2017.01.15.: Chopin Nocturne C-sharp minor Op. Posth.

Composer: Chopin Performer: László Leber
Movie:

About the piece: The Nocturne No. 20 in C-sharp minor, Op. posth., Lento con gran espressione, P 1, No. 16, KKIVa/16, is a solo piano piece composed by Frédéric Chopin in 1830 and published in 1870. Chopin dedicated this work to his older sister, Ludwika Chopin, with the statement: "To my sister Ludwika as an exercise before beginning the study of my second Concerto".[1][2] First published 26 years after the composer's death, the piece is usually referred to as Lento con gran espressione, from its tempo marking. It is sometimes also called Reminiscence.[3][4] The piece was famously played by Holocaust survivor Natalia Karp for the Nazi concentration camp commandant Amon Goeth, with Goeth being so impressed with the rendition, that he spared Karp's life.
Comment:
This is the 2. nocturne that I learned from Chopin. I hope, you enjoy it :) I think, this is one of the darkest Nocturne from Chopin, but the most beautiful as well :)

2016.10.23.: Franz Liszt - La Campanella

Composer: Franz Liszt Performer: László Leber
Movie:

About the piece: "La campanella" (Italian for "The little bell") is the nickname given to the third of Franz Liszt's six Grandes études de Paganini ("Grand Paganini Études"), S. 141 (1851). It is in the key of G-sharp minor. This piece is a revision of an earlier version from 1838, the Études d'exécution transcendente d'après Paganini, S. 140. Its melody comes from the final movement of Niccolò Paganini's Violin Concerto No. 2 in B minor, where the tune was reinforced by a little handbell.
Comment:
This is my practice of Liszt's La Campanella. It's a really hard piece which is actually not in my skill level, because I have been playing piano only for 3+ years, but i love this piece and I learned one more part after my previous video in 2015. So here is the part1 + part2

2015.01.01.: Curly Sue - They cut my hair

Composer: Georges Delerue Performer: László Leber
Movie:

About the piece:

Georges Delerue was born 12 March 1925 in Roubaix, France to Georges Delerue and Marie Lhoest. He was raised in a musical household; his grandfather lead an amateur chorale group and his mother sang and played piano at family gatherings. By the age of fourteen he was playing clarinet at the local music conservatory. In 1940 he was forced to abandon his studies at the Turgot Institute in order to work at a factory to help support his family. He continued playing clarinet with local bands, eventually transitioning to piano under the instruction of Madame Picavet-Bacquart. He studied Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, and Grieg, and was particularly inspired by Richard Strauss. Following a long convalescence after being diagnosed with scoliosis, Georges decided to become a composer.

You can download the sheet music from here: Curly_sue.pdf

Curly Sue is one of my sister's favorite movie. This song is composed by Georges Delerue for the movie. I searched for the sheet music everywhere, but i didn't find it, so i made my own arrangement. I'm beginner in piano-playing(I have been playing piano only for 5 months now), but i always train myself.
