    Default How much repertoire per a year for an aspiring pianist?

    I'm going into sophomore year. I have started learning Liszt's Un Sospiro, Chopin Op. 10 no 12, Beethoven 1, Waldstein Sonata, and Bach Prelude and Fugue no 5 from book 1. Is this enough for someone aspiring to become a professional pianist and to go to conservatory? If not, any suggestions for more repertoire? I'm limiting myself to 1 Beethoven sonata and 1 piano concerto as those are very large scale pieces, and I have other things to do (lol) Also, should I aim to join a pre-college program? I'm very close to many good conservatories as I live in NYC.

    If you're learning waldstein I'd give you should try liszt's campanella. I learnt it and I'd say it's easier than waldstein. I also learned waldstein. it's a great piece to learn but it's incredibly time consuming and if you're learning that many pieces it will be hard to practice all at once with quality.

    Whatever discipline you're in, it's better to do 5 things well than 10 things poorly.
