I'm gonna buy some sheet music soon, BUT I'm not sure what to buy...
I have Chopin's Preludes and Rondos, which I bought when I was in Budapest several years ago. I absolutely love his work, the sound and.. yeah. Other than that I love Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata and Michael Nyman's The Sacrifice
So what I'm looking for... is music which is ... a bit like those. Something not too complicated as I'm only a beginner when it comes to reading notes, so still a bit slow with it. So yeah, something in that category sort of.

Hehe, so, does anyone here have any suggestions for me?

Thank you.

Find your inspiration and let it all out.

Loc: New York City
Chopin: Waltzes, Mazurkas
Beethoven:Eccosaisen, Bagatelles
Nyman:The Pianist(music from the movie)

All the above have some reasonably easy pieces(at the level of the easiest Preludes) mixed together with intermediate and much harder ones. Or you can get a book like "Chopin for Beginners"(I don't really know the title)if you want the entire book to be on your present level.

If you like Grieg, some of the Lyric Pieces are easy.

All these except Nyman are available for free here(biggest classical site on the web):

My first suggestion is to NOT buy ANYTHING. There are too many sites on which you can find sheet music for free.

1. http://www.pianofiles.com
2. http://www.music-scores.com

If you want something simple, Bach's Well Tempered Clavier Book 1 C major prelude
