I've done grade 8 now, and I'm looking at new pieces to get started on.
Can anyone suggest anything along the same lines as Rachmaninov's Prelude in G minor, Brahams Rhapsody in G minor, and the third movement of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata?
I.e, minor, fastish pieces which are quite passionate?
Some Beethoven sonatas I can think of that fit your criteria:
No. 1 in F minor, Op. 2 No.1 (movt. 4)
No. 5 in C minor, Op. 5 No. 1 (movt. 1, 3)
No. 8 in C minor (Pathétique), Op. 13 (1, 3)
No. 17 in D minor (Tempest), Op. 31 No. 2 (3)
No. 23 in F minor (Appassionata), Op. 57 - this might be too difficult to tackle yet.
With Chopin, there is of course his Fantasie Impromptu. You might want to try some of his études, although some are very difficult. Perhaps Op. 10 No. 12 (Revolutionary) and Op. 25 No. 12 (Ocean). All 3 are minor, fast and passionate
. You could have a look at his first Ballade in G minor. There are also various preludes and mazurkas but I'm afraid I don't know much about them.
Discuss with your teacher if you have one as I can't think of much more.
