ok... i'm posting my performance with the orchestra of the schumann concerto. before listening to it, please prepare your kind hearts and be nice to us!
the orchestra is composed of non-professional musicians, meaning they work in other fields (bankers, math teachers, students, etc.) but know how to play an instrument, thus the MCO foundation put up the orchestra for these amateur players so they can have some sort of a good serious hobby.
as for me, i have no excuse... i'm studying to be a serious musician so whatever happens, i should always be in my best shape for a performance. hehe, sad to say i wasn't in that top shape for some reasons. listening to this recording, i can't forgive myself for that crap i made esp with the 3rd movement... BUT i'm so happy that finally i was able to play with orchestra and that's more important for me, well, for now at least.
Hi everyone, I asked my teacher for a concerto today and she decieded to give me R.Schumann's- Piano Concerto in a minor. This is the 1st concerto that i've ever learnt so it is going to be a challenge for me. Any advice or tips welcome!
"All of my students are members of Pianostreet and many of my teacher colleagues have joined as well.
It is an excellent resource for students and teachers alike and there is very rarely any need to visit another website or music store in search of sheet music."
"As a frequent user of pianostreet.com I find it easy to navigate, great value for money and very professional. The pieces are all well-graded and the audio is really useful, especially for pieces not heard before. I have recommended the site to many of my friends who play the piano. Keep up the good work."
"Wonderful service! [...] I have no reservation in recommending it as a “must” to all pianists, both teachers
and students, amateur and professional." Read full review >>

"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.
