xx Mozart, Rondo in D Major (K.485) - left hand
April 13, 2006, 06:21:43 AM by getcool

I have seen this LH pattern in a few pieces, most often in Mozart, and it drives me crazy.  I'm speaking of the LH pattern that opens the piece and recurs throughout.

I'm having a hell of a time keeping those repeating quarter notes held for their full values.  As I alternate between the eighth notes above them, I tend to release the quarter notes too early, and I basically turn them into eighth notes themselves.

I'm using the fingering 531 for the D, F# and A of the first measure, then 421 for the E, G and A of the second measure, etc.  In both cases, the finger holding the quarter note (5 and 4) always wants to come up too early.  It ends up sounding too separated and it drives me crazy.

This only happens when I bring the piece up to speed.  I have played it very slowly for ages, and when I take it slowly it sounds perfect.  As soon as I increase the tempo, however, those quarter notes don't get their full value.  I dont know what to do besides continuing to play it slowly, but I almost feel like that's no longer helping.

Any tips?

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.
