Between Learning Bach and Beethoven for Piano

I just started learning piano a month ago. So far, I’ve only touched two pieces. I can now play the Bach Prelude in C, BWV 846.

And I’m now about 1/3 of the way through the first movement of Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata.

There’s a lot of differences between them, of which I would summarize as

Learning Bach for piano made me feel I had magic in my hands.
Learning Beethoven is making me feel I have sorcery in them!

Of course, I’m only talking from the perspective of having played only these two pieces. I can guarantee you I wouldn’t be saying the same thing if I had learned to play THIS by Bach!

That’s beyond sorcery!

That’s like… NECROMANCY!!

Or NECROMANSORCERY!!!

Or something of the sort! But while looking up this Toccata and Fugue in D minor, traditionally played for organ…

I thought about the carillon, and how the piece might sound on that. From my search, I found this incredible rendition of the Toccata on carillon!

Goodness me!!! Amazing… but how do you practice this without annoying the whole town cause you’re bound to make lots of mistakes in learning??? 🙂
