I've done that with a few pieces and I find that it truly does set the piece in your brain (though I didn't write it out with software, just on paper!).

My dear Peter, thank you for the compliment on my English.

I think my students will be pleased to hear that it has been rated so high smile

Forgive me for laughing (it isn't the first time I've had such compliments)....I know it isn't obvious from my name, or my location, but I'm actually a Canadian, mother-tongue English speaker wink and I teach English and translate from Italian to English to fund my book addiction earn my daily bread smile

Had my lesson today and showed my teacher the Grieg piece- he had a lot to tell me about it and how to approach it, and seemed quite pleased with the selection. He also told me that I had some "freedom" in the intermezzo part, and didn't have to rush to play the 32nd notes smile -- He coached me on how to manage them.




I know a lot of British slang, but ...there are always things to be learned !

Glad to see I'm not the only addict here! OF course, I not only collect piano books, but vocal ones, too. When we moved, I hate to admit to how many boxes of books I took with me blush

I went into a music store last weekend and bought a book (with CD). Old school? smile It's a pretty nice store; they sell both CDs and sheet music (of mostly classical music). They even have an old upright piano that you can try the sheet music on. Couldn't resist playing some!

I'm mostly a lurker, but after hearing the amazing results from the Mendelssohn recital, I thought it would be a blast to be part of the next one.

I'd like to sign up for:
Book IV, Op. 47
No. 4, Halling

Thanks,
Carlos

The shock wasn't that you are a native English speaker, I think that is somewhat obvious to those who've known you on the forum for a couple of years. But Canadian?! No wonder you've kept quiet about that wink

In addition my 'easy' piece, Op. 38/1, is turning out to not be so easy after all (Henle level 4 but ABRSM class it as Grade 8) and is also undergoing tech work in M5-8 that's also targetting the 4th finger. It's like a similar rolling chord from Brahms' Waltz in Ab but instead of going 5-4-2 it's going 2-4-5 and is decidedly harder.

To cap it all my next ABF recital piece (now that I've handed in my final attempt at the Mozart Fantasy) is also more tech work though not directly on my 4th finger.

I usually spend most of my practise time memorising but this week it's pretty much all tech work.

How's everyone else doin'?

I’ve memorized the first page of my piece (38-6), and I’m working only on these bars. I’m having problems between bars No 14 and 20. Here’s the climax of the piece, so I should continue working on this part before moving on the next page.

For now I’m practicing very slowly (around 10 bpm or less), without any musicality.

I've analysed and tried out all parts of my piece (op. 54 no. 6) at about 20-30 bpm, and I wrote it all down in Musescore. Now I want to draft some sort of diagram of how the piece goes (down by 4ths, up by 3rds etc...), so I can put its parts together more easily. The acciaccaturas are fine, I think; but double notes and chords (= everything else!) need a lot of work. And dynamics.

Volksweise (Op 12, no 5) is going pretty well. I did pick an easier piece deliberately - my teacher asked, "So, have you reached the point where you just want to do easier pieces?" wink

The challenge is going to be making it really smooth; there are some awkward grace notes that can only be played with fourth and fifth finger and the thumb is holding down a note an octave lower. So I can't put any rotation in and it's the weakest fingers. Oh well, that's why every piece, easier or not, has something to offer.

Oh, plus it's a musical gem!

I've done some work on my 65/1, but I've been a little distracted with wanting to finish off the Mendelssohn Spinning Song, learning some of the other Songs Without Words that I enjoyed hearing (Op 30/1 and 19/3), learning an opera, and preparing students for the end of the year recital (why is it like pulling teeth??). All this while getting ready to move back to WI for the summer.

The piece I've chosen doesn't seem to be terribly difficult, but I was hoping to get it memorized and recorded by the time I leave for the summer opera program in July. I think the trickiest part is the ending 16th note figures in the RH, but slow practice and practicing in rhythms will help that...when I get around to seriously starting to work on this, that is.

Am I insane? Yes, I think I am.

Well, I learned that the name of my piece, 57/2 "Gade", is not a Norwegian word, but the actual name of Niels Gade, a Danish composer, conductor, violinist, organist and teacher. He is considered the most important Danish musician of his day (according to wikipedia). He was also one of Grieg's teachers.

My piece is also one that my teacher plays for weddings - she played it for me, so I have an idea what to expect.

But that is as far as I have gotten!

I have started on Melody (38 3) and it is going pretty well. I discovered the 3's against 4's and the 9ths on the first read through and realized it wasn't quite as easy as I thought. Since it is slow, the polyrhythms need to be very even. That is going to take a little work. I really liked this piece though! I haven't started the second piece, Elegy (47 7) yet.

I know how you feel - cos I've also got threes against twos with my piece (nocturne op 54, 4) and many of the twos are tied, which further complicates it. Apparently it helps to tap out the rhythms (on different sounding surfaces) of each hand together until embedded, then transfer to the keyboard. Will have to try that, though its hard for me to not just charge ahead.

Beric bought us a copy of the complete set (over 200 pages of music) - from 'Schirmer's library of musical classics' excellent value at £15. I've been having fun attempting to sightread a few - but I find that the quicksilver shifts in harmony are v difficult to anticipate and generally catch me out!

Mine ain`t going so bad at the moment. But it takes so long to get it to "performance" (I use the term lightly ha ha) level. I do have a You tube vid of a real expert at work. So I have something to aim for. Apart from the Steinway he`s playing that is . . . .

You probably know this already, but 3 and against 2 is "not di-fi-cult". Say that out loud, over and over. Tap left hand on "not" and "fi", right hand on "not", "di", "cult". 3 against 2!

In fact, it might be easier to ignore the ties at first just to get the proper 3 vs. 2 feel, then work on adding the ties back in.

I probably have to record my piece already by the middle of June. I'm going to spend 4 - 6 weeks away from the piano this summer, and August is likely to be very busy with other things.

Fortunately I know the piece, 65/6 "Wedding day" pretty well. I made my first attempts with it already in 1968. At that time I played it very badly, indeed, but since then I have made some improvement. Have to brush up a few details, though.....
