xx Should I start this piece?
June 07, 2007, 07:20:03 PM by persona

I love the fourth movement of Debussy's Suite Bergamasque (Passepied), but I'm not that advanced a performer. I'd say I'm around level 5 or 6 out of 9 (CPE Bach's Solfeggieto level). The thing is, I found the sheet music on a web page that classified it as level 5/9, but it sounds far more difficult. Those of you who know it, what do you think? Are my ears tricking me, or should I leave this piece for later?

I have some issues about learning to play passepied correctly with my (actually) right hand! In the chord section when you play staccato, I just get tired very quickly. I'm trying to hit the keys with some amount of force, but immediately after that I try  to relax. Is this a bad strategy? I mean afterall, it passes very fast, and you need to make the keys sound...
What am I supposed to do? I've started to practice more than earlier (2 h minimum/day).. Could that be it? I really don't know.   Funny thing is that I don't have any problems with playing the left hand..  I've practiced passepied for about a week, and the left hand is working good...   (I'm lefthanded, might that be the reason)

However..   Hope that you know what's best to do...
take care! /lisztener 

xx help with Debussy's Passepied

Hello, I searched for help but did not find any so:
I am having trouble with the wide quadruplets for the left hand in the first 30 measures or so. It is not exactly that I cannopt play them correctly, but their accuracy is sort of up in the air. This is mainly becuase they are so wide. Currently I play the first four LH with this fingering.

5 2 1 3 , 5 3 1 3 , 5 2 1 2 , 5 2 1 2

Maybe it is just a matter of time, but is there and alternative to make these quadruplets and the stretch easier? 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.
