Hi all I have started on La valse a week ago, I bought the Yann Tiersen 'Piano works 1994 - 2003' recently. I asked my teacher if I would be able to and she smiled. She said you surprised me before so lets give it a try....

I must say that the first page is doable, but then the second part where it speeds up.... frown
I have been playing for 3 years and a bit now so am an adult learned but this piece seems daunting. The fingering is quit different from what I am used too.....

The piece itself is beautiful, I really hope to play it soon!

Greetings from Holland,

Patrick

However I want to ask you something... could you scan the book and share it with me??? please... help believe me I don't have a business with this, the reason is because I found some transcriptions about some songs like "L'absente" and "La Chute" but not have good sound frown

I want to play these songs and others like La "Jetée", "La Plage" or "Les Retrouvailles" I'm very interested in the original versions, Yann Tiersen is a fantastic musician but in my country is not so famous frown

Please think about my request, I'll appreciate your help so much, and while you think, you can see my youtube channel, I play these songs:

La Valse d'Amélie
Le Moulin
La Dispute
Sur Le Fil
Comptine d'un autre été: l'après-midi
La Valse Des Monstres
Dernière
Summer 78
La Veillée
Rue Des Cascades

If you want I can share with you my sheet musics just tell me and I'll send you to your e-mail wink I have lot of songs in mp3 if you need one in special and I can send to you songs and sheet music like "Avant La Chute" (this song is fantastic but in my keyboard is not possible play it good and I'm not so good playing crazy )

Well I hope you can help me if not I hope help you with something wink

Have a nice day!!! smile

Hi IRPRONI,

I wasn't able to buy the Piano Works book here in the States, either, but I *was* able to order it from amazon.co.uk, and they shipped it to me at reasonable rates. I suggest trying there. It's a terrific book.

Welcome to the forum. smile

p.s. I actually just checked amazon.co.uk. You can order the book from one of their marketplace sellers, ("forwoods_music" -- it's the second option that shows up when you click on 'see all buying options'), and they will ship to Mexico. So you're in luck. thumb

Hi!!! Thanks for try to help me, I found some songs there and in other websites but I can find only transcriptions about these songs frown

If you want, you can check this sites:

http://www.pianofiles.com/

http://www.sheetmusictrade.com/

The people commonly is very nice and you can find a lot of songs, but in this case nobody have "Yann Tiersen Piano Works" cry

I'll continue trying or maybe I can try with amazon, I need my parents permission to use their credit card crazy

However if somebody needs Yann Tiersen's volume I or II I can share the sheet music wink

Greetings!!! ...and sorry for my english grin

I recently watched the movie again and I loved it. I'm not surprised to see a thread about it here smile

Such a beautiful piece...

By the way, just out of curiosity, how would one count the rhythm in this measure?



And what are those groups of notes with the 5 below them called? Is it the same principle like with triplets but slightly different?

Also here? How is it possible to fit so many 16th notes in one measure in 4/4? Why? O_O

I supposed you are talking about La Valse d'Amelie and I can see you are using the wrong sheet music, if I'm not wrong this sheet music belongs to someone called Michael Jordan and is a transcription...

I used to play this version but in the faster part when the left hand begin to move fast, you can listen and is out of time, for that reason I started to search original songs and now I have the original version, if you want I can share it with you wink

I think you shouldn't lose your time in this wrong sheet music whome and if you want to see the right notes you can see my video in my channel, I can't play it perfect but the notes are right smile

I just wondered about the rhythm in the above example. I haven't encountered it before. The notes themselves are quite easy to read in this piece. Thanks for the email though, I'll keep it in my pile of stuff to learn some day, it's a terrific piece I just won't do it justice at this point.

Teodor:

I can't tell you nothing about theory because I didn't have a teacher who teach me all these things, I learned the basic notes and read a sheet music in my school when I have 6 years old but I really began to play (I want to say use both hands) one year ago with Naruto (Anime) songs and Zelda (Game) songs and I started to play Yann Tiersen's song on January of this year whome

About the videos mentioned in my channel... The person who plays is me smile my user in youtube is "IRPRONI" and my e-mail is the same "irproni@hotmail.com"

I upload "8 mm" from "Tabarly" album soon, I hope you can watch it smile

Sorry for my english crazy

Greetings!!!

In answer to Teodor's question, yes, in your first example the 5 16ths, are the same principle as triplets. You play the 5 16ths inside the beat represented by the quarter note below. In other words, the 5 15ths are each 1/5th of the beat.

In the second example, the "3" below each series of 8th notes means that they are 8th note triplets, each representing 1 beat. So the four sets of triplets represent 4 quarter note beats.
