I have to introduce this piece with information about it for my recital Saturday night, and I found very little when I searched Google. I did find, though, that it's quite a popular piece with figure skaters (Irina Slutskaya, for one), and it appears to be classified as "Turbo-Folk." Huljic composes for both rock and classical-type performers, and he has pieces that seem even more popular than Croatian Rhapsody. In all that searching, though, I never could figure out what year it was written.

I have been following this thread from the beginning and even though I have not posted anything (I really didn't need to) I have been working on this great piece since then. My biggest problem was some of the fingering but there were several solutions and I found one that works for me. While I would not say I have mastered it, I can play it well enough (most of the time) that I don't mind playing it for friends.

There is something very appealing about it that I never tire of and it's one of those pieces that just feel good under my hands (Ragtime makes may hands feel good too).

So, anyway, thanks for all the, unintended, help. I love it!!

Roger,

If you'd like to post your recording of CR, I'd love to hear it.

I'm looking forward to your recording.

A year ago I started recording every one of my practice sessions.

After three days, fear of the red dot decreased markedly.

Within 2-3 weeks, the fear was gone.

No more anxiety and sweaty hands and slippery keys.

Hey everyone. I've been lurking through this thread for some time now. I also found the forum on Google while searching for "Croatian Rhapsody".

Would it be possible for someone to PM me the Maksim version of this song? I had no idea that he actually released some sheet music for it. It would be cool to compare the real one to the other transcriptions available.

Thanks!

Hi
I've just started looking at this piece and it sounds beautiful, I'm currently working on the Burrows version from the first thread. Is this vastly different from the kanemasu version which I've been listening to? Also is there any chance someone could send me the kanemasu sheet music so that I can compare the two?

Thanks
Paul

hey people, recently got back to playing the piano after a 6 year hiatus, looks like i'll be paying this place a visit very often from now on, haha.

Decided to pick up this song 3 weeks back (I'd say quite a bold move for a 3rd grader in piano hee)

So, I've got these 2 versions of CR scores, one Burrows' and the other Maksim's, but listening to recordings from dannylux and piano*dad, I want to mix in some parts from the kanemasu version, so as to make it 'one of my own', searched everywhere for the score but can't seem to find it.

If anyone has the kanemasu score it'll be great if you could send it to me please,I realise many people are after this score too haha. hopefully I'll be able to post my own version in a month time.


regards

I'm not sure which one it is that I play. Have you searched back on the early pages of this thread to see if your two match one of those that is partially posted? I have one I can send you, I'm just not sure if it's one you already have.

Hello all I'm new to this forum. I'm close to finishing up the Burrow's version of Croatian Rhapsody(just need to work on the speed a tad more and abit of fingering method). I heard the K version of this song and I really love it! Is there anyone that can send me the K version of Croatian Rhapsody please? I can't stop playing this version over and over, it sounds really fun to play!

Thanks

Hello everyone. As you can see, I am new to the forum. Although I joined specifically for this piece, I am sure I will benefit from many of the other great threads this forum has to offer.

I am excited to get started on this piece. Therefore, I would greatly appreciate it if someone could send me the Kanemasu version. I would also be interested in the Maksim version if anyone has it.

Please PM me and if you can't send it via PM I will give you my email.

Thanks in advance!

(EDIT) Thank You Danylux

Hi AjDionysus--

How did you hear of this piece? Since I heard about it on this forum, I'm curious how you would have come to want to play it.

I finished it about 18 months ago, and it's one I play every few days still. It's so much fun!

Nancy

I was surprised to see this thread revived!

AJDionysus, I hope you have as much fun as I did learning to play this one. I call this one "finger fun".

Nancy, did you ever hear or download the sheet music to the Brazilian Samba (think the translated name is something like..."Don't Touch me"?)? Mel (dannylux) discovered that one & recorded a performance for us a while ago. If you enjoy playing the Croatian Rhapsody, you will probably also enjoy the Brazilian Samba. It is shorter, and easier to learn and a real technical treat for the fingers. I am sure you would enjoy playing that one often as well!

Thanks for the idea, Jeff. I'm truly amazed at how much I love playing Croatian Rhapsody. I'm not really a piano player, more of a piano practicer, but I always have time to sit down for a full rendition of Croatian Rhapsody. I will look up Brazilian Samba from Mel. I've been stuck on some uninspiring pieces lately--or maybe just in an uninspired mental state--so I'd like to pick things up with a Samba.

This thread looks like it's been quiet for a long time, but I wandered in here from the "important topics" sticky post.

I finally came back to the piano about 2 weeks ago with the purchase of a Roland FP-7F. Having not played in over a decade, I forgot how much I love it.

Anyway, after listening to a couple recordings of Croatian Rhapsody, this sounds fun and looks like something that I can tackle. But sufficiently challenging speed-wise to keep me practicing for a while and get me back into a groove.

So I've downloaded the B version and played with it a few times this evening. I also just found a copy of the M version, which I have yet to try playing. However, no dice on the Kanemasu transcription.

I'm hoping there is a kind soul who could point me in the right direction or might have it handy and can share.

Thanks!

Hi everyone,
a long time since the last message here. I came across the Croatian Rhapsody only couple of months ago, when I started playing piano again after a break of several years. I found Maksim on YouTube, and I have two versions of the music score, one is "B" and the other is something special, there's a link http://upiece.co.kr/.
It could be close to the "K", but not exactly the same, as far as I compared some parts in this forum.
As the people before me, I would like to ask if someone can be so kind and send me the "K" version.
I already started with "B", playing very slowly and hardly, and I'm very curious the "K".
Thanks a lot!
