xx Bach - English suite no 2 in a minor
June 23, 2006, 10:16:35 PM by fnork

I've been working on this suite now for about 4 days except for the prelude which I kind of knew before, but I thought I'd share this work in progress. I'm learning the whole suite so expect more recordings of this later... I thought it would be fun to post something although these recordings aren't of highest quality in playing - there are a bunch of mistakes, mostly in the prelude.

Let me know what you think, feedback is always welcome! Smiley


xx Bach English Suite No. 2 vs. French Suite No. 6
October 07, 2006, 11:17:46 AM by kelly_kelly

My teacher has given me the option to learn either selected mvts from English Suite no. 2 or French Suite No. 6. The mvts I would probably choose are as follows:

From French Suite No. 6:
Allemande
Courante
Sarabande
Bouree
Gigue

or

From English Suite No. 2
Prelude
Allemande
Bouree

Which option is a) more difficult/time comsuming to learn, and b) more worth the effort (in your opinion) ?

xx Debussy Ballade and Prelude to English Suite No. 2
July 06, 2008, 12:41:35 PM by kelly_kelly

Both these pieces are works in progress, and neither is as good as it should be. I get horribly nervous in front of people, video cameras, microphones, and even stopwatches, so as you can expect I had trouble recording. There are loads of mistakes and memory slips, and the bad microphone on my laptop destroyed any dynamics I may have played, but I resolved that I would post recordings today, so here goes...


Top Pieces
Debussy - Clair de Lune
Beethoven - Für Elise
Beethoven - Piano Sonata, opus 27 no 2 (Moonlight)
Chopin - Nocturne opus 9 no 2
Bach - Goldberg Variations
Chopin - Fantasie Impromptu
Mozart - Piano Sonata in A Major (Alla Turca)
Bach - Invention 1 (authograph manuscript)
Chopin - Raindrop Prelude
Rachmaninoff - Prelude in C# Minor
Chopin - 12 Etudes opus 10
Mozart - Variations in C Major (Twinkle, Twinkle)
Liszt - Piano Sonata in B Minor

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist
Australia

"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."

Robert York, pianist
Long Beach, California

"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.
