xx Beethoven Op.78 Mvmt 1

I was in the mood to post some stuff today  Cool

I started this about 2 weeks ago; so this is definitely a work in progress (kind of obvious from the parts where my eyes are glued to the paper haha).  I'm just working out some kinks now, and was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for the left hand in the last few bars (the descending pattern with the chromatic bits leading to the final chord).  My hand kind of cramps a bit there (except really slowly).

I might post the Debussy Chromatic Etude sometime soon (at a slow-ish tempo) with some more fingering issues that I hope people might have suggestions for!

Did you know that the orginal title of this ultra-famous piano work is "Fur Therese". The editor made a big mistake LOL.

Beethoven also dedicated one of his piano sonatas to Countess Therese von Brunsvik

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.
