... but the polyphony is the real challenge. Still, I think I can do it in four months.

I find sharps (or flats) to be really not an issue. (But then, I'm wierd.) I can't remember if you play another instrument, Allard. I think my music reading of sharp and flat signatures transferred easily from my flute playing to my piano playing.

Except for perhaps the black keys present less surface area than the white keys, I'm not sure why a piece with more sharps would be harder technically than a piece with white keys. (Leaving aside any considerations of difficulty of reading.)

So I say, Go for it!

Hello
I am new here to this forum, can anyone give me more specific details about this recital. Can I join too? I would love to do op. 54 no 3, March of the Dwarfs. Is this still available?
Thanks

I just listened to yours Allard - its really pretty! I notice that though yours is more intricate than mine (12-3) there are similarities in structure with certain phrases repeated several times. (Less to learn!) I can see you've got a fair amount of that 3rd voice to deal with - a nice challenge!
I started lessons in January 2010 and the first "real" piece my teacher gave me had 4 sharps. It wasn't a big deal and I'm sure that you'll quickly get a handle on your music.

edited to add: When I say it wasn't a big deal, I mean that initially I was "shocked" and worried it would be difficult and my teacher quickly got me to see that it wasn't going to be a problem. (As a result I'm not immediately intimidated by a number of sharps or flats....mind you 16th and 32nd notes do induce a bit of anxiety :J) )

PS88, I have no previous musical experience, unless you count half a year of flute as a child learning basic musical skills and theory. That never got to the point of playing anything with flats or sharps.

A year ago those flats and sharps gave me great trouble reading the music. I find it a lot easier now. In fact, music with three flats or sharps might be harder, since you have to remember that only some of the black keys are used rather than all of them! The E sharp is a little confusing at the start, until you remember that it's secretly an F and your finger goes there automatically.

16th and 32nd notes do scare me, Cheryl. Especially when combined with hand movement, like extended arpeggios or difficult melodic runs. Wouldn't want to switch with your Grieg piece laugh

Same here, SamS. I'm working on my 2nd choice which I retracted (71/5), just because in case I need to do it if no one takes it, I knew I'd need this time to get the tempo fast enough. They're both challenging though.

My first choice, 65/1 is tough in several places, but also emotionally. I lost my cat, Panda, if 17 years on Saturday, and so I'm a basket case. Still, he loved listening to piano, and I played a little for him (I've been working on Mendelssohn's Songs without Words 30/1) and that seemed an appropriate send off as we took him to the vet. All the music I'm learning right now is a tribute to his wonderful life with us. frown

I am going to post this twice, once here and once in the medelssohn recital thread in case anyone misses it.

As you know Pw member carey was not well during the run up to the recital, but has done his piece and, well here it is.

This is what he had to say:

I purchased the sheet music for this piece at my teacher's suggestion when I was eleven (55 years ago). Never learned it - and carried it around with me all these years. Finally decided a few months ago to bite the bullet and give it a try before my technical skills start to go south on me.

The biggest challenge with this piece was determining a fingering that worked for ME (not for the editor). In one measure I couldn't make my LH do what Mendelssohn intended so I resorted to dividing the musical line between the RH and LH - and it actually worked. Also found that at this tempo it was necessary to keep the hands high - and play on the fingertips (including the tips of the thumb). Anything short of that bogged the piece down. Then, of course, there was the challenge of getting my brain and my fingers to work together during two minutes of INTENSE concentration. In the end, I tried to have fun with it.

So sorry, it's devastating. But you're lucky to have shared 17 years with him! My favorite cat didn't make it to that age.

May I ask for Op. 65 No. 3 Tungsinn (Melancholy) as a number 2 (of course, if no one wants it as a first choice)? The fast octaves will be a challenge for me, but I have fallen in love with the piece.

Thank you, sinophilia. Animals can hold a special place in our hearts because they can love unconditionally. smile

I'm sorry to hear you've lost your little friend. I haven't had a pet for ages, but I remember well how hard it is to say good bye to them.

Carey - I enjoyed listening to your Mendelssohn piece, and am glad you're up to it now. Thanks for persevering!

Maybe you'll be joining us again for the Grieg recital?

I've got the notes and rhythm for 57.3, Illusion. Now to decide what tempo might be appropriate (although continue with slow practice) and search for how to deepen the expression of the piece. I'm not really sure what story it's telling.

For my second piece (provided no one else wants it) 65.3 Melancholy, I have started to practice (learn!) octave technique. I'm playing chromatic scales in octaves, with a flexible wrist, 1-5 on the white notes and 1-4 on the black notes, and being sure to relax my hand in between notes. It would be nice to have a teacher, but failing that I'm working from bits of discussion of octaves I've read in various places.

Sounds like you're on the right track with the octaves. You may also want to practice them as broken octaves (bottom note-top note, then top-note bottom), being sure to relax in between. And you can also practice the octaves in rhythms. smile
