xx Waltz Op.34 N.2 fingering question
December 11, 2006, 08:23:16 PM by diedel

Hi there,
I'm trying to play this waltz since I dont remember when...  Grin
Surprising,  the more difficult passage for me is from bars 17 to 22 aproximately. I can't get the sound I want. I have played the left hand bass with the 5 finger for the more low note of the chord, later I've changed to the 4 finger and recently I've returned to the 5 finger. I find my hand more relaxed. What fingering recommend for this bars, 17 to 22? I have a little hand.

Thanks and regards.

xx Valse Brillante Op. 34 No. 2

I'm trying to learn this waltz, but I have some questions. When I listen to the waltz in a recording, it's very legato, and very smooth, but in the music, there are no pedal markings, especially on the first page. How can I make it sound legato when there are no pedal markings? To any of you that have learned/played this piece, what did you do as far as pedalling?

xx Playing Chopin Waltz Op.34 N.2 Lento
January 24, 2006, 04:31:35 PM by diedel

Hi and sorry by my poor english,

I'm learning the Chopin's Waltz Op.34 N.2 in A minor and it's hard for me to control the volume and clearity of my left hand (the tipical rythm of the waltz). I have to work hard to maintain the low volume. I'm talking about the bars from 17 to 36. I have the same problem with another waltz of Chopin and I ask if there are a special fingering for these chords or anything to observe to play naturally this type of rythm.
I've read the Chang book about how to play relaxed the chords, I think I follow more or less the method Smiley. I notice some progress if I play only with my left hand but is very slow. The hard thing is to control the volume. 
Also, I play a little bit the pedal because without it, the piece sounds a little bit "staccato",  I dont understand why is not marked the pedal in this sheet, although it seems to be used in the cd auditions... (I'm ignorant, be easy with me Smiley)

Thanks for reading.


xx Too early for Chopin Waltz in A minor Op. Posth?
July 27, 2005, 04:00:32 PM by stormx

Hi !!  Smiley Smiley

i have been playing for 8 months, taking 1 class a week.
I have just finished:

Scarlatti - K32
Bach - Prelude in C (WTC I)
Clementi - Sonatina Op.36 n°1 (all 3 movements)
I have also learned "Fur Elise" (still polishing it, sounds awful for the moment  Cry)

I want to get into some Chopin, and i found out that pretty unknown Posth. Waltz in "A minor" (beautiful piece). I do not want to tackle something really out of my reach, tough.
I see this Waltz is graded as 4/5, and as you can see i have not played anything on this grade yet. I am a little intimidated because in another thread, Bernhard said that he would not assign any Chopin to someone with less than 2 years of piano.

To sum it up, do you beleive it is a good idea to begin working on this Waltz?

Thanks in advance for your advices,

xx Chopin Waltz Op34 Nr 2
February 05, 2005, 10:30:00 PM by berrt

Against some advice from this forum im working on this one as a first chopin piece (for my teacher its ok, she said it will be a little bit hard for me...)

Bar 29 requires the LH to hold c# and then play g a e - its possible, but really feels clumsy. Is there an "elegant" way to play that or have i just to stretch my hand? Bar 31 the same feeling with e plus ac#g.


xx Chopin Waltz Op 34 Nr 2
January 17, 2005, 08:48:43 PM by berrt

im an adult beginner, started last April, leaving Elise, Burgmuller etc behind.
As a first Chopin piece i thought of Op 34, 2 - looking at the score, it seems not too difficult. Is that right, or are there any "traps" i did not find?

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.
