xx Question about pedalling in chopin's nocturne op55 no.1
September 18, 2007, 05:12:09 AM by nica

I'm preparing for my G8 ABRSM exam now. I have a question regarding the pedal in this Chopin' Nocturne in F minor (OP 55 no.1). At the begining,  the pedal sign were used twice each bar, there's the "*" sign in between 2nd and 3rd beat (LH) and the "ped" sign at the third beat(LH).  My teacher tells me to ONLY release the pedal and press immediately AFTER playing the 3rd notes of left hand. I found it bit strange...What do you think? Many thanks!

xx Chopin 55-1, Nocturne in F minor...Advice?
November 15, 2005, 05:00:51 PM by phil13

I've been struggling with the first half of the last page- the first 8 measures of 'Molto legato e stretto', where the RH plays the crazy triplets and the LH jumps with it. How should I practice this to get it up to speed and mastered within, say, 2 months?

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.
