xx Beethoven piano sonata E-Major op109, III for Orchestra
October 13, 2013, 12:58:31 AM by gprengel

Last week I was listening to the most beautiful slow movement of Beethoven's piano sonata op. 109, which I think belongs to one of the 5 most beautiful slow Beethoven movements. As I was listening I got the earnest desire to hear this variation movement in a symphonic orchestra form, so I tried to do an orchestration - here it is!

I cannot tell you how satisfying this has been for me in the recent days! I recorded it with the software Garritan Personal Orchestra.
I hope you will enjoy it ...

Thank you!

xx Bach is a bastard...(Bach Partita no 1 & Beethoven Sonata op 109)

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.

Can someone recommend a recording to me?  I literally can't find a single one that I like.

Just to broaden this topic, seeing as how I never see anyone talking about the 109, why do you think it is performed so infrequently, compared to 81a, 106, 110 and 111?

I've used the search function but found nothing, so I thought I'd start a thread on this. Beethoven's Sonata No. 30 is my second favorite piano sonata of all-time (though his Op. 111 is constantly fighting for that place), and I'd like to get a really good recording of it. I've heard that Gilels plays it very well, but I'm curious about other recommendations as well. Thanks.

xx Beethoven - Sonata in E, Op 109 - Complete
December 23, 2009, 12:20:53 PM by perfect_pitch

Okay... People may have seen some of the pieces I'm learning in my signature, and it's about bloody time I started uploading some 'works in progress'. I present Beethovens Sonata in E, Op 109 which is one of his later sonatas yada yada yada... I won't bore you with the details, but if anyone has the time or has played it - I would like their views on how I'm doing so far.

I currently have 4 months to try and perfect it before I am to have a master class with some serbian pianist or something, someone I've never heard of... but I don't want to disappoint as well. I have a further 5 months after that till my exam is scheduled.

Mov 1

Mov 2

Mov 3 (Theme & Variations 1 - 4)

Mov 3 (Variations 5 & 6)

I know it ain't perfect and the slips in memory are things I can fix, however - pedalling ideas, dynamic problems etc... can you let me know how I'm doing so far.

Ok, since I  feel tickled and challenged by Pianistimo since weeks I now can't resist anymore. I want to post also a totally unprepared recording. A piece I did honestly not practise for months and I played without any warmup today a few minutes ago. Sorry for the complete mess Grin lol

xx Beethoven - op.109, 110, and 111
January 29, 2007, 05:02:35 AM by ramseytheii

Listening to the Andras Schiff lecture on Beethoven 109, he notes that although the Sonatas were sketched and composed at the same time, Beethoven chose not to give them the same opus number, as he had with op.2 or op.31, or op.27.  Schiff never really offers a reason for this.  Does anyone here have any interesting ideas?  I ruled out the answer that they were too dissimilar for the same opus number, because the sonatas in op.31 are hardly similar, and the only thing linking those in op.27 is "quasi una fantasia."

I havel listened to Brendel´s and Schabel´s recordings but I find them a bit overrated.

xx Beethoven op.109 - Presstisimo mvt - Advice
May 10, 2006, 08:11:12 PM by twiglet

Hello all,

I have been learning this Presstisimo movement of Beethovens Sonata 30 Opus 109 for about 2 weeks now and have got around the notes fairly well.  (By the way, I completed grade 8 about a year and a half ago and have stopped having a teacher and now teach myself as a hobby and learn new pieces regularly).

I was just wondering if anyone had any advice concerning the fast passages of 2 lots of triplets.  I can play the notes, its just the articulation and the way it sounds is quite poor.  Should I be using pedal in these passages? 

Thank you for any advice you can give me!

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.
