xx need help on chopin 25/6
October 26, 2008, 04:00:17 AM by heha

Hi guys, I came across this forum while searching for help on this etude and it sure looks a great place for advice  Smiley

Anyway, I would like to ask anyone who can play this fluidly: what fingering do you use from bars 11-12 and bars 43-48?

especially for bars 43-46, I have tried different combinations for the top notes (while maintaining 1-2 for the bottom notes) but just couldn't find a combination to play them cleanly and evenly enough.

For the bars with descending thirds, how do I practise to get my thumb bounce across the keys quickly enough, or should I change my entire fingering altogether? Everytime I try to increase the tempo my thumb lets me down  Angry

I am learning (or rather trying to learn) Chopin's etude op. 25/6 (thirds).

To pianists who have studied this etude I ask:

What fingerings do you use for the thirds in the initial few bars? I started with 13-24 because it felt natural and comfortable; but I am realizing it might not be resistant to high speed. So, now I am trying 13-25 which allows for greater speed, just that sometimes it gets very irregular. Now, I am torn. And I don't think 14-25 is a real alternative. Any suggestions?

Hey all,
I was looking at this etude and trying to read through it, but I just could not play the thirds at tempo evenly. Is there a specific motion to play those thirds/a specific way of hitting the keys? I would appreciate your help--I'm trying to learn this etude and I dont want to learn it in an irreversibly bad way.

Seeing as my reputation in the Audition Room can't get much lower, what have I got to lose?  A recording of myself playing the Chopin etude Op. 25 No. 6, G# minor.  (The Etude in Thirds.)  Comments are welcome.  Played this for a recital Tuesday, but that recording was not good quality-- plus I don't have it yet.

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.
