wink Scriabin etude- SECOND version op 8 no 12
May 14, 2011, 06:03:47 PM by chopinaninoff

What do you all think of his 2nd version that he wrote? Apparently it was his original..
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?

People here who play this:  do you take the big left hand leap with the right hand when it's played in the middle of the right hand triad.  I know Arrau wouldn't.

xx Hand size issues with Scriabin etude Op 8 nr 12
December 11, 2010, 11:22:32 AM by zeger_b

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 Undecided

xx Scriabin etude d minor (8-12) memorizing
July 06, 2010, 10:45:25 AM by 3kitty333

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 Sad  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?

Thanks and sorry for my poor english Smiley

Liszt was last piece and Scriabin was encore. It is last high-school concert.

Thank you for your comments. Smiley

xx Scraibin: Etude op 8 no 12... feedback appreciated :)
March 27, 2008, 10:44:33 AM by lelle

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 Smiley

Thanks for any replies Wink

xx Studying Scriabin Etude op 8 No 12... advice?
February 13, 2008, 12:22:33 AM by lelle

Hi all!
This is my first post; I am new to the forums. It seems like a great place!

I am a guy who turned fifteen in january, and I've been playing the piano since I was nine, when suddenly the interest came out of nowhere.

So, two weeks ago my teacher told me I could begin practice on this Scriabin etude after I told her I wanted to play it, and since I have been ill I haven't had any lessons since then. So I have been practicing this piece for over two weeks now without any supervision (sorry if the English is strange, I don't always find the right words^^) and the next lesson still feels like it's far off in the future... Tongue

What are the most common "newbie" mistakes on this piece? Is there something extra important one should think about when practicing this?

This is my progress so far:
about two thirds of the piece memorized (the beginning with the "theme" until the piece shifts to F#major and piano instead of forte (and then F#m7) where memory begins to fail, and the part where the "theme" is restated together with lots of rapid chords).
I stick to a slow tempo, I don't want to rush and make many mistakes and get bad technique because of that I haven't practised slowly. I do use the pedal.

I have both practised hands together and separate at different tempos. After each practising "session" or what you call it I let my self go and play through the piece once, only focusing on enjoying myself (means forfortissimo molto on climax among other things ^^), as a reward for practising Tongue

If it sounds like I've forgotten something important or that I'm practising in the wrong way, do please tell! Any tips or anything are welcome, this is such a difficult piece, but a fantastic one too, and I feel really motivated to work on it!

That is, if anyone came this far in this huge wall of text... Roll Eyes

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"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.
