What similar classical pieces that sound like Frederic Chopin Piano Concerto No.2 in F minor Op.21?

Asked by niki (699 points ) November 29th, 2010

Basically, I’m looking for a piano concerto pieces that sounds MINOR (not Major), full of emotions, also grief, but at the same time also sounding dark and INTENSE, that when you play the Piano part, people can go like “wow..that’s cool!!”, because it’s dark, minor, full of shivering feelings/emotions, and FAST!!

Here’s the Youtube link to this awesome concerto:

Pay attention to the piano part starting from minute 03:07 until so on. that’s really the ‘coolest’ part!!
I’m really really looking for these similar classical pieces to listen and play in piano.

thanks a lot!

You may like Rachmaninoff’s Prelude op 3. no. 2 – hope you’ve got a wide stretch though… The agitato passage in the middle sounds great played fast :-)

Try the first movement of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 30 or the first movement of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18.

I’m visiting my aunt who is a pianist so I consulted her. She suggested Brahm’s Piano Concerto in D Minor the piano comes in at about 3:43 I think.

and

Chopin’s Scherzo No. 2 Opus 31 It’s not entirely dark throughout the whole thing but you might like it.

That’s all she could remember off the top of her head.

And I was thinking about George Gershwin’s Concerto in F

It’s an interesting piece and the mood is a little hard to pin down. It’s not exactly what you’re looking for but I like it and thought I’d put in a plug for it. :-)

I really like Chopin’s Revolutionary Etude – may not be the exact mood you’re looking for, but it’s pretty much metal. If metal was played on a piano.

How about Chopin’s 1st piano concerto in E minor? That’s a great piece.
