Ours was “In the Hall of the Mountain King” (Peer Gynt) , “Nutcracker” and “Grand Canyon Suite”. We would BEG for Dad to play those!
Oh, and we danced too! Good times.
btw, my 24 yr old daughter texted me last night wanting to know which version of “Romeo and Juliet” I played for her when she was growing up. (Prokofiev)
Oh I LOVED Peer Gynt! And I loved SCARY music like “Danse Macabre”, “Night on Bald Mountain”, and “Symphonie Fantastique”!
I didn’t get into Mozart till recently, as a pianist. bac then, I liked it Bombastic, Loud, and in a minor key. (I was a weird little kid! hahaha!)
