Hi Wayne, I am sorry.
I am afraid they should be played together and not separately (in time).
They are drawn a little aside to distinguish different voices. It seems to me there are four voices, all in 2/4 meter.
But wait for answer from someone with more experience to be sure about it.


Pavel is correct - all one chord.

The good news is that it's not too late to change your fingering for this, and you have lots of time yet. Just work that measure slowly and you'll get it.

Hi guys.

I did not know this piece until yesterday, while I was hearing some of them on youtube.
How much I was missing by not knowing Tchaikovsky's piano works!

I'm waiting to hear your much more chalenging choice, MaryBee!

This is my second themed recital but I never really had time to catch my breath on the Grieg recital because I started very late. This time around I'm ahead of the curve, thankfully!

I recorded my piece today for the first time: In Church, Op 39 no 23. Technically it's very easy but there are depths to the piece that I am only now noticing.

First of all, the dynamics range from ppp to F, and I am trying to be faithful to these (and learn these dynamics along the way). Much work still to be done there, I'm afraid.

Second, I have been overusing the pedal. Not too much, but after listening to my recording I realized that I was carrying over some unwanted overtones into the next chord. Wrong!

I have been thinking about the pacing of the piece and went back and listened to the two professional recordings of this piece, one by Pletnev and the other by Biret. The piece is indicated as LARGO which according to Wikipedia means 50-55 BPM. Well, Biret plays it at about 40 and Pletnev 30+ to 40. And 50 sounds way too fast to me anyway. I mean, the title is: In Church! Sounds like a stately measured pace to me!

I also found my chords to lack precision in attack, meaning I wasn't hitting all the notes at the same time. So another thing to work on.

As a self-taught learner, I am sure that a teacher would have jumped on these in short order.

Anyway, an interesting learning experience and one that I wanted to share.

I am going to go take a listen to Ganddalf's piece "Valse a cinq temps" right now to see what it sounds like. Maybe I've heard it before!

I have found 4 or 5 of the Opus 39 pieces to be worth learning on my own, and I may pick up another selection later on. [If Joplin acquiesces, methinks.]

Best wishes

I listened to all 3 of the pieces that you are going to play, and found myself swept away by the Romance in F minor. How is that one going for you?

Well, the Romance is not polyphonic in the same sense as Bach music, but it has many fine melodic lines in the lower and middle voices that require attention from the person playing. It also has a few awkward ornaments, and it is not an easy piece. But I hope that I'll be able to give it a decent interpretation.
I received the score of the Op.72 pieces just a few days ago, and I'm afraid I'll have to struggle more with them. Actually the Meditation has some similarities to the Romance with some important melodic lines in the middle voices. The more I work with it the more fond of it I get. And the 5/4 waltz is a very charming piece.

I found the Meditation to be thoughtful (what a surprise) and the Valse to be playful. You've taken on a big load but I'm sure you are up to the task at hand.

Not a chance! I`m tangled up in the one I`m doin. It`s a bit of a mess right now . . .but I`m hopeful. Too far into it.

While I'm not struggling with the Album Leaf it has hardly improved much recently. We have periods like this. I'm still on M8-12 and M12-16. Awkward fingering is not feeling any easier and the memory isn't flowing yet. Patience is a virtue and every correct repetition, however slow and painstaking, is insurance against a later calamity.

I have the piece in 9 sections of which one is done, two are close and the above are progressing, though slowly. Two have only been done HS so far and one more is still to be looked at seriously. I don't feel under pressure from it yet.

I see Baba Yaga has been taken. I'm trying to resist a second piece as my calendar is filling up for 2014 but I might still add one from Op. 39 nearer the time if they're not all taken.

I must say I'm getting a bit sick of my piace by now, it seems like I've been playing it forever and it's not at the right speed yet. The more I go on, the more I see how it drags at slower tempos, so I speed up more and more and mess up the passagework. Now I have it comfortable at 120/eighth note but it feels as sluggish as ever. I can play it at 140 but can't get a video yet. Just made a nice frisky recording where - of course - I mess up the final measures!

I can play the challenging parts quite fast by themselves, but as soon as I add a few notes before and after they fall apart. Maybe I should put the piece away for a month or two, and hope that my finger coordination will have improved by then.

I don't know if it is any comfort to you, but I also struggle a lot with my pieces. In the previous themed recitals I had a leading edge having played a lot of Mendelssohn and Grieg pieces before. But the Tchaikovsky piano music is all completely new to me. And I was stupid enough to sign up for three pieces. In order to be able to play them decently by the deadline I'll have to spend the following months fiddeling with details and not even being sure that I'll be able to make it.

Ganddalf, at least take comfort in the fact that you could very well sight-read my piece, and probably at lightning speed! wink

I don`t personally thing anyone should be worried about either dropping out at the last minut (having given it your best shot) or playing it subtempo. The experience is invaluable, and anyway - they are often played far faster than the composer wanted originally. . . someone might ask "how d`ya that`s true?" to which I could say "How d`ya know it isn`t? Where you there?"

Have fun! I am, but my fingers aren`t . . . crazy

I don't think so. You made me curious so I found a recording of the piece. Very charming! From what I've heard from you before I'm sure you'll be able to play it very well and look forward to listening.

It is pretty! I'm glad I chose it.

I am still quite scared of playing fast, but at least it brings all problems and hesitations to the surface.

I haven't really spent much time on my piece since I've been preoccupied with opera stuff and then the Chopin mazurkas (which weren't ready). Yesterday, however, a violinist friend of mine posted on Facebook she was looking for a pianist and cellist to play Tchaikovsky's Piano trio Op 50, so I volunteered! I've never played a trio before so this should be fun. The music is pretty challenging but I think I can do it. Maybe we will be able to get part of it together in time for this recital! But first....we need a cellist.

Wish good luck on everyone for this. I'm looking forward to listening to the performance. I really wanted to do one of the seasons but cannot find time to fo this. I have to prepare for my school recitals for March and May. The pieces are already selected for both recitals.

Evening/late early morning guys, hope all's well, smile I've felt a bit of pressure in the past, (particular the last Grieg recital, and even felt real disappointed that my performance wasn't up to 'scratch') But does it actually 'matter'! I feel different about it all now (lol) I chose a piece for this one (never played any of the previous composers 'themed recital' stuff anyways) and will just play it where it is/I am, in time with the 'go live date' OK pressure's good for will/incentive/persistence/ ............but don't let it put anyone off just giving it a go. I've learnt loads taking part, and if come 'submission date' I only play half the piece, half tempo, the main thing is the effort wink
