xx Video: Beethoven Hammerklavier Sonata Fugue
July 24, 2010, 07:53:47 AM by jezza_0410

Part 1

Part 2

Hi I'm a 16 year-old student, and decided to tackle the Hammerklavier Sonata after hearing Richter's performance of it. The Fugue is my second favourite movement of the piece (after the Adagio). Unfortunately my Macbook's in-built mic is not great so the sound quality is lacking.

Any comments on how to improve? I know I am very inaccurate...

I was wondering, in your opinions is Beethoven's Hammerklavier Sonata or Liszt's Sonata in B Minor more difficult to tackle technically? How about Musically?

Which of these two great sonatas do u prefer personally?

Thanks for your answers.

xx Best Hammerklavier Edition
December 13, 2008, 07:47:23 PM by firediscovery

For Beethoven's Sonata No. 29 Op. 106 "Hammerklavier", what is the overall best edition. What I look for in an edition is clear pedal markings and fingerings, dynamics and articulations (accents, staccato, etc.), explanations/commentary (in english, usually found at the bottom), expression markings (expressivo, marcato, etc.), tempo markings, large and clear notation, and overall neatness. Based on the qualities above, what would the best edition?

What I do when I study and play a piece is I get one very clear, neat, and accurate edition. Then, I find some cheaper editions with lots of fingerings, commentary, pedal markings, and expressions/articulations. I just write in all the notes onto my first edition. It takes some work, but I find it helps. What would be a best first edition for neatness, accuracy, etc. So, what are some very useful editions that I can get for a cheap price or find on the internet?

for people who have tried this sonata, after the initial B-flat in the left hand, do you take the next chord in the right hand, or do you leap the left hand over?

if you use the left hand, how do you minimize the time lapse when leaping over?

I just looked at da music for da hammerklavier and it doesent look nearly as hard as ppl claim is to be, i also looked at da op.111 and dat looked harder. Why do people say da hammerklavier is so hard. it doesent look dat hard at all.

Please no flaming. I hate dem flamers. And whoever says da hammerklavier is da hardest piece by beethoven, go look at da score and compair it to any other of da beethoven sonatas

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.
