    Not sure all of these count as "working on." Some I am just trying to keep under my fingers and in my memory. Others I'm currently butchering

    Schumann: "Des Abends" and "Aufschwung" from Phantasiestücke, Op. 12
    Debussy: "Les sons et les parfumes tournent dans l'air du soir" (Prelude, Bk. 1, IV)
    Beethoven: Sonata Op 2. #1, Largo e mesto from Op. 10 #3
    Prokofiev: Pastoral Sonatina
    Schubert: Sonata in A ("Little")
    Brahms: Opus 118 no. 2

    Your frogs make me shudder with intolerable loathing and I shall be miserable for the rest of my life remembering them.

    That's quite an impressive repertoire! Do any of these tie into your scholarly projects, or is this a separate endeavor? I personally often like to practice pieces that I'm currently analyzing, but I know that other theorists/musicologists like to keep the two domains fairly separate.

    The only work I'm likely to write about on that list is the Largo e mesto from Op. 10 #3 (one of my favorite movements by Beethoven). The Schumann, Prokofiev and Brahms I am working up for the first time. The others I played in the past and am now "reviving."

    The works in which I have a scholarly interest, or about which I've already written, are mostly ones I wouldn't be able to play. But I would if I could.

    On Schubert's Part songs, my mother group got another invite to perform later this year and I am playing the piano.

    I'm at a very beginner level because I am learning to read music. I normally play everything by ear but I felt it was time to bite the bullet and learn to read from a book.
    This is a piece I'm working on called Gavotte, even tho it doesn't begin on the 3rd beat.

    I'm playing the right notes, but not necessarily in the right order!

    Mozart Piano Sonata no. 12 K 432. I prefer the first edition version vs. the less elaborate autigraph. Most of the differences effect the second movement, but the small tweaks in the outer movements are improvements as well. The last movement is a bit tricky, but it is falling into place.

    My favourite Mozart sonata. Small point: it's K332 - you never know when you might need the details for a recital programme.

    A personal favorite of mine as well. Best of luck on your progress!

    After a brief and unsatisfying trip to the guitar, I've going back to the piano and working on my "repertoire":

    1) Beethoven's "Moonlight" Sonata first movement

    2) Chopin's Prelude No. 20

    3) Bach's Invention No.1

    3) CPE Bach's "Solfeggietto"

    Next up, Brahms' Sarabande No.2 or possibly Rachmaninov's Musical Moment No.5 unless my teacher thinks it too hard!

    I'm working on Shosty's Preludes and Fugues, no. 5 right now.

    And Grieg's Lyric pieces, op. 13 & op. 38 because I wanted something I could play over and over and use as a sort of meditation. Highly recommended.

    Currently learning Chopin's étude on 6ths, his second ballade and reworking Liszt's Gnomenreigen.
