xx Liszt études d'exécution transcendante 1
May 05, 2011, 01:49:41 PM by reelypiano


Practicing the first of Liszts Transcendental études. It's going quite well but I'm having a hard time with the arpeggios at the end (I use 1-2-4-5-1-2-5 fingering) It's getting better of course, but could anyone who has any experience with this piece suggest any practice methods on this part? The rest is coming together. Somehow.

Thanks! Smiley

Hi, I  have been playing the preludio for about 3 weeks now and have trouble brining up the ascending notes in the beginning of the piece up to concert speed. I have been practicing the notes slowly, but regardless of how much I practice the notes do not seem to speed up. If anyone has any experience with this piece could you please help me.

I would like to know if I am just being impatient or if I need to practice a certain way.

I originally wanted to make the ending bigger, but then I remembered that this is an introduction piece, not an encore.

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.
