My teacher gave me three pieces to play. I have to pick one of them to play.
The three are:
Chopin's Polonaise op.40 no.1
Chopin- Fantasie Impromptu
Chopin - Waltz op.18

Which one should I play?
What do you think about these pieces?

xx Chopin Fantaisie Impromptu op 66, Polonaise in A major op40 no1 'military'
August 31, 2009, 02:17:56 PM by jehangircama

I'm flooding the audition room today!
here's my FI rec. it's decent imo, except for a slip at 4.06.
this is a polonaise i like. i can't get it much grander on my yamaha upright. 2 slight smudges towards the end in this rec. and there's a blip at abt 5.05 which i suspect is due to the laptop screen going off.
how are these two pieces? are they in decent shape?

xx Chopin's "Military" Polonaise
September 27, 2006, 07:40:51 PM by drexo

I really like this piece and I want to learn it, but I'm not that advanced in playing the Piano yet, so I don't know if I'm ready for it. From the look of the sheet music, the piece isn't that hard... But that's only the look of it.

I'd like some opinions about this piece. What passages in the piece did you had a struggle with? And in wich grade would you rate this piece?

Thanks in advance!

xx Which Polonaise?
March 02, 2005, 07:30:37 AM by pigscanfly

I'm just looking for advice on which polonaise I should learn next.

Polonaise Opus 40-1 Military or Polonaise Opus 53 Heroic

There both amazing songs and I can't decide which one I should put my time into.  I was going to go with the easier one first but I'm not sure which one would be easier. 

I believe these songs are in my skill range but I'm not sure.  Could somebody also compare theses Polonaises to F-impromptu and Ballade in G minor because I just finished these two songs.


xx Workaround for Chopin Military Polonaise Op.40#1
December 14, 2003, 04:00:30 AM by hawa1

My handspan is just a barely-make-it octave. But some chords in the Military Polonaise span up to two notes above an octave (10th). Is there any way to work around this?

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.
