xx Beethoven op. 110
January 24, 2017, 04:06:14 PM by pianoville

So for the last week I have been listening alot to Beethoven sonatas and got very hooked up on the 31st sonata, op. 110. I have only played 3 Beethoven sonatas so far, op. 26, op. 27 no 2 (of course) and op. 28. I am wondering how long out of my reach is this sonata and how many Beethoven sonatas would I need to do before tackling this masterpiece?

This is a work in progress.  I just finished the fugual movement, so the end is a little choppy - a few hesitations.  Otherwise, there are couple wrong notes throughout...
Anyway, I perform this in October, and I would appreciate any constructive criticism - things you like or things you don't like. 

Movements 1, 3, 4 (2nd wasn't quite ready).

Thanks for your help!

Heres beethoven a-flat op.110 1st & 2nd movments. Comments def. welcomed
Sorry the piano is not very good - steinway baby grand as I recorded the other tracks on (scarlatti, haydn, rachmaninoff).  The engineer was good and had a separate microphone for room ambience, then mixed them later (I wasn't there, don't know what kind of software)

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."

This is my first post.  I'm one who has "lurked" for a while.  This was recorded using a cheap microphone and audacity. 

It is most certainly a work in progress.  Please forgive the page turn mess up.   Undecided

I would greatly appreciate your comments and suggestions for improvement.

xx Barenboim's Beethoven

Is it possible to get Barenboim's recording of Beethoven's Sonata Op. 110 without buying the complete box set?  I was looking at his other cd's and it doesn't seem it's on any of his others side from the complete set.

I'm learning the first two movements of this piece for auditions purposes (I get to start the third movement in the spring-once auditions are over - she doesn't want me being distracted-it's one of my favourites of beethoven's sonata movements). Does anyone have any performance tips? Specifically regarding pedalling of the alternating pattern chords in the right hand of the first movement. I've been pedalling by system (without any reaction from my teacher) but it sounds kind of washed out at tempo. Any advice? Also the second section of movement 2: my piano teacher wants me to accent the first beat of each bar to counter act the left hand notes on the second beat. I find this takes away from its lightness/playfulness. What do you recommend for this section?

Which recording of this sonata would you recommend?

Another audition piece (currently memorizing) is Alexina Louie's "I Leap through the skies with stars". Louie is a Canadian composer, her stuff is really pianistic - have any of you heard/played her music?  Does anyone have any suggestions regarding memorizing obscure 20th century music (this piece was written in 1992). The piece is really neat... it begins with a 24 s (in senza misura) trill in both hands that grows like a shimmering effect.

Thanks in advanced Smiley

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.
