xx Bach is a bastard...(Bach Partita no 1 & Beethoven Sonata op 109)
February 22, 2012, 04:46:20 AM by perfect_pitch

Well... metaphorically speaking... sorry about the Title.

My frustration comes from when I did the Bach Partita No. 1 for an exam, and one of the main comments is that they didn't like the articulation I had done, or my ability to vary repeated sections etc... It seems that with Bach an examiner can validate your playing and interpretation and another can tell you it's crap and worthless.

I'm beginning to wonder if it's worth me tackling the Fellowship Exam again, and I picked up the first Mov from the Bach and the Beethoven to get my fingers working again.

I would like you all to be brutally honest about what you think sucks, what you think works, or what just needs a little tweaking. I'm fine with comments like 'that sucks'... if you can validate why and give some help. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hey everyone!
I am currently scrambling to prepare for my ARCT exam which is in less than two weeks!
Anyways, I've always been told that Bach isn't my cup of tea, so I thought it'd be a good idea to post an mp3 of myself playing in order to get some pointers from more advanced players.  Some major points of concern, in my opinion, are my crappy use of pedal and somewhat harsh tone.  Any critism is welcome, but please remember I'm only 16 (haha and to be honest, quite sensitive)!  Sorry about the Gigue, everyone. I didn't have time to record it again - my ipod was running out of battery.

Thanks so much!

I have heard this famous and much loved piece many times on Cds, on the radio and I also watched it on Youtube. I would like to play it with all my heart... I have downloaded the music sheet from pianostreet. However, I am confused which hand plays what - and there is no fingering. I have searched the Internet for sheet music with fingering but have had no success. When I attempt to play it, it sounds nothing like I have heard. When other people play it, there are notes that I cannot see on the music sheet, played by L hand in particular. I also don't know how to do the trills. I have played some fairly difficult pieces, including bach inventions a couple of preludes - but this one totally baffles me, and I don't have a teacher to help me as I live too far away from the city.
So I am very confused. If anyone could help me that would be great.
Thank you so much,

Some preformances of bach, or baroque music in generall, is so very.., I don't know the english word, but you can really see ppl dance in front of you when they play. And some preformances is the complete oppisite.

I play bach's first partita, and I know noone can dance to these movements, but do you have any tips for creating this "dancing" feel while playing?

Hello all,

These pieces (like my previous tracks) were recorded on a Charles Walter grand piano at my friend's house in Allentown, PA.  I hope you like them.

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.
