    Default The Monster Concerto

    Keyboard forum is a little barren lately Maybe a stupid question will help

    In the golden age of pianists, there would sometimes be a mash up of concerto movements performed as one concerto. So, my question is:

    If you could mix around the movements of every piano concerto ever written to form one monster concerto (3-4 movements all by different composers), what would you come up with?


    I thought about it for awhile and here's what I came up with, I could probably do 100 of these.
    Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto 1 Mov. 1
    Beethoven Piano Concerto 4 Mov. 2
    Pierne Piano Concerto Mov. 3

    Busoni-Busoni-Busoni. That concerto may not be a monster, but it's pretty big.
    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    I'd just picked up Shostakovich's second movement from the second concerto and let it be as the most excellent romantic single forever ... No other movements for me.
