May I resurrect this post since the AUDITION forum has been quite
active these several weeks.  It has been exactly a year since we
posted this  Sad  and surely there must be something?

xx Chopin Polonaise No 1 in C sharp minor

I'm currently studying the above Polonaise. Can anyone help me with playing of Bars 9 and 10 with regard to the division of hands?. The last LH chord of Bar 9 and those in Bar 10 are in the main too large for me to stretch and therefore I have to arpeggio them. Is it permissable to take the top notes of the LH with the RH?. Chopin clearly writes them for the LH but only arpeggios the last chord. Does he mean one to arpeggio them all. I had read somewhere that in general one should resist substituting hands ... any opinions or guidance would be greatly appreciated

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.
