xx Beethoven - Sonata Op. 90

Hello everybody. This is my new recording of Beethoven's Sonata Op. 90. Please tell me what you think Smiley All comments (good, bad, anything) are appreciated.

I feel kind of awkward posting this compared to the 'greats' on this forum (aka becky, ladypianist, enzo, and other amazing pianists)...

This is me playing Beethoven's Sonata No. 27 Op. 90, Mvt 1. It was considered one of the transition pieces between the middle and late period and technically not that difficult besides the huge jump in the left hand at two sections (fortunately, I have pretty big hands that can stretch an 11th). Please let me know what you think! Criticism is welcome Smiley

question Beethoven Piano Sonatas (please quick reply needed!)
June 30, 2006, 04:39:27 PM by pianohenry

Has anyone played Beethoven's Piano Sonata in E minor (Op. 90)? Its on the grade 8 syllabus at the moment. There are a couple of tricky sections in it, namely the left hand semiquavers in bars 55-65 and then again in bars 198-208.

For the first time its ok because the middle note - the F# that stays the same, its easier to reach because the note is slightly raised, (for fingering I use '3' and sort of pivot around it...) But later in the piece I find it more difficult because the B in the middle isnt raised - its more difficult to reach and also the B flat gets in the way of my 3rd finger.

now, in each bar there are 3 groups of semiquavers, and the second 2 groups are ok to play the middle B with 3rd finger because my wrist is turned more and the B flat doesnt get in the way - but for the first group (with the notes E,G,B,G) should i use '2' instead of '3' for that middle B? what does everyone else do at this bit?

thanks for anyones advice and comments!

xx Which sonata to choose, Mozart K.330 or Beethoven Op.90
February 03, 2006, 12:04:37 PM by kghayesh

I am doing Grade 8 ABRSM next June and i am still confused between what piece to choose from list B. I am confused between the Mozart K.330 in C and the Beethoven Op.90 in E minor.

Note that here i am not choosing on the basis of which is more difficult. I want to choose the one that will be a good addition to my repertoire. That, is i plan of not learning the first movement only for the exam. I am planning to learn the whole thing. So, it is a question of which sonata is more beneficial as an addition to my repertoire.

My repertoire already includes a Mozart sonata and a Beethoven sonata. The K.545 and the Pathetique ( all 3 movements ). So, do u think i should learn a harder Mozart sonata (K.330) or another Beethoven sonata so that my repertoire includes 2 beethoven sonatas ??

exclamation Help with Beethoven's Sonata Op.90 in E Minor please!
October 19, 2004, 03:25:27 PM by after8ight

I'm currently preparing Beethoven's Sonata Op.90 in E Minor (First Movmt) for both my ABRSM Grade 8 and for my college audition next year. Theres a passage in this piece where I require serious advice:

Bars 55 through 65 (and also 198 to 208) on the LH is a big 10th jump. Does anyone have suggestions on fingerings that may be easier? and also techniques to cut the jump?

currently im trying 5-1-3-1   5-1-4-1   5-1-5-1 etc... but it really is abit too much of change.. and im also trying to play as high up as possible on keys of B, C# and D so the stretch will be more lateral than angled.

please, any suggestions will definitely be of help!

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.
