the pieces composed by Franz Liszt and Frederic Chopin. The romantic era ones are just so lovely and dramatic. 

 

If you are looking for specific piece names, look these up when you have the time~~

Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2

La Campanella 

Un Sospiro

I am a big fan of the following pianists:

 

Piano Novel (Modern)

Dustin O'Halloran (Minimal)

Ludovico Einaudi (Modern)

Maurice Ravel (Hardcore Classical), one of my favorite pianists.

 

I am also an upcoming minimal pianist! I would be honored to receive any feedback or be placed on a playlist!

This song by The Town Hall has a crazy piano solo towards the end of it.

Hi, my favourite classics are Bach (transcription) and I love Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli performance, Beethoven, Saint Saens, Liszt, Schumann, Chopin... My modern preferences are Michael Nyman, Yann Tiersen, Philip Glass, Chad Lawson, Nils Frahm and many others discovered in Spotify and youtube. They influence me in my compositions, expecially the most emotional music that is near my feeligs. I recently recorded my first piano album "Suspended Souls" and I think it's about modern/minimalist genre. Look to my album, I really appreciate feedbacks forma future releases!

Classical piano music can be divided into music written for the piano and transcriptions of other music for the piano. I mentioned Bach transcriptions and piano sonatas last night. Besides the obvious transcriptions of organ or harpsichord music and other music for solo instruments are transcriptions of symphonies and other orchestral music.

 

Franz Liszt wrote piano transcriptions of all of Beethoven's symphonies. Here is the complete set in five albums:

The one drawback to Liszt's transcription of the 9th Symphony is the lack of the chorus, which is an integral part of that symphony. Fortunately, Richard Wagner included the chorus in his piano transcription of Beethoven's 9th:

One of my favorite orchestral works is Holst's Planets. Here is a transcription for it on one piano:

 

spotify:album:6cqQo5zaMpjz2ki9E1kNOE

 

And here is a transcription of it for two pianos:

 

spotify:album:2JF4pUl4ztxINTWjVt4mIE

 

A couple more favorites of mine are Stravinsky's Firebird and Rite of Spring. Here are piano transcriptions of both on one album:

Besides solo piano music, there are also singer/songwriters who play the piano, such as Tori Amos, Agnes Milewski, and Vienna Teng. And before them, there were the Carpenters, a brother/sister duo in which the brother played the piano and the sister sang.

 

And there is also piano jazz. I'm particularly a fan of Keiko Matsui and Hiromi Uehara, though I also listen to Bill Evans, Vince Guaraldi, Bob James, Chick Corea, and others.
