To be honest, what I hear in the recording is that extremly sonorous instrument, a little weird eventually, but this could be OK, but I also notice the pianist is not so much "at ease" in the tuning. DOnt know why but this is something I n

It's Beethoven's 15th sonata, opus 28, beautiful and elegant, and at first sight , not to much of a challenge. I know I can only do very little practice in the summer - the odd 20 mins - grabbed from the day - and essential to my sanity. I didn't wa

I think all beginners need a method of some sort to start with. The typical scenario of an adult beginner who doesn't have a teacher and doesn't use any method book is to pick a piece he likes (e.g. Für Elise) and go about attempting to learn it not
