What do you all think of his 2nd version that he wrote? Apparently it was his original.. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diq3quloYtg I prefer this one to the one everyone plays. It has a brighter middle section, reminds me a lot of Chopin..The climax is even more dramatic..What do you all think?
Hi! This etude is one of my favorite pieces, and I would love to learn it. The biggest problem though, is that my hands are not big enough to play an 11th. Since my hands do not permit it, is it okey to compromise and play it like a quick pedalised arpeggio? I don't really have any other suggestions
Hi! Iťs now three weeks Im learning this etude and I play it at half tempo, but my problem is memorizing this piece! I don´t force it, I always let it come naturally and it doesn´t take too long time for me to get something memorized. But now I can play just just one page without sheet music, the rest I play staring at the notes I didn´t have problems with memorizing, but this Scriabin is killing me :-D
How do you memorize pieces and how long does it take to you? Or do you have experience with this piece?
Hi, Pianostreet community! I am a guy who is fifteen years old, and who has recently discovered a new composer: Scriabin. My teacher saw my interest and we got started on this piece...
This morning I did a quick recording of how I play it at the moment. I know that it is not very good quality, a few misses, and I didn't think the build-up to the climax was good enough either, among other things. But tell me what you think! Both positive and negative comments are wellcome, as long as they are constructive
"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.
