| Rachmaninoff Prelude C# Minor. I need guidance
July 02, 2011, 12:13:30 AM by qpalqpal
|Hello fellow forum members. I am very enthusiastic about playing this prelude by Rachmaninoff. I have to troubles, however. One, I don't know if it is my level. I am currently wrapping up Waltz Op. 34 no. 2, and I have a lot of progress in a nocturne of Chopin, op 72. in E minor. I've also done the first page of the famous C# Minor nocturne. I have been self taught for 3 years, and just got a piano teacher 3 weeks ago. Is this prelude my level, is my question. I would like a stretch, even it is difficult.
Next, I need a clear way for learning this piece, memorizing it and playing it well. I would like a plan on to approach this beautiful piece. (By the way, how do I add the sheet picture of this piece under my post. I am new here so...)
I would like to know which pedals to use where. Does anyone have the sheet music with pedal marks. I don't know where to use damper pedal
| Suggestion Diabolique

|How hard is it to play Prokofiev's "Suggestion Diabolique"? Is it much harder than Rachmaninov's Prélude Op. 23 Nr. 5 or Rachmaninov's Prélude Op. 3 Nr.2 ?
| Rachmaninoff prelude - continue op. 23 #5 or try C# minor?
February 19, 2011, 11:44:33 AM by cardamome
I'm new to this forum and not a native English speaker, so I'll have to ask for some understanding!
I've been trying to learn Rachmaninoff prelude op. 23 #5 for several weeks, and my piano teacher told me that I could do it, but only by working several hours a day (which I don't have). I absolutely love this piece, though.
She suggested switching to C# minor instead. There's an audition in the end of june and she thinks I can do the latter, but that the former is too risky.
My problem is that I listened to several interpretations on YouTube, and both pieces need speed. Is C# minor really easier ? Or is it easier only if you play it slowly -- which I honestly don't feel like doing?
Thanks for your help! I'm a bit discouraged here :-)
| Rach prelude in c # minor - tension releasing?
February 12, 2011, 11:50:01 AM by daru2707
I'm currently playing this prelude and everything works fine except for the part just after those fast right hand triplets and just before the fat chords. I mean those fast alternating right hand-left hand smaller chords. When I play the prelude for the first time during a day, I can play that part almost with no trouble , fast and not too inaccurate ; ). BUT the more times I do it in a row, it's becoming a complete disaster. The tension in both hands is so strong that sometimes I can't play a single little chord accurately and it's unbelievably uneven. I don't play much though because of little free time, but I'm trying to get rid of that tension by playing it slowly and relaxing my hands in slow tempo, then speeding up a bit, and so on ( I read that advice here on the forum ). But it doesn't really always work.
Is it just a matter of time and practice as everything else, or do you have some other suggestions on how to release tension in hands in a specific fast-alternating part like that?
| Which pieces should I choose?Liszt, Rach, Chopin or Debusyy?
October 29, 2010, 07:33:10 PM by keyb0ardfweak
It's my first year in the conservatory and I wanted to ask all of you what you would recommend me to do.
Btw, I am in the 7th year of 10
I ask opinions here. The only problem is if I am doing correctly or not.
Because my teacher believes I can and she demands me to play this on december and on may...
Anyways, the pieces I would like to choose are:
- Liszt - "Ballade no.1" (This one has to be in May) or "Un suspiro etude"
- Rachmaninoff - "Prelude Op.3 no.2" or "Prelude Op.23 no.5"
- Scarlatti - "K.141" or "K.87"
- Chopin - "Scherzo Op.20" or "Etude Op.10 no.8"
- Debussy - One of the "Images" book, AND, I was thinking of "L'isle joyeuse"
On december I have to play Bach's Prelude and fugue 2 (WTC 1), Chopin's etude op.10 no.6 and Scarlatti's Sonata "K.141"..I would like to play something more challenging..
Now..I have a BIG problem
Personally, she tells me, and some other friends that I can play all of that stuff!!
But..I don't feel like I can!!=S
I am 19 years old and I've been playing since 11-12
I would like you to help me on how to memorize all of this o.O
It seems hard for me
| Help with Rachmaninoff
October 16, 2010, 10:27:15 AM by samattack
I am an amateur piano player with limited theory but have been learning Rachmaninoff's Op3 No2 (prelude in C#Minor). I am now trying to learn the Agitato, but am having trouble reading it correctly. It looks to me like this:
Left Hand: E B A# A...
Right Hand: (E G# C#) (D# G C#) (D G C) (C# E G)...
However this sounds rubbish, partly because I'm not very good but more importantly because I think I am reading it incorrectly.
Here is a link to the sheet music that I am reading from: http://www.sheetmusicfox.com/Rachmaninoff/prelude32.pdf
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
| help on accompaniment for beethoven op 2 no 1
July 07, 2010, 02:18:45 AM by brunotheiss
|Hello, I'm going to play at the municipal theater with a friend. Each one of us will play half a hour and then we'll do some piano four-hands.
I have a semester to work on the pieces I'll play alone, and one of them will for sure be Beethoven Op. 2 no. 1.
Here's the question: is the program below unnefective or something like that?
Anyone here have a much better idea?
Rachmaninoff - Prelude Op. 3 no. 2 in C Sharp Minor
Beethoven - Sonata Op. 2 no. 1 in F Minor
Chopin - Nocturne Op. 48 in C Minor
If it's ok, I won't even bother on changing anything, I just wanna know if there's some kind of a big mistake in my choice.
Thank you already
| Rach Prelude Piano Switch?
March 27, 2010, 10:18:21 PM by pianist7
|It's very odd: the other day I was playing the Rach C# minor prelude on a different piano (actually it was an digital keyboard) and played the Agitato section with almost no mistakes. On my normal piano, I keep making mistakes all the time. Could someone please explain this in some more depth?

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
