Gisele, if you're going to use the series for review and polish at her current level before moving on, let me tell you what I generally do with the series. First, about half the pieces, perhaps 2/3rds, were written originally as studies of one type

A443, I have not heard the term "hold" when describing the sound envelope. Could you please define hold, as well as the 3 other components. When you say lighter hammers with "flatter" strike points, surely you don't mean that the

Morodiene I think that's great advice! I'm reminded of that old saying, If the only tool you have is a hammer, then every problem starts to look like a nail. I think it's well worth remembering that what you need to solve a problem in one pie

Hi, mellifluous! And welcome to Piano World! Well, Brahms didn't write a whole lot of shorter solo piano works; but, having said that, you might have a look at his four Ballades -- early, not late Brahms. Within Op 116, I'd take a look at No 3, whi

Why not play Op.118 Nos.1 and 2 as a pair? No.1 leads nicely into No.2, and contrasts well with it. Or else play the Ballade of Op.118 by itself, as it has a contrasting middle section.

#8 is quite familiar and I'm 'pretty sure' it's Bach but I have no idea what. I looked it up in the "Dictionary of Musical Themes" and was surprised it's not in there.

Hi phacke! Well I'll be! I'd read somewhere long ago that sine wool was electrostatically charged, it repelled water. That's why it made such good winter clothes. I will say it keeps my string from rusting and the soundboard clean if nothing else

You slip on basic plastic because it does not absorb sweat from your fingers. The likewise porous plastic imitations are pretty decent nowadays, I haven't noticed any issues with my MP11 for example.
