What to play?

Post by Ekrax » Mon Dec 28, 2015 2:03 pm

Greetings everyone,
I am currently learning how to play piano for 7 years and I will have to play something on "graduation" concert. I am pretty young(14 yrs) and I was not really paying much attention to my piano skills until now. This year I started practising much more than other years.
So I am pretty bad (but I want to practise and learn new things) and I need something to play in that concert, can someone please reccomend any "songs"? I need something that sounds really good and skillful.
For your information (so you can recommend me something and can guess my low level skillvise) - I played J.S.Bach for ages - Book for A.M.Bach..some polonaises..., I played something from K.Slavický, something from Vesnyak (cant tell what cuz i dont understand it :D), I played something from Suk, I played Der Berggeist(le gnome) from Bertini and my latest is Storm from Bortkiewicz (Op.4, no.3) - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sP-OfqhLtkA (3:16).
I was browsing internet and finding things that were awesome, but i throught that i cant play them and I found this site. And now i beg you for help, please someone recommend me something.
I was thinking about:
River flows in you - Yiruma - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RE8cu1UUlmQ
In the hall of the mountain king - Edvard Grieg - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4RfOyTj6WxU
Ludovico Einaudi - Primavera - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fxW0pW_ ... 2737006321
Ludovico Einaudi - Divenire - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XV0__7yn_IQ
Fires of a revolution - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KNp-n9tbgBo (having ear orgasm while listening, but i will never be able to play that)

So please someone help me and recommend me something. Also I am really sorry for my english, I am not native speaker as you can see. I also hope that i didnt post this in the wrong forum. Everyone have a great day and if by chance you wanted to help, please do it.

Hi Ekrax,

This is probably coming a little too late but you might want to have a look at Takashi Yoshimatsu's Pleiades Dances. You can find the all on YouTube and the sheet music is available to by at various places on the web.
