Sorry about that: http://imslp.org/wiki/Rigoletto_%28Verdi%2C_Giuseppe%29

Break the beat into fourths (sixteenths) so you count 1-e-+-a (one-ee-and-ah).
So the LH comes down on 1-e-+ and then holds through the a(ah) until the next down beat. Hope that makes sense.
Love songs, doesn't each individual classical(i know it's a broad term to use) piece have love and sentimentality embedded into it. You might try Liszt's Valse Impromptu or or his Transcedental Etude no 10. Schumann's introduction and Allegro opus 92. Chopin's ballade opus 23 no 1, or his Nocturne opus 27 no 1. My personal favorite which is often seen as devilish, but is extraordinarily meaningful in my opinion, is Scriabin's Sonata opus 53 no 5. You could always give Schubert's Serenade a crack though, because it isn't awfully technical and lord knows it is quite a composition.
That's about all i can give off the top of my head. Have a good one, friend...
I see that you have recently joined the site. Welcome! And with time you will begin to understand everyone's skill from the prolific contributors, to the once-a-quarter virtuosos, and to the regular peanuts like me. I would enjoy playing Chopin's ballades, or Liszt's etudes or even the Schubert piece, but I cannot because I know my skill level and these compositions are out of my league.
Even this Quartet piece is giving me trouble (partly because I never heard it before).
Anyways, welcome to the site and thank you for your suggestions even if they fall short of making an impression :wink:
:lol: I'm not that prolific :lol: I agree that the etude and Valse impromptu of liszt are quite demanding.
Why not try Scriabin's Sonata opus 2 no 19 first movement? The second movement is insane but the first is incredibly beautiful and rather easier. The second movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata is awfully good also(i know i'm sorry for pulling out such an obvious piece). And forgive me for seeming so frank, but Clair De Lune of course would fit wonderously. Sibelius also wrote some rather romantic piano pieces. Mendolsohnn's first piano concerto is also a favorite. Please correct me if none of these are appropriate.
Piece #1 in the latest game is a Romance. It is quite easy, technically.
