I think hymns are great for sight-reading!  You can improve your understanding of harmony and practise your legato pedalling at the same time -- my old piano teacher made all her pupils do this.

All 6 Satie Gnossiennes

Bartok 3 Rondos

Satie Pieces in Pear Form - a duet that should be good fun

 

I'm still polishing the Chopin Nocturne Op 72, 1 E minor, seems to be taking forever..............

 

I break up from work today so looking forward to lots of piano time whilst I'm off biggrin.pngpiano.gif

The Gnossiennes are really good, albeit very odd! I performed 1-4 in concert last year. I like 5 and 6 but they do feel a bit like outliers!

I had my first lesson of the year yesterday and have officially started my 40 Piece Challenge for 2019. To start, I am working on Traumerei, the first movement of Mozart K.545, and Willie Wagglestick’s Walkabout.
