List of Recommendations: Advanced Level 2

Approximately 70 recommended pieces which are studied by students in Japanese colleges and graduate schools of music, also popular for concerts. Many of them are played at piano competitions and auditions, as well as at graduation and course completion exams. Although piano solos are sometimes combined with the “core” pieces, they are recommended advanced pieces which can also be played at concerts as solo piano pieces.

The pieces are listed in the order of the composers’ birth years.

Sonatine and sonatas of which the specific number of the movement is not indicated mean they include all.

Length of performance is just a rough idea.
Depending on whether there are repetitions or not, it may get long or short.
