xx Beethoven Sonata op 10 no 3
January 18, 2010, 05:28:30 AM by arvhaax93

I am having some serious speed issues specifically in the first movement.  I practice it around 144 per quarter note and i play it clean and usually note perfect (in sections), but the problem is is that when i bump up the speed around two knotches to around 160 then it completely falls apart.  The way I speed this up is I play it several times a day in sections, and i bump up the metronome speed every 2 weeks or so because I don't want to butcher this piece at all.  I've had this piece since September of last year and I feel I'm taking an unnecessary amount of time to get this sped up (and it's only half speed)  and getting it learned was not a problem.  I don't see how in the world I'm going to be playing it twice as fast as I am right now (the speed it should be at), I just feel physically or mentally unable.  How should I go about tackling this situation?

xx Advice on how to practise this piece.

Hello, I recently began playing Beethoven's 7 sonata nr 3 in D major. I have always had a problem learning more traditional classical music, im more into modern compositions.
 So, how do I practise this? I need to learn it in a short period of time. I would be so grateful for some help!  Grin

I'm having trouble with the first and second movements.  For the first movements I'm playing the piece around 72 bpm per quarter note and I understand that it's the speed that makes this song difficult.  How should I go about speeding this song up?  For the second movement I'm having troubles with tempo, I cannot keep a stable tempo.  For the beginning part where there are 8th notes I keep a slow tempo, but once i get to the 16th notes starting with the D, I speed the tempo up a little bit because I think it fits the mood better.  I'm also playing this movement for judges next month and I'm not sure if judges will take off for tempo.  Also, the section of the movement where there are consecutive 32nd notes, I increase the tempo quite a bit to match the mood (as well)  These tempo changes within the song, I think, fit it perfectly, but my teacher says that I should keep one tempo throughout.  Is it normal to change tempos for a song in different sections that match the mood or should I keep one relative tempo throughout the whole movement?  If you think it should be one tempo throughout the whole thing, what would be an ideal tempo?

Hi everyone -- this is also from my high school senior recital.  Beethoven's Sonata in D major, Op. 10 No. 3

I. Presto
II. Largo e mesto
IV. Rondo: Allegro

I have left out the third movement (Menuetto: Allegro) because of a memory issue I had.  Also, this was the first piece I played so I was a little nervous and thus there are a few clunkers in the Presto.

Recorded live at Kilbourn Hall, Rochester NY, June 1 2008.

xx Schiff wrong on Beethoven op.10/3?
May 08, 2007, 11:05:50 AM by mostlyclassical

Hi everyone,

just heard the Schiff lecture on the D major sonata no. 7 (op.10 no 3) http://music.guardian.co.uk/classical/page/0,,1943867,00.html.
Listen to 2:20 and 5:50. He claims the 4 equal semi quaver approach taken by most pianists on bar 53 (I think) is nonsense. I like this pianist a lot and it surprised me to hear such an "inflexible" comment, to say the least.
Historical and notational reasons aside (and I believe at that era, Beethoven could quite normally write what he did, and mean 4 semiquavers) to my ears, Schiff's interpretation sounds bad and disruptive to the flow of the music.
What do you think?

xx choosing a Beethoven piano sonata
June 16, 2006, 04:54:45 AM by ben12345_5

I'm choosing a Beethoven sonata movement to learn next year.  My piano teacher gave me 3 choices:

1) Sonata No. 7 in D Major Op. 10 No. 3 1st mvt. Presto.
2) Sonata No. 18 in Eb Major Op. 31 No. 3 2nd mvt. Scherzo.
3) Sonata No. 26 in Eb Major Op. 81a "Les adieux" 1st mvt.

I think all of these pieces are within my technical ability (my previous pieces include Jeux d'Eau, Chopin Scherzo No. 2, Saint-Saens Piano concerto no. 2 1st mvt), but this is going to be my second priority piece.  I'll mainly be working on Busoni's Carmen Fantasy  Grin  , and I don't have time to learn and polish 2 big pieces.

Anyway, I was wondering if you guys could maybe give me a suggestion on which piece to learn.


xx Beethoven - Sonata, Op. 10 No. 3: General info, analysis, etc.?
November 24, 2004, 09:43:51 AM by mtmccarthy

I currently have Beethoven's seventh sonata in D major (Op. 10 No. 3) on my plate. I expect that it should be a bit of a challenge, to say the least, but I shall persist.

I would like to learn more about this piece. That is, whatever you can tell me about it, I would like to know. This would include the following: context of the piece, harmonic/structural analysis, general performance/practice tips, anecdotes, opinions, proper comestible accompaniment, and/or anything else.

The score can be found at http://www.sheetmusicarchive.net. I don't know if the edition is any good, though. I am using is the Henle Verlag edition.

I understand that this is potentially requesting an obscene amount of information - whatever help you can give would be greatly appreciated, and I will do my best to put it to good use.

It has been a little while since I've posted here last, but I suppose moving to a different country might do that to you... Grin

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.
