xx Question about Chopin Waltz in B minor (Op. 69 No. 2)
April 23, 2009, 04:50:07 AM by practice

So I am currently learning this piece, but I've encountered something funny. Here is the sheet music:


Now, when I listen to professional recordings of this piece, it seems to me that measures 13-15 and 29-31 are played slightly differently than it is written here. Also, in professional recordings, I'm pretty sure these measures are played exactly the same, i.e. measures 13-15 = measures 29-31; however, in the sheet music above, if you look, there are slight differences between these two sets of measures. I also feel like there is an extra note in all the professional recordings I've listened to.

If you think I'm nuts, try playing those measures on your piano, then listen to Rubinstein play them: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgQvyLfPdFo (18 seconds, 43 seconds). Sound different? But it's not just Rubinstein; literally everyone else plays it the same way.

I honestly think it sounds better the way they play it, but I'm just quite baffled as to why all of them play it that way if the sheet music says something different.

I'm thinking there may be something wrong with my sheet music. Seriously, what the heck.. Can anyone help me out?

xx Pedaling for Chopin Waltz No. 10 In B Minor, Op. 69 Np. 2
March 24, 2006, 12:04:03 PM by atticus

Hi All,

I have the Palmer version of Chopin Waltz no. 10.  The first part is marked "p" but I am having a hard time playing it softly while using the sustain pedal.  The version I have has the pedal held for the entire measure which seems like too much pedal.  Does anyone have any tips on playing softly while using the sustain pedal or any tips on how to pedal this waltz?

  I'm learning Chopin's Waltz in B Minor.  Op. 69, No. 2.  I've basically got it now, just need to work on the section I was neglecting a lot. =P

  Anyway, my piano teacher says he really enjoys it, he says he likes it better than any of the recordings he has heard, and when I play it he says he is able to actually listen to it and enjoy it without going into "teacher mode".

  It's a simply piece, especially compared to what most of you are playing (easy enough for me, and I've only been playing two years. XD).  Because it is a simple piece, I feel kind of silly when I really get into it.  I looove this piece, it's beautiful, but when I listen to recordings, they generally sound like they don't really care what they are playing, maybe it's too easy so it's boring or something.  It sounds good, and I think of that as the perfect way to play it.

  But me, well, I exaggerate a bit I'm afraid, I feel like a speed up way too much in the middle section, and some parts I go too fast, just cause I think it sounds better that way, when I'm playing it that is.

  Even though my teacher likes it so much, would it be best if I just toned everything down a lot?  Should I play it perhaps a little more "perfectly" but with absolutely no emotion?  I'm performing this soon, so I'd love some advice.

Thanks in advance. D=

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.
