What does your repertoire include? Specifically, does it include all the 'important' pieces you have played, or does it include just the pieces you are learning right now? For example, I learned a few Mozart sonatas a few years ago, but I don't think I can play them now without a lot of practice. Would my repertoire include that?

Also, does anyone know any other good music/pianor message boards?

A few weeks ago, there was a thread on here about repertoire. Try loooking there. Some of the people here have large repertoire. As for other piano forums, sorry, can't help you there.

A while ago, i made a list of everything I've ever played (major pieces), and the list was like 50-60 something pieces. However, I know that I cannot possibly review all of them and learn new pieces at the same time. So my question is, are the pieces I do not review (but I knew very, very well) part of my repertoire or not?

Edit:

My repertoire is child's play compared to Ryan's, Alex's, or Andrew's. I also don't practice these pieces regularly; mostly I rework them when I need them or inbetween learning new rep.

I think one's repertoire refers only to pieces which could at least be made ready for performance in a short time. Perhaps within this group of pieces you could think of core repertoire as those pieces which you could sit down and play any time and give a reasonable account of. I don't think every piece you've ever learnt thoroughly counts as repertoire. I agree with you that it's not realistic to try to maintain a large number of pieces at the expense of exploring new pieces. For most of us I imagine there's little need, as attractive as the idea of having a large repertoire is.
