xx Mendelssohn's first piano concerto or the second?

Which do you prefer, which one do you think is more technically different (for what reasons) and which do you think is more difficult musically?

xx Mendelssohn - Piano concerto nº 1
February 04, 2011, 03:24:41 PM by takeo


The orchestra where I play has offered me the possiblity of playing a piano concerto (only one movement, not the whole concerto).
It's the first time I play with an orchestra as a soloist, but it doesn't frighten me.
I have talked with my teacher, but he says I should play one of the earliest mozart piano concertos (nº 1-7).
He says it's really difficult to coordinate with the orchestra, but I have played solos before (Life is beautiful, for example) and I don't find it so difficult.
I wanted to play some more flashy concerto than Mozart (I find him a bit boring), and the "easiest" romantic concerto I have found is Mendelssohn's number 1.
I have listened it following the score and it's difficult, but I think I can play it, maybe not at Serkin's tempo, but I think I can do my own (slower) version.

As a guide, I'm playing currently for a competition:

-Saint-Saens: Allegro appassionato op. 70
-Granados: Allegro de Concierto
-Bach: Prelude and Fugue 3 Vol. I

My teacher wants me to play for an audition next year:

-Liszt's Rigoletto transcription from Verdi's opera.
-Beethoven's sonata op. 22
And I will mantain Granado's Allegro de Concierto.

What do you think?
I'll post my interpretations in two weeks or so, so you can see how I play.

Thank you in advance!

xx Recording of the Mendelssohn G minor Concerto

A while ago, someone asked to have a recording of those concerto and I said I had them. But I only gave away the 1rst mouvement because it was the only that I found, but digging deeper in my computer, I found the 2 last mouvements. So if those "requesters" are still interested, I have them.

If you had to break up the first two movements of Mendelssohn's Piano Concerto No. 1 (g minor) and perform them both completely separate, where would you divide them?  I may have to do that this semester.

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.
