Listening List and Composer Resource


by John M. Zeigler, Ph.D. and Nancy Ostromencki
Rio Rancho, NM USA


ollowing is a list of important piano repertoire that we feel most piano students should become familiar with at some point in their studies. You should always follow the advice of your piano teacher as to the repertoire that is appropriate for you and your level of skill, but hearing this music is important in getting a basic overview of some of the important elements of the piano literature. We think you'll find that your piano teacher will be supportive of your listening to these works.

You can find out about each of the composers of these works by clicking on the Biography link next to the composer's name. Both the biographies and the musical works themselves will open in a new window or tab, so that you can come back here easily to listen to or learn more. Simply close the new windows as you finish with them.

MIDI sequences of many of them can be played just by clicking on the underlined titles. You can also find MIDI sequences of of these and several additional works on The Piano Education Page - The Audition Room page, in addition to listings of the sequencers of these works, where known. For more extensive collections of MIDI music files of all kinds, check out The Classical MIDI Resource. While the MIDI sequences generally don't do full justice to the same pieces played on an acoustic piano, we hope that you'll like them enough to want to play them yourself and obtain recordings of renditions on the piano.


keyinfo.gif (1045 bytes)To download a music file to your computer for later playing,  just right click on the underlined work you want to download, choose Save As.. or Save Target As... from the resulting pop-up menu, pick a directory from the resulting dialogue, and click OK to save the file to your hard disk. Most PC users should be able to play the files offline by opening the Windows Explorer, finding the stored file and then double-clicking on the file name.
