To start 2015, Masters Piano Performance Graduate of the ANU School of Music and staff member at Theme & Variations Sydney, Andrew Rumsey gives a list of the top 12 most beautiful piano pieces (in his opinion).


“For melodic and harmonic beauty, one really can’t go past the music of the ‘Romantic’ and ‘Impressionist’ periods.  Obviously this list won’t agree with everyone, but hopefully some of these selections will.  If you haven’t listened to every piece on this list, then it is about time that you do…happy listening!”
