When our choir is on break, our church has guest musicians (usually one of our members) who fills in with a short musical piece. I have occasionally taken the bench for this in the past and so I'm always on the lookout for a short, interesting piece to learn. This past week I heard a very nice 2-minute or so piece on an old "Piano Classics" tape my wife has had for several years... and the more I played it, the more I fell in love with it and was convinced this was going to make a great piece for the church. But the stupid tape didn't have the names of the works on it and we no longer had the original cassette box!! Argh!

When I got home I figured I'd try to find the playlist on the Internet. This proved to be MUCH more difficult than I had thought but after a solid hour of searching I finally ran across the playlist on an obscure English site. And to my horror I discovered the name of the piece:

"Erotic" by Grieg

Well won't that look just great in the church bulletin. Is this really the name of the work?

Incidentally, I found another Lyric Piece during my search in the mp3 catalog that I really like: "Arietta" (op12 #1). Has anyone played this? It's very lovely.

I suppose you could just call it Greig Lyric Pieces, Book 3, Opus 43: No. 5 but these folks thought it was right for Sunday:

Title: Music for Sunday Brunch
Label: Columbia River Entertainment
Wedding Dance "Slatter" Op. 72 - Bridal March to Myllarguten (Grieg); Sospiri - Adagio Op. 70 (Elgar); Water Music, Suite - Andante expressivo (Handel); Peer Gynt Suite No. 2 Op. 55 - Solveig's song (Grieg); Canon in D major (Pachelbel); Nocturno in E flat major (Field); Lyric Pieces Op. 43 - Erotic (Grieg); Piano Concerto No. 21 "Elvira Madigan" - Andante (Mozart); Water Music, Suite - Air (Handel); Lyric Pieces Op. 12 - Arietta (Grieg); Thais: Meditation (Massenet); Moonlight Sonata in C sharp minor Op. 27/2 - Adagio sostenuto (Beethoven); Pavane for a Dead Princess (Ravel)

The Arietta is indeed a very nice piece, and not difficult to learn. Go ahead with it.
I recently found a website with some sheet music of the Grieg lyric pieces, including the Arietta http://www.bb.wakwak.com/~oguri/grieg/indexe.html
seems to be a Japanese site!!

Since I will go on vacation next week, I am looking forward to play as much and when I like, so I got a stock of pieces I want to try, besides the pieces I have to exercise for lessons. Some of the Lyric pieces are on top of the list.
Wish you a good performance in your church!

Regards
Ruth

Thank you, Ruth, for that reply and the link. As for you, Brandon.... :rolleyes:

BTW Brandon... let me know when I can come hear you play. If you want to email me, I'm at [my piano forum user name]@yahoo.com

(Maybe a little too spam-cautious, but you never know... \:D )
