piano fun

wow. I am very surprised to find videos of Andre Watts on YouTube. Here is a lovely find: Listz's La Campanella. And here is another wonderful piece Beethoven's Op. 31 no. 2 in D minor first movement there; check out the third movement too.

Surely everyone is familiar with Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. The first movement is most familiar, but all are good. The third movement is spectactular.
first movement Wilhelm Kempff on a Steinway & Sons
second movement
third movement

And any Chopin you pick would be nice. Here's one just at random:
Piano Sonata No. 2 and here with Andre Watts.

Invention #14
Ravel's beautiful
Pavane Pour Une Infante Defunte
Schubert's Op. 90 No. 11
one of many variations of
Pachelbel's Canon in D
my favorite Richard Clayderman piece:
A Comme Amour
a popular Paul de Senneville/Richard Clayderman piece:
Ballade pour Adeline
MacArthur Park seems like a really fun piece
Michel Legrand
Windmills of Your Mind
Henry Mancini
Somewhere in Time

Not piano, but one to leave you energized:
Yolanda Adams Victory
