xx Pedalling. Jesu joy of mans desiring.
October 06, 2010, 08:38:48 AM by jono1

Can anyone tell me how to pedal this piece?
I have been told to pedal and release only on each of the base notes, which is OK up to a point.  But the legatto in the right hand has to be pretty good to avoid breaks and gaps in the legatto.
I am having real problems in getting the smooth flowing effect without pedalling a lot more!

xx Easiest Of Three Bach Transcriptions
January 21, 2007, 04:52:38 PM by freakofnature

Hey guys!

I'm thinking of learning a transcription of a Bach piece and found three that I really like. These are:

- 'Jesu bleibet meine Freude' a. k. a. Jesu Joy Of Man's Desiring (transcr. by Hess)
- 'Ich ruf zu Dir Herr Jesu Christ' (Busoni)
- 'Nun komm der Heiden Heiland' (Busoni)

Which one of them do you think would be the easiest one? I'm thinking of learning all three, but as they have quite similar difficulties I would like to start with the easiest of them...

Best wishes,

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.
