(preferably not trios, since I have a violist friend
) which are doable for someone around DipABRSM/aspiring LRSM level? I like Mozart (but nobody would want to play it with me),
Mozart K498 - Kegelstatt Trio - find yourself a tame clarinet player!
I would love to play Kegelstatt, or either of the piano quartets, for that matter, but somehow nobody else my age wants to play Mozart
I will take a look at Faure op. 15 (and a closer look at Schumann/Dvorak to see if I might be able to get my fingers around them more than I had thought)
I'm almost afraid to ask, but is Shostakovich op. 57 playable? Aforementioned violist friend wants to play it and suggested it to me - I nixed it because a) I usually don't like Shostakovich, and b) I uniformly associate Shostakovich with insane difficulty
But after giving it a listen, I found that I enjoyed it, and even more surprisingly that the piano part seems somewhat doable - lots of unison playing. Do you folks think it would be manageable (at sub-Argerich tempos, of course!
), or am I deluding myself?
