xx Chopin Prelude op.28 no.8
May 04, 2009, 11:07:09 AM by gandharba

Hi there
After a while I seem to have the notes together on this one.
It's not easy to stay relaxed though. Especially in the final bars, the right hand is very repetitive and I find my hand cramping up.
Also, when I use the indicated pedal it gets very loud and it just sounds messy.

Any tips on keeping things quiet and relaxed?


question struggle with chopin prelude 8

hello pianostreet members

I play piano OK however this is the first time I need to overcome a difficulty such as this one in this incredible prelude. yet it is very simple: the right hand is in 4 times whereas the left hand is in 3 times. I can't set my mind free to have both hands play independently in their respective timing and this is fundamental in this prelude.

there is a good performance that articulates the playing of this prelude there: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8nt5owTycr8

how did you eventually face this problem?

Many thanks,

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.
