hi friends~ Got another task.....seek for yours help now....I am working on Beeth. 32 variation now... and find it is a very difficult part in the 9th variation...where you have 6 semiquavers against 4 crotchets......any suggest in order to work on it??
Say you are preparing an all-Beethoven recital of about 70-90 mins in 2 halves, what do you do? I am thinking of preparing such a recital for a concert that I have been asked to give at short notice (the recital is July - many of you would have seen the other programme I posted previously involving Bach/Beethoven/Debussy/Liszt, but I dont think I can prepare this in time). Anyway, here are my thoughts:
Sonata No. 24 in F#, Op. 78 Sonata No. 2 in A, Op. 2 No. 2
32 Variations in C minor, WoO 80 Sonata No. 18 in Eb, Op. 31 No. 3
I'm not one to usually ask for advice, but I thought I'd throw this out and see what happens.
I'm about to start working on these variations and was wondering if anyone who's played this might be able to tell me what specific fingering you used that worked for the repeated notes of the first couple variations?
My first lesson this semester isn't until next Thursday and I'd like to have the bulk of these little issues worked out by then.
I've figured out a few possible fingerings, and they would probably work, but some advice from others who've played it would be helpful.

do you think its crazy for a 14 year old to play his 32 Variations in C-min? Ive been working really hard and am in love with the piece, but I dont want to attempt and find it to hard. pianogrl815
This is a great piece to learn, and it is defenitely on my list. Can someone tell me a bit more about the difficulties, which variations are the most difficult etc. I think it is pretty playable or am I wrong? Thanks!
"All of my students are members of Pianostreet and many of my teacher colleagues have joined as well.
It is an excellent resource for students and teachers alike and there is very rarely any need to visit another website or music store in search of sheet music."
"As a frequent user of pianostreet.com I find it easy to navigate, great value for money and very professional. The pieces are all well-graded and the audio is really useful, especially for pieces not heard before. I have recommended the site to many of my friends who play the piano. Keep up the good work."
"Wonderful service! [...] I have no reservation in recommending it as a “must” to all pianists, both teachers
and students, amateur and professional." Read full review >>

"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.
