Hey Guys,

I'm quite new here, so I'll introduce myself briefly.
Hello, I'm Sam, 17 years old(male), and I live in the Netherlands.
I started of by playing Alto-Sax, then I went on to play the piano some 5 years ago (self-taught).
I also play the guitar, but that's not of much relevance as this is a pianoforum.. Grin
How's that for a brief intro!

Here goes my first post: Chopin's prelude Op.28 No.7
Now I listen to it, I find it played a bit too fast and the grace note played a bit too loud in the penultimate measure. Also maybe the bass should be a bit quieter. But that's things you find out when you listen to it after recording Tongue..

Hi everyone
I've managed to setup my mic and pc settings, so I recorded this Chopin Prelude.  Can anyone make comment on the recording please?

2.  resonant lower tones
3.  surprise chord
4.  attacks and releases

7.  syncopation and its opposite



xx Chopin Prelude in A major

I have recently learned this prelude (the easiest of the whole set). My only trouble comes with R.H. in mesure 11.

While holding C# and E with fingers 1-2, you have to play higher A and C# with fingers 4-5. I cannot arrive to play this cleanly. Somewhat, when using fingers 4-5 to play A-C#, i unwillingly depress Bb a little, producing a dirty sound.

Of course, this fingering is the only possibility. I wonder whether you also find this passage a little difficult to play clean, and what can i try to improve it.

Thanks in advance for your help,


xx Chopin A major prelude big chord
March 19, 2007, 12:58:56 AM by schiu

I am learning Chopin's Op. 28 No. 7 prelude.  When you get to the 12th bar there is his huge chord which most scores indicate should be rolled, but the original score suggests it should be played all at once.

My hands are *just* big enough to play the full chord in one piece if I stretch it until it hurts.

Any opinios as to the right way to do this?  Does it make a significant difference in the way the music feels if you play it together rather than roll it?

xx Chopin, Prelude, Op. 28, No. 7 in A

This prelude of 16 measures is probably the most difficult piece Chopin ever wrote.  Its treachery lies in its apparent simplicity.  One could spend a lifetime on this piece trying to attain perfection in performing it.

xx Chopin Prelude No.7 Q
October 08, 2005, 11:08:22 PM by steve jones

Hi all,

Just been looking through some of the Preludes that are around my level. Started No.6, very nice little piece. But I also wanted to do No.6. Problem is Im a little confused about something:

Towards the end there is a particularly rough chord in the treble. It goes A#, C#, E, A#, C#. I can reach the tenth easy enough, but I cant fill in the inner voices of the chord. However, on the music there is a bracket by the bottom notes with a '1' in it. I assume this is specifying the fingering, but I dont get what the bracket is about.

Could someone explain this chord and notation to me? Im wondering whether there is some other excepted way to play this chord that I am not yet aware of. Other than that, I would probably omit a note (it doesnt seem right to arpegitate this one to me).

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.
