xx Fingerings in Mozart K 283, I
June 07, 2011, 01:49:08 PM by pianos1

I'm working with G Schirmer's Mozart 19 sonatas edition, K 283.  Others have similar fingerings.

Having played K 545, with straightforward fingerings, I'm not following the logic of some of the fingerings in K 283.

All references to measure numbers assume that the pickup measure at the beginning is not counted, and measure 1 is the first complete measure.

I also assume the indicated tempo of 138/quarter note beat.

The following questions pertain to the right hand part.

In measure 2, last beat, why 4-2 for A-F# instead of 5-3?  With 5-3, the right hand would not have to travel as far.  The previous quarter rest covers the hand travel, but its still less efficient.

In measure 4, last beat, why 3-2 for G-F#?  Why not 4-3 or 5-4?  4-3 or 5-4 set up an easy five-finger-based pattern for the next measures.

In measure 5, first beat, why 3 for the F#, when 2 just played the same note at the end of the previous measure 4?

In measure 5, second beat, if 3 for F# and 2 for E, why 1 for the next E, which requires a hand shift?  Seems awkward if one plays the movement fast.  Same concept occurs in measure 6, first beat, with E-D.-D.

In measure 7, why alternate fingers on the Ds, which are slow quarter notes?

The following questions pertain to left-hand part.

In measure 7, 1-3 is indicated for the interval A-C.  What are good fingerings for the remaining two intervals plus the one in measure 8?

Every edition I've seen shows a curved line over all of measure 7 plus the first beat of measure 8.  Nonetheless, in every recording I've heard, these notes are played staccato.

Is the curved line a phrase mark or a slur mark?

xx Abbreviations in Mozart Sonata K283
November 30, 2005, 09:34:34 PM by atticus

Hi all,

Can anyone tell me what the abbreviations "m.d." and "m.s." mean in Mozart's K283?  The abbrev.'s are in measure 30 and 31.


xx Mozart Sonata K283
November 04, 2004, 03:33:47 AM by Daniel_piano

I was wondering if anyone could provide a guideline on how to practice Mozart Sonata K283 (1st and 3rd movement, 2nd movement is a piece of cake)
I'm sorry for taking advantage of your time in such a way, it's just that I found very usefull the various "bar by bar guidelines" for bach inventions, burgmuller studies, chopin waltz and beethoven sonata and I thought it would be interesting to see something similar for Mozart (since this sonata represents its sonata style well)
It's not easy for me to tell what sessions require notes as chords, outlining, dropping notes, different rhythm and repeated notes groups...

Thanks for your help

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.
