Man, those songs are a piece of cake compared to this one. I'd like to raise some questions about playability here...XD


Ahh, good old 3D Land...Maestro could play this, right? Right?

I remember hitting Maestro up about recording the first book of NALAC (Nintendo A la Cziffra), then just decided not to (though technically I only talked to him about one), as I've found many of them have little sections that simply aren't playable, even with concert pianist technique.
For instance, the thumbnail that's coming up has 16th octaves with only one black key, near impossible depending on tempo.
It's very easy to create flashy effects in Finale, they don't always translate well to the keyboard though.

Yea, the way it's written, this one has a tempo of 80-90 BPM. Still, it's probably impossible. Well, I don't know. Maybe there's someone out there that can. But that's doubtful.

One of my favorites from PMD2. I think the four independent layers intimidated me for a while, but let's give this one a real try...

That's such a lovely piece. I know I've been a music major for a long time because I'm actually starting to love Bach.

Typically you can tell which pianists know the least about piano--they're the ones who are most obsessed with Chopin.

I'd say that's more accurate from a theory standpoint than a performance standpoint (where chopin wins because, well, he actually composed for the piano.) But yeah, Bach is my all time favorite composer. His music has so much more depth to it than that of the works of any other composer.

Just because one is a lover of Chopin (such as myself) doesn't mean they don't also play Bach, and Beethoven, and all the rest that many only pretend to love to sound intelligent. That said, that also happens with Chopin.
It's also worth noting that Chopin, in his later works, used counterpoint just as Bach did. Check out the final movement of the B minor sonata.
The ones who know least about the piano are the ones most obsessed with the Fantasie Impromptu  ::)

IDK it just seems to me like all the kiddie freshmen coming in think they're pretentious because they know how to play Chopin, but as they go on they realize that he's one of the most cliche, formulaic and (in many cases) dull composers, haha. But yeah, Bach's music is incredibly neat to study.

Honestly though I think my fav is Debussy. Every single one of his works is completely fascinating.

Oh to clarify though, I don't think Chopin is unimportant and his works are lovely. But I don't understand pianists who say he's their favorite composer.

Chopin is the corny "The piano is my voice, and I shall express my soul through it" composer. So that, along with being really showy, kinda creates the whole annoying, pretentious Chopin cult. I do agree that there's reasons to enjoy him though.

Chopin is singular in his music as he was few who did his own thing, paying no mind to what his predecessors or contemporaries were doing, I've always preferred Liszt myself.
