Well, I'm just thinking ahead a little. I am going to have the music for my senior recital (the end of May) ready probably by the end of January, and I'm thinking about putting all or at least some of it away for a while and working on new/different stuff. I want to give a recital of all new stuff which I haven't played next... November or so I think. So far, I'm definitely planning on playing the "little" A Major Schubert sonata, and the 1st Vine sonata (tentatively for now. I'm getting the score soon as a christmas present from my girlfriend, so I won't really know if it's realistically... realistic until I actually look over the score). Any ideas to go with those pieces which you think would compliment well? So far I've been thinking that I don't know why, but something Scriabin seems like it would compliment Schubert somehow. Idk what Scriabin I would play though... anyway, it's all up for grabs. Any ideas??

Yes, I too think that Scriabin and Schubert complement well. You could choose a selection of the early preludes (contrasting with the Schubert's larger form). Alternatively, since you are up to the demanding Vine's sonata, you could also feel like undertaking some of Scriabin's etudes from opp.8, 42 & 65. You have several months ahead, so enough time to digest them. Scriabin wrote also many delightful piano pieces which may be worth investigating.

If interested in Scriabin, I'd suggest...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EfggmQFaRi0 - Poeme Satanique.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pA4j6dvpTXw - Etude Op. 8, No. 3 (Aside from D# Minor, no. 12, this is by far my favorite of the set)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7Ozua-mG80 - Prelude in G# Minor, Op. 16, No. 2 (the first recording in the video), beautiful piece. A bit harder to learn than I anticipated simply because I've never been good at the 4 on 5 rhythm at the start. :(
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uv_xN8HA ... L&index=28 - Prelude in D Minor, Op. 11, No. 24. AWESOME piece. Very passionate, very epic. And quite the handful to master. :wink:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ecJue0-TMQA - Etude in F Minor, Op. 42, No. 7. Beautiful. :)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZmu6UaXXsI - Etude in F# Minor, Op. 42, No. 2. Haunting. :)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VVnGDo8G ... re=related - Etude in F# Major, Op. 42, No. 3. Insect-y. :)
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOCjpgDWXG8 - Prelude in F Minor, Op. 11, No. 18. Stormy and rage-filled. BEAUTIFUL!!! :D
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZEsHv3SO ... re=related - Prelude in E-Flat Minor, Op. 11, No. 14 - Quite the interesting piece to learn. Very intense.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=faUu6utT ... re=related - Prelude in B Minor, Op. 11, No. 6. Remind me of Chopin's G Minor Prelude for some reason? :shock:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iCmhffv9 ... re=related - Prelude in C Major, Op. 11, No. 1. Sheer beauty, literally soaring through the air on the winds of the gods. <3


.... I just realized that there are another 30 + pieces I have an urge to list off-hand. I should really stop now before I get out of control. >_>
