Hey, the Rhapsody needs more work, but I thought I'd post it anyway. Again sound quality is a little  Huh, other than that listen at your own risk.

Hello everybody,

I'm new on this forum, but I have signed up a month ago. So, this is my very first post here, and I would like to share my latest videos on youtube.
I would be happy if you can listen and leave a comment, any comments (even bad ones!) are accepted... Wink

I am 43 years old, and I'm an amateur. I began to learn when I was 6, and never interrupted the piano practise. I work without a teacher since 20 years.
By the way, I live in France (Paris) and I'm sorry for my poor english.

These recordings have been made with the silent system (piano Kawai), so the sound seems to be low compared to other videos. Sorry for this too!

Thanks to you.

just a quick question to ask to those who have played it before. Brahms Rhapsodie 79/2. Is this an overly difficult piece technically or is easy to get the hang of. Secondly, when i am going through the piece....is there anything i should be aware of or certain parts i should pay more attention to? Thank you very much

While the Rhapsody Op. 119, No. 4 is more orchestral, the Op. 79 Rhapsody is more pianistic for the performer in my opinion.  NOTE:  This is an older recording done on inexpensive equipment, so the sonics are not very good. 


I deleted the CD cut (41 downloads) and replaced it with the original tape recording for better fidelity.

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.
