I have just began to learn this piece and was wondering if anybody had any comments.I've tried to find a good recording of Chopin etudes but haven't had ant luck yet.let me know if any of you have found any
Hi everybody, i'm a 15 yr old jr. in highschool and i've been playing for about 5 years.i recently began learning the chopin etude opus 10 #3 its simple until the middle section ,but the fingering there is killin me.slowly i'm fine but i can't get it up to speed. what is a good fingering for this section?
I have come to the conclusion that I have no idea how to approach different types of pieces. Using this etude as an example, it isn't that the piece is too difficult, it's just that I find I'm not learning it fast enough. Serperating the hands it's very easy to play, but putting them together it gets jumbled, to the point where I can't even pay attention to dynamics. Now I know with practice I can easily change this, it's just how would I go about learning it fast and efficiently. I always take an approac of learnign a certain amount of measures during one practice session but I just don't know what I'm doing. Some help please and thanks in advance.
I have the Dover edition edited Carl Mikuli. Can someone post the fingering for the measures 33-34 and 37-38 that they use or are found in other editions. For some reason they dont include them in these measures. Thanks.
Is Chopin's Etude 10/3 meant to be played as an introduction to 10/4? In the Urtext edition I have there is the marking "attacca il presto con fuoco" at the end of 10/3, and it doesn't really fit there unless it is referring to 10/4.
Has anyone learned the entire Op.10 etudes? I am in the process and would be interested in hearing how others went about it. At the moment, I've been adding a new etude every few days while continuing to practice the etudes I previously learnt. It's been working fine so far, but once I get near the end I will need a heck of a lot of practice time to get through everything. It takes me on average two hours just to memorize ONE! I am a third of the way through.
Hi! I'm an italian piano student, I'm 16 years old and I'm new here! My English is quite horrible, so excuse me! I would like to post some recordings by me! There are three studies op.10 by Chopin and the Impromptu op.90 n.2 in e flat by Schubert! I hope you like it (the quality is quite low, I'm sorry!)
Howdy i just have question about the chromatic fourth progression starting in bar 38. Would any of you NOT decend the left hand in bar 38 with a 1-4 2-5 fingering? I find that particulary the easiest way to do things. Mainly wondering if its a big deal to land on the first note(In the left hand) of bar 39 with a twisting 2-5 fingering or would it be ok to land on that chord with a much easier 3-1 fingering. I guess we must keep in mind the legato. Pop some feed back about these decending chromatic fourths in bars 38-41. Much appreciated!!!
I was noticing that the opening tempo indicated by my Urtext edition of Chopin etudes, for op. 10, no. 3 (the slow one), is 100 to the eighth note. I'm learning this for a performance exam. I really think it sounds best at about 66 - 70 to the eighth note which is way off. Do you think it would be uncharacteristically slow if I choose to perform it at this tempo? The other hindrance is the middle section that is "a little bit faster" because I actually like playing it around 108 to the eighth note with is a little faster than 100 at the opening. But if I open at 70 and then jump to 108 would it sound too much faster? I don't want to play the middle section too slowly as all those dissonant diminished 7th runs wouldn't sound like nice fluent runs if the tempo is too slow. What do you guys think about all this? Any suggestions?
Okay, here are the "notes" meaning, that's about all it is. I don't care that I have mistakes and hesitations in it. I can fix that. What I do need are some ideas of what to do with this passage dynamically. There's the forte and piano echo bars (29 and 30; 34 and 35). But other than that the dynamic markings are somewhat limited and I am feeling uncreative, and my lesson got canceled today. Ideas people! All sorts of them is what I need to make this passage really "pop."
I have a question about Chopin's Etude No.3. In bar 30, I believe the first two notes played by the right hand would be A and C#. Then bar 31 it would be A and C natural. Then bar 34 would be B and D#, followed by B and D natural in bar 35.
Most recordings follow this, but in Idil Biret's version, she somehow plays A and C# for both bars 30 and 31. She also plays B and D natural for both bars 34 and 35.
Are there different ways of playing this? Or is her playing incorrect?
Ive been working on this piece for a few months, and I'd like some feedback. I seem to be constantly finding things I could improve on.....sigh.....But isn't there always something?
Also, Im wondering if I'm putting the recorder in the wrong place in relation to the piano, because this recording came out sounding kind of mellow and muffled for some reason. Any ideas of where I should put the recorder?

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."

"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.
