xx chopin etude op25 4 and 5 and others metronome
March 01, 2011, 08:52:57 PM by ignaceii

I already opened this up in the students corner on moskowsky, and czerny.
Tempo in op25 nr 5 marked 184 per 1/4. Nr 4 is equally crazy.
I took gavrilovs performance (not to be accused of a slow player, i'd say on the contrary (see his goldberg variations)) and he clocks 144.
Also nr 4 he plays great at a much slower rithm.

I saw remarks on not to pay too much attention at it.
Ok, I do not, because i simply can't, and who can ?

The issue is, as a student learning on my own who has also himself as a guide and I like it that way, are these so called urtext editions correct historically, and if so, then I shut up, and first listen a performance and correct the urtext rithm myself. And I'll let short short or lang lang mess it up. If not, then it's a damned disgrace. Because utterly pedagogical dangerously misleading for autodidacts.

Lot's of success on keeping up with the metronome.

xx Chopin Etude Op. 25 No. 5

Is this about as hard as Op. 10 No. 3? I know every etude is difficult in a different way but, if someone is about ABRSM Grade 8, would this be a good choice? Also, what does the etude work on technically?

xx Chopin's Black Key Etude, Op. 10, No. 5, m27, otave leap?

Chopin's Black Key Etude, Op. 10, No. 5

In measure 27, when the does the octave leap occur in the right hand?

I cannot tell if the ocatva applies to that Gb note.

If it follows the patterns set up in the previous measures, that Gb would be as written and the Bb would be up the octave.  This is awkward.

If the Gb is included in the octava the you repeat 12121 in the right hand which seems a little static.

Which is correct?

In my Paderewski edition, the main fingering is 12121 going into measure 27 for the right had.  That suggests the m27 Gb is in the octava.  However, it lists 424 in parentheses which might mean that Gb is where it is written.  But the 424 is only in parentheses.  Maybe that parentheses push the octava marking a little to the right to make it look cleaner?  If you are supposed to jump down, down to where it is written without the octava, why is the fingering written 12121?

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.
