xx Beethoven Sonata op. 7, Trio section problems
June 19, 2005, 10:01:14 PM by tabris

I'm struggling with the Trio section of Beethoven's Op. 7 Sonata, 3rd mvt.  What's a good way to practice this.  My teacher has me trying to get the movement of my wrists so that I go down on beat 1 and come up a little on the 2nd/3rd beats.  Kind of a circular motion.  It supposed to help me play it faster and more controlled.  But the thing is I can't get that motion correct when I play slow.  And I can't play it accurately fast, and I still can't get the motion very well 'cause I'm messing up.  I want to try and find a speed that I can practice the motion so that I can get it correct then move up to the faster speeds.  Any advice or alternate ways of practicing?


xx beethoven sonata op.7 comparing with pathetique
October 08, 2004, 07:21:01 PM by paris


yesterday my teacher gave me this amazing sonata. i have done the pathetique, which was also nice, but overplayed to much. it really hard to be interesting with pathetique, because there are so many versions of it...
i looked on bernhard and h-moll rank list (from easiest to hardest sonata) , and i was quite suprised, because you put op.7 harder than pathetique. personally, i find pathetique much harder, because of those octaves on begining allegro (maybe because i have very big hand and big clumsy thumb), and all 1st movement is, tricky...don't know how to explain. Smiley

i was wondering-why some pieces easily become overplayed (like pathetique, minute waltz, moonlight sonata...) and the others, which are also beautiful don't?

i have feeling that is sonata op.7 rarely played, what do you think? have you played it? did you enjoy it playing?

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.
