NEW YORK, NY,
I'm trying to find some not-so-crazy-advanced-yet-somehow-impressive piano pieces for a show. Classical would be great but contemporary is cool too. Something fast paced.
Edit: Blah, to give you a sense of the stuff i'm looking for,
ehh this is a duet but i like it. youtube.com/watch?v=cs7XIkl3ntI

Check out 'Postcards From Far Away' by Coldplay. It's just piano, no other instruments or vocals. It's really lovely.

FORT WORTH, TEXAS,
You need to check out Nobuo Uematsu's works. He composes a lot of stuff for the Final Fantasy games series, but has piano versions of all the songs. Some are a lot more complicated than others. And most of his good works are slow. But geez... if I had any talent behind a piano, these are the songs I'd learn. Most of his pieces are just so pretty and romantic, while others express really varying moods. :] Also though, if you were looking for sheet music, your guess is as good as mine as to where to find it.youtube.com/watch?v=diAXTx8SlEc&feature=relatedyoutube.com/watch?v=d3mLj2iQir8&feature=relatedyoutube.com/watch?v=ztGpYhpkyos&feature=relatedyoutube.com/watch?v=YUmIC32Hx0c&feature=relatedyoutube.com/watch?v=41iEFursp30&feature=relatedyoutube.com/watch?v=EMg54zv6V3s&feature=relatedyoutube.com/watch?v=0CGjHexqqRs&feature=relatedyoutube.com/watch?v=c4Tq0k-9c6E&feature=related

I heard someone do this song before, it was really pretty.
The first movement of Mozart's piano sonata No.8 in A minor (K310). Its pretty advanced really but I love playing it and it would be soooo great for a performance :D

Struggle for peasure from Wim Mertens , it's kinda stif but it sounds so nice !
Haha I know how to play every song :)
haha me too actually xD i love the soundtrack
bahh! i like this! i think i'll give it a shot. i'll come to you if i need help :3
ohhhhh left hand. i've only had a little experience with fastness there and it was some of Bach's stuff. do you know any exercises for that?
Ohhh yes, the left is tricky!! If you play Mozart often then you will have experience of the alberti base so that should be too difficult but the long semiquaver runs with the chords in the right will probably require special attention! I would say the best way to approach it is to learn the sequence of notes off by heart and work out some good fingering (especially if you have little hands like me). I would recommend starting off slowly and gradually building the speed up and you could try practicing hands separately as well as together. Also running through a book of scales might help to get your fingers moving. Other than that you just have to practice over and over, and listening to the piece always helps :)
ps. I love Bach btw!! Have you ever listened to the Goldberg Variations? They're beautiful, I'm learning the Aria and the first Variatio atm :)
