xx Beethoven Piano Sonata #5 In C Minor, Op. 10, No. 5 - 3. Finale
March 11, 2010, 11:27:45 PM by bonjing

Hello! I am having rhythmic problems on this piece. How do I play measure 34? I really don't know how to play the triplets. I keep using the metronome but it doesn't help me at all. When I play hands separately everything is fine but when I play both hands, my counting is not accurate. Please help me on how to play it correctly.


xx Beethoven op10no1 - trouble areas
November 24, 2008, 06:56:54 PM by feddera

I now have all three movements memorized, and I am now entering the "polishing-phase". The first movement was fairly straightforward, and technically I have it pretty much under control. The second and third movements however, have a couple of tough spots I can't seem to get comfortable under my fingers. The following measures drives me insane:

Measure 28, 30, 75 and 77 of the second movement. It just feels awkward, tense and "rushed" when I try to play those 64th notes in tempo. Hard to explain, but the passages just won't "flow" properly.

Measure 12-15 and 69-72 of the third movement. Same as the above. I can reach the desired speed, but not comfortably. It just sounds too chopped up.

Measure 34-35 and 91-92 of the third movement. The polyrythm just won't get right. I am currently just playing the left hand alone with a metronome, then the right hand alone with the metronome, and then both hands together. It kinda works, but I still don't feel in perfect control.

Any practice tips on these areas would help me a lot. And yes I have a teacher, yes I will ask him, but he's away for two weeks and I want to get this right asap.  Tongue

More Beethoven!  Tongue

The 2nd and 3rd movements are trickier, hopefully I'll have them done by the end of the year.

Comments are appreciated as always!  Smiley

Here's  a recital recording, sort of rough ... not up to the standards of most stuff posted here.  I can't seem to hone my tone control esp in my left hand.  I only practice on a digital... I wonder if that is part of the problem.

This was my first recording session. I performed this piece as well as Ginastera's second Danza Argentina and Bach's P&F in D minor, Bk. II. I think I will upload those soon too. There are some flubs, but I was using this recording to prove my ability to the various colleges that I am applying to. As always, I would love to hear any comments or suggestions. I am performing this piece again in a recital in January.

xx Beethoven Sonata op.10 No.1 (Help needed!)
July 31, 2006, 03:09:52 PM by xamy

I need practice methods for the following:

2nd mouvement:

bars 17, 19 and 21:
How fast are these "small" notes ment to go? Also does anyone have any good fingering? At the moment I am doing 3 2 1 4 3 2 1 2 in bar 17 and the same in bar 19.

bars 28-30 and 75-77
In these two (similar) passages I struggle both with the timing and hitting the notes cleanly and accurately.  At the moment all I am doing is practicing slowly and it is slowly improving, but I still think it will take a very long time. Are there any special ways to approach these tricky bits?

3rd mouvement:

bars 12-15: Struggling to get this bit up to speed while retaining the clarity of the notes. I noticed that as soon as I go to fast, notes start overlapping.

bars 34 and 35: the cross rythms! Tremolando (4 notes) in the right against tripplets in the left hand. Just can't get it right and don't really no how to approach it systematically. At the moment im just playing though hoping it will miraculously come together!

If anyone could give me a few hints I would be most grateful!


Oh and if anyone is looking for a new piece, this sonata is pretty good, the 2nd movement is amazing!

I've been learning Beethoven's Fifth sonata in C minor (I guess you all must have done these sonatas years ago). In the 2nd movement, there are those runs with groups of 11 and such in 4-5 places. Do you'll have any tips on how I should practice those runs. Are there any specific exercises for those sort of runs.

Just want a few comments on the first two movements! I will put the 3rd movement on later. I have been studying this piece a litle less than a month and a half. Had a few places where I need reinforce the memory, but I think its a pretty convincing performance overall I welcome all comments. You can check it out @  Shocked

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."

Robert York, pianist

"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.
