xx Need help with Chopin's Op.25 N.2
April 16, 2011, 01:12:05 AM by countrymath

I'm learning this etude. I'm pretty sure I can play every bar on it, but I can't connect them.

I started it this week, and I can play only 4 bars . I can learn 4 bars on a day, but on the other I can't play them anymore

I'm following all beanhard's and Cc's tips, but I still can't learn them.

Any advices?

Hello everyone, I am trying to regain some degree of past proficiency after 20 years of casual playing and accompanying and a lot of family stuff. I am selecting a random group of pieces to work on my technique and thought i might try a page of this Etude.

Please excuse this rookie question-I don't think I have the timing groupings correct and listening to recordings haven't helped because I'm not playing it at speed. The clues I have from the placement of notes on the Urtext pub is that in the first measure, the second bass note g comes exactly with the b natural in the right hand, the next LH c with the RH e flat and so forth. When I play it this way the triplets in the RH have a very quaver/duple feel to them that I suspect isn't right but perhaps just sounds wrong because it's not at speed. 

When I play it like the above the triplets all sound like duplet quavers. Have I completely misread this?  All replies gratefully received and please be kind...I'm trying really hard to find a bit of my old life again. Meg in Australia

xx Chopin etude 25/2, too easy or are we doing something wrong?
February 29, 2008, 12:36:31 PM by gyzzzmo

First, good afternoon everybody!

About the etude, every time i play it i have something like, `this etude is far too simple, are we supposed to play it differently?'
Most editions say it's in 2/4, but has anybody tried playing it in 4/4? I tried playing it like this, thus giving every first note of the RIGHT hand triol an accent. Its splitting my brains up, but at least i have the idea that this way the etude is actually hard  Cheesy

Any opinions?

  Ok i recorded this recently, the etude is only a minute long so it is grouped together with the Appassionata, needs some more time but am happy with it at the moment, any comments are welcome. Smiley

Hi! I like this piece and want to play it, but I am not sure about the pedalling. Some recordings have a light pedal all through the piece, while others adhere strictly to the pedal markings. Also, what is the recommended tempo for this piece?

Thanks in advance!

After a quick search, I could barely find any information on this song here.  I'm thinking of starting this piece, being one of the easiest etudes.  It is still quite a ways from my level.  So, I'd thought I'd ask...

1.  Is this piece as easy as it looks?

2.  What other difficulties does it have in store other than the contrasting timing in the RH thirds and LH thirds?

3.  Are there any hard parts or points of interest to look out for?

4.  In the Henle Urtext, the fingering is 2, 131 243 131 245, etc.  But in the version at music-scores.com, it is (first note's fingering omitted) 132 132 132 145, etc.  In sheet music archive's version, it's 2 (tie here) and then the rest conforms with the Urtext.  Which was Chopin's original...

5.  Is there any interesting trivia or history related to the piece?

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.
