xx Childish question about Grieg a minor concerto
May 13, 2011, 03:07:05 PM by reelypiano


I've been playing piano for around 2 1/2-3 years now. Just wondering if you could tell me what you think: Do you THINK I'd be able to play the Grieg a minor concerto? Or the Ravel G major concerto? And which one is more technically demanding? Just to give some background, here are pieces I'm studying now and have recently studied:

Bach prelude&fugue from DWK book 2 #20 in a minor
Haydn 1st movement of sonata in F major Hob.XVI 29
Chopin polonaise no. 10 in f minor op. 71 no. 3
Chopin préludes op. 28 nos. 15, 20
Liszt études d'exécution transcendante no. 1 preludio
Liszt années de pèlerinage book 1 Chapelle de Guillaume Tell
Grieg lyric pieces book 8 op. 65 Fra Ungdomsdagene
Ravel miroirs 2 oiseaux tristes

Nothing too seriously, just something for fun beside lessons. Oh and if you know any other romantic/20th century concertos you think I'd manage please let me know.  Grin

Thanks in advance!

xx Am I talentless? Grieg Piano Concerto
July 25, 2010, 02:10:57 AM by venik

I'm posting this as an unfinished work because I've become increasingly frustrated with the piano in the past few weeks. I feel like I'm getting nowhere. I want to give up almost. I'm not sure if this is me being a perfectionist, or that I need more discipline. So, please give me an honest opinion on whether I have potential or not, in addition to any criticism you have.

Personally, I am not satisfied at all with it. There is a 16th note added in, I play the rolling down 3rds horribly atm. In a few places I hit 2 notes instead of 1. I have trouble playing the triplet before the last chord. If you notice anything else please let me know I'm all ears. I am without a teacher atm.

Edit: technical difficulties

Edit2: fixed I think

xx Grieg's piano concerto in A minor
July 14, 2010, 03:58:22 PM by bananabean

I am no musician but I am hoping one kind musician will help me here.

I want to know the notes that make up the three movements of Grieg's piano concerto in A minor.

The first movement may well start
[Rest] A?Huh?AG#E....

The second movement may start

The third movement may start

I can't read sheet music yet and I only want to know the letters corresponding to the notes.

xx Grieg Concerto 5 Against 3?
September 29, 2009, 02:28:16 AM by pianist7

Any advice on how to play a 5-against-3 rhythm accurately? It's for the Grieg Concerto, 1st Mvmt. I do know how to play this piece, though. Thanks!

xx Grieg concerto in A minor.
November 23, 2008, 10:34:52 AM by zheer

   I've recently been learning this concerto, I tried playing it years ago but I couldn't but some-how I've managed to learn all three MVT of this piece. Anyone else learning this piece, if so what did you find most demanding. Since I have played through other concertos by sight, I am puzzled as to why the Grieg has this reputation of being a easy concerto, it's really not. When I have time I will record it.

xx Favourite Grieg's PC recording?
December 05, 2007, 06:13:18 AM by chong777

It is not easy to play this popular PC well. I like Leif Oves Andnes's rendition. Michaelangeli's recording rocks too.

Which is your favourite recording of Grieg's PC?

Comments would be appreciated. 

xx Grieg Concerto & Chopin Etudes
May 14, 2005, 10:08:45 PM by pianobabe56

Okay. I've got a couple of questions for you fine people:

1) Did Rubinstein or Ashkenazy make a single recording of the complete Chopin Etudes? I can find a complete recording on one disc made by Pollini or Perahia, but I'm particularly interested in Rubinstein or Ashkenazy. If they did make the recording, could you tell me where I might find it?

2) On a completely unrelated topic: In Grieg's piano concerto in A minor (Op. 16), around m. 85 (give or take a few, minus the cadenza), where it goes into sixteenth-note chromatic octaves, and eventually into groups of seven (sevenlets?  Tongue), I'm hitting a real speed-wall. I can play them fine slowly, and my teacher recommends that if worse comes to worst, we can just drop the bottom/top note off the octave, but I'd really like to keep the complete octave. Any advice on how to speed that up?

~Thanks tons in advance!

xx difficulty of Grieg's Concerto in A Minor compared to Moonlight Sonata.
May 12, 2005, 05:39:30 PM by kilini

I plan to do the Concerto after Moonlight (all 3). How much of a jump would it be? If Moonlight is ABRSM 8, how much would Grieg's be?

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.
