xx In the mood for a Mozart sonata...
January 11, 2011, 06:13:15 AM by kelly_kelly

...which one? I've worked on K. 332 and K. 457. I really like K. 284, K. 310, K. 533, and K. 576. My reservations about each are:

K. 284 is rather long with the Theme and Variations, and therefore harder to program.
K. 310 I think would be more difficult for me to interpret than the others... also fairly popular.
K. 533... Somehow I don't quite feel that the last movement is as wonderful as the other two, though the entire sonata is still worth playing.
K. 576 is very beautiful and concise, but very often played...

Anyone know the "extra" notes he's playing in the exposition? It sounds like he's playing the arpeggios up, and then down, but I've already tried this and it doesn't quiet sound the same. I'm wondering if he added some notes after recording it?

I'm playing this piece next week in front of a few acquaintances, and I know they will love to hear it played like this.

Any ideas would help.

(the last movement by the way, but anyway that has heard him play this already knows that anyway i guess)

This is my first post so, hi!

I've searched through the forum but couldn't find answers to my problems.

First of all, I'm a 19 year old composition student trying to learn the piano for about a year by myself. Right know I started to practice the C minor sonata of Mozart, k.457. I have several problems;

My former instrument was guitar but I have never practiced any multi-movemental pieces and I don't know how. I memorized the 1st movement in about a week and I can play it slowly now, but I don't know how to progress. I'm playing it at about 80 bpm but how should I go on? By practicing the entire movement? Or just small parts? With metronome? Without metronome? Slowly, than up to time or slowly, gradually increasing the tempo?

Also, should I now go on memorising 2nd movement or should I wait until I finish the 1st entirely?

About 2nd, I have a difficulty in memorising it. I don't know why but It's harder for me to memorise than the 1st movement? How should I start memorising? Practicing? Hands together? Seperated?

I know those kind of stuff is probably talked before but any specific advice will be welcome.

xx Mozart's Fantasie and Sonata in c minor; always together or somtimes seperate?

I was talking with one of my former teachers about my next program, and he insisted that Mozart's Fantasy in c minor K.475 and Sonata in c minor K.457 always be performed together. I feel that they may be performed as individual works. What say y'all?

                ...it should flow like oil.   "Wolfie"

I recently acquired some sheet music (the afforementioned) and was wondering if these two pieces are meant to be played together, or if its just something that the publisher did to save money/space

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.
