I saw the film again last night: instead of watching it along with 3 other people, as I did the first time, I watched it along with 13 other people. A guess that's a groundswell for our field. Anyway, it held up a second time, and has a lovely aura

Thank you Joe80 for your input. I actually learned and performed both Sonatas Op.31-2 and 31-3 just recently. I spent about 4 months on each from first learning the notes to memorizing all movements and performing them in public recital (while wor

They can't exist in the same piano, string combination. You see? You can only get one to work out. That's what gives you feedback on what the scaling is like. From knowing the scaling, we can determine the ideal m3/M3 relationship in that area of t

Quote:if F3A3=F3A4 and A3C4=C4A4, then A3A4 is a pure 4:2/pure6:3, if F3A3=F3A4 and A3C4 is much faster than C4A4, then A3A4 is a pure 4:2/very narrow 6:3, Those sentences are either contradictory or have nothing to do with tuning octaves.

Beethoven 3 is a good concerto to learn. It's not harder than the sonatas Op.31 for instance (except no.3 which is easiest out of the group), and it's way easier than the Waldstein sonata. Grieg is an absolutely beautiful concerto, so don't discoun

Boo1234, I am not too familiar with Beethoven Concerti 1 & 2 but I will check them out. I just listened the first movement of 2nd concerto. I don't have the music in front of me but it does not sound too hard. I will research more on this one.
