Must blame myself for not coming up with some fresh topic worthy of debate ...
but at the moment Piano corner seems to have gone stagnant.

At the moment we munch on the toughest morsels

1. Invitation to go on a musical tour of Europe ... 0
2. Schumann recital ... stewing endlessly
3. Prodigy thread has disintegrated into advice of a good pizza
4. The rubbishing of Schoenberg hasn’t attracted many clowns
5. Scriabin takes a knock ... fades at 2
6. Ravel Concerto dies ... 0
7. Pedalling closes down ... 2
8. Beethoven melodies keeps the flags flying at 42 ... hurrah!!
9. Cranky tuning of a violin is prodded to 12
10. Zhang concert is outdated at 42
11. Liutsa dissipates
12. Most difficult pieces can’t keep up steam

With such clever chaps out there ... surely it’s possible to come up with more challenging threads

If looking at it like that, just about every topic that pops up would be stagnant....let's talk about the Rach 3!

YES Rach 1!!! Just started learning it. The second movement is nothing short of addicting - Rachmaninoff is the master of harmonic progressions.

Just listened to the Rach one again after a while yesterday, a friend of mine and fellow pianist is dying to learn it. Angelina you are correct the harmonic progressions in the concerto are nothing short of genius.

Hmmm I don't think I've heard the Rach 1 in its entirety. I should do that this weekend with my good friend, Naxos.

Speaking of Rach 1 second movement, the ending reminds me of something and I just remembered what: the end of Mendelssohn Op 38 no 6

Magnificent piece! I love it so much! I like it better than Grieg's (the one it was based off of), especially the gnarly intro and cadenza and just the overall drama in the first movement. I still can't believe he wrote it when he was my age... That's the first concerto I listened through all 3 movements. smile

....and difficult.

BTW.....I had noticed too that the forum has been much less active lately. A lot of it is probably just "summer," but I think that other thing is involved too.

The revised version (the one that most people know) postdates the Third Piano Concerto. The little known original version comes from his conservatory years and uses (mostly) the same thematic material, but is basically an entirely different composition.

I didn't realize it was so different. Do people ever play the original?

I think things like this go in cycles. Give it some time, things will pick back up. I'll have peperoni and mushrooms on mine please...

Rarely. The original version (both full score and reduction) is on IMSLP, so you can play it for yourself.

I think it's the banning of the "edgy" types that's causing this descent into stagnation. A vibrant forum needs the occasional flame war. grin
