Each of these pieces can be learnt simultaneously in 32 years, 2 months, four days, and ten minutes based on a person with an IQ of 324.5. Hope this helps.

Anita: Just to let you know that the IQ system is based on an average of 100. So someone with an IQ of over 300 would be an absolute genious! So I would say that your requirements of such a high IQ are not required. Anyway, I would say that an IQ in the area of about 180 would be more that sufficient! ;-)

Funny stuff :) I will NEVER learn the Hammerklavier, so you can include "infinity" in your list of times. But seriously, folks-- Donnie, I'm just curious--I wonder why you are trying so hard to micro-manage piano playing? Are you putting together a book or a class or a goal-sheet or something?
