What was your biggest and most memorable experience concerning piano playing?

Mine was probably to play Ballade 1 in front of an audience for the first time, they were so impressed. Smile

A year ago, I played in my fourth public recital. Guess what I played? Bach's Goldberg Variations, "Partita di Signore Steltzeln" from the W. F. Bach Notebook, & Variations on an Air in the Italian Manner. I also played two Chopin Mazurkas & my own transcription of Delibes' Mazurka #3 from Coppelia as encores. I was so proud Smile.

Phillip, you played the complete Goldberg, or just a few variations? I'd be impressed.

Anyways, I haven't any great experience in piano playing. Though I have a few memorable piano experiences, they are not very impressive.

I never had a really defining moment or great performance. I only play in those yearly recitals for a few minutes, and a few times for the piano class at school, but nothing great.

I played at my school's graduation in 2001 in front of about 500 people. At that time, I wasn't much of an accomplished pianist, so I only played Für Elise. Went quite well though Smile

My most memorable experience would probably have to be playing at two weddings and of course, winning the piano star award; it's quite an honour to win that award here and I was thrilled. Smile

Well, I did my first public performance 3 years ago. I played Brahms trios with someother friends in front of 500-600 people. They were impressed. It was a really good and memorable night. It was like a competition. Our ensemble played Brahms trios for like 1 hour. Then the other group came, they played Schubert "Trout" quintet. Then as encore, one of my friends played caprice no.24 (the famous one) from Paganini, and I played Beethoven Op.10.1 in Cminor (1st movement). It was really great. Razz

I played the whole thing, right down to the ever-famous quodlibet and the aria d a capo Smile.
I'm going to play the complete Art of the Fugue in my next Bach recital in November.

Oh, I remember that back in CF! You're very naturally gifted when it comes to improvisation Wink.

I remember it also. The improvisation was quite good, with a lot of "fury". The piano sounded weird though.
