Ive been mostly playing classical music, with only few exception.

I would love if you could suggest me some sad pieces:) Or maybe some christmas pieces, but not the religious ones \:\)

Oh, i can play at grade 6 level (Shubert impromptu op.90 no.2, Mozart Rondo alla turca,... But i dont mind if its easier:))

I really like and have been working on Vince Guaraldi's "Christmas Time is Here" from A Peanuts Christmas.

A sad song that's also sort of a Christmas song is Joni Mitchell's "River" (performed here by Herbie Hancock & Corinne Bailey Rae) .

Schumann's Traumerei I believe falls under that melancholy genre easily. Scriabin's 2 page etude op. 2 is also quite sad in mood. I don't think they are hard either. I trust you can manage with practice. =)

OH! That one makes me cry every time I hear it sung by Joni!

My current favorite sad piano piece is the Adagio in G Minor originally attributed to Albinoni, but actually written by Remo Giazotto in 1958. I also love Mahler's "Adagietto."

I have posted this song before, but if you want a beautiful but sad Christmas-themed sad song, I highly recommend Midori Karashima's heart-tugging song, Silent Eve. It includes a lovely piano part.

Silent Eve

Silent Eve (Live)

Another two of her hits in which she soars are Anata No Ai Ni Naritai and Soba Ni Itai

I second Shubert's traumerei, it's absolutely beautiful. I love it.

Another song that's quite simple but nice is Grieg's Study in E minor.

It's very very short too so it's easy to learn.

Oh and I suddenly remembered Keith Jarrett's Over the Rainbow.
You can find the sheet music on the net for free for this one and it's absolutely amazing.
