Hello everyone

I'm looking for modern or contemporay suite or work (except sonata) with higher difficult rate. Like Ginastera's Sonata. Please let me know your thoughts.

Thanks

There's this:

and there's also this:

there's this (brand new, composed in 2012) which has no recording yet: http://www.musica-ferrum.com/catalog/viewitem.php?show=37 (and I can promise you that it's extremely challenging).

I have a feeling that I've shown these pieces to you again, but in either way I hope you don't mind...

I'm a big fan of Rzewski's 4 pieces, certainly worthy of consideration.

Thanks Nikolas for taking a listen and commenting, I really appreciate that. I hope you have a great composing year in 2013.
I'm grateful to the excellent pianists that have put so much work into learning my pieces over the years.

MiguelSousa:

First, I apologize for not being able to direct you properly to where you may source the suite I am recommending you. I have 2 recordings of the work and I think it is marvelous, and it actually may be just what you're looking for!

Yorgos Sicilianos - Eight Children's Miniatures

Sorry for not being able to think of anything else at the moment. If you find where to purchase this, I'd be interested as well. =)

William (and Miguel). since I'm Greek (And Sicilianos is also Greek), I am able to grab the score(s) for you and send them over! I know a place which holds the score, but I'm not sure it ships to Ecuador...

So if you want let me know and I can get it, send you the score, and then you pay me (paypal please, or wire transfer. No checks), the score price + shipping charges. For the record the score appears to cost 10.90 euros (so around 14$) and shipping would be around 2.50 euros (3$)...

If interested let me know and I can get to the town centre today to grab it for you...
