My musical interest is eclectic, but my recent new interest is classical piano. (There may be a better term. I'm not sure.)
I love these popular ones: (Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven and Nocturne? by Chopin)
I'd like to find more that are similiar. Ones that are about this same pace, octave, feeling...that beautiful forlorn feeling.
Do you know of any? What are your favorites? I like strictly piano.
Beethoven wrote that while pining over some girl that rejected him. I love that piece, I can't really think of anything that compares with it.
Fur Elise is fairly similar. I like that too.
I just started playing Saties Gymnopedies aswell.
Fur Elise is a little more upbeat (I think) than I'm looking for, but I agree on the sonata. It's so beautiful and it stands on its own. It fits my current mood. I'll look up Saties
Sometimes I think it is a shame that there are no brand new 19th century composers...
There's not? I was just sitting here thinking about that actually I really am just a few days new into this genre. I've always loved it, but Ive never spent time getting to know it. I was thinking (not knowing if there were any modern artists)...how I don't think we have the minds to even know how to create in this way any more .....to pull from inspiration like they did. I think it's just beyond our current abilities.
Here is a modern piece by Carter Burwell that I think you will appreciate. I think it fits the genre you are searching for.

Okay, so you're looking for piano music that sounds like Moonlight Sonata, in the sense that it's peaceful, soft, romantic... you want Chopin. Chopin is often called The Poet of The Piano. That's all he ever wrote - piano music. You might also want to check out Brahms and Schumann's piano music. You have to go for the Romantic composers, not Baroque or Neoclassical. And of course, don't forget to listen to my music (Clara Wieck's piano music - the REAL Clara Wieck Schumann, I mean).
Mozart and Schubert or Bach is similar to Beethoven. :)Quite classical with sensitivity and an electrifying performance. Enjoy.
If you want to hear some beautiful yet furious classical piano music. Beethoven and Chopin are at the top. For sheer passion and virtuosity you must hear Beethoven's "Appassionata" Sonata (all three movements). ON the other hand Chopin's Etudes are mini jewels of all kinds of piano techniques with wonderful melodies..they are short pieces and yet dynamic as well. Should be available on youtube...before you buy.

This brought tears and I'm not a crier...sheesh
Edit: I just realized this isn't what you suggested, but still a great find. lol
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEptNFzLpjk This one was fun....there's so much back and forth...almost exhausting. lol
John Field was a precursor to Chopin and so his compositions are quite similar. For some of the same beautiful forlorn feeling, try Khatchaturian, Debussy, Ravel, and Rachmaninoff. You won't like everything these composers wrote, but you'll like a lot of it!
Oh I can't wait to search these out! I'm going to dive in tomorrow when I'm off. Thanks to you both!!
