classical piano music

!work in progess!

please, give me some time to finish this list of my favourites in classical piano music.

my original plan was to record each piece by myself. i gave up after a few since it seemed to be incompatible with my life expectancy. instead i picked some fabulous recordings from professional pianists.

in the first column publication dates are given. they may differ significantly from the date of composition.

as an amateur i find it extremly helpful to use music sheets with fingering. i prefer them over more popular edititons.

now, off to practice ...

the main list covers all pieces for two hands without orchestra, including transcriptions
