would this work: Chopin, op.22/57/35 as 1st half, after the break op.25, my concern is between op.22 and 35, will the Berceuse have a chance there?

I think that the Berceuse could hold its own just about anywhere. I wouldn't have a problem with it between the Opp. 22 and 35.

Not for me, but then I couldn't sit through an all Chopin recital whatever order the pieces were in.

Sure, if you really like Chopin.

Absolutely.

but, after the break, the whole of op. 25? depending on the audience and the occasion, that may be a bit much.

In any recital presentation, I seem to be unfailingly a big fan of contrast. In that context, the Berceuse serves IMO as an IDEAL candidate between 22 and 35. Would definitely elect for it!

sometimes a program is requested, one dutifully tries to oblige, in this case a full Chopinrecital, ok, what has one ready, what is one prepared to prepare, what is in one's own interest to add to the rep., and what makes a good program, all these questions pop up now and then, and as a slave to the industry of concertmanagers et al. one does what one can. I'm glad the berceuse doesn't seem to get annihilated between the other items, and , yes, the whole of op.25, last time was all of op.10, next time will be opp.10 +25 haha.

if you're talking about the length it's only around 35 minutes.

op.22 + 57 + 35 take (in my performance): 45 min, op.25 30 min, quite the normal length of a recital/concert.

No, i didn't mean the length, the length is fine. I thought that playing only etudes, might be a too little variation for some audiences. While I prefer to buy (and have bought) CD's with complete series only, in a recital i could see a mix of the shorter stuff (preludes, etudes, nocturnes, waltzes, mazurkas), or perhaps another polonaise or a scherzo.

It is quite common to perform a complete set of Chopin Etudes in recital, and there is great variety within the Etudes in either set.
