xx prokofiev sonata no.3
February 17, 2010, 04:50:20 AM by rachorbach

Im getting ready for my RCM exam and for my last piece I've chosen prokofiev's 3rd sonata.

just need some help on starting this piece, so if anyone played this before thanks a lot!!  Cheesy
key looks confusing, rhythms are bizarre as always, and the difficulty might be a little bit too much. i've played la campanella, rach's prelude 23-4, revolutionary, ballade no.2 by chopin

thanks  Grin

xx Prokofiev Sonata 3... a huge rhythm 'what the' moment. m27
December 04, 2009, 03:24:34 AM by nanabush

I'm planning on starting this, have looked through the sheets a little while back, nothing serious, but I want to play this for school, and hopefully finish for April.

Everything seems fine, until Measure 27.  The notes fit, but I can't wrap my mind around that rhythm.  In each triplet, the right hand has beats 1 and 2, and left hand has beats 2 and 3.  For some reason, when I try this, I naturally put the emphasis on beat two, and it shifts the entire meter over one beat of a triplet, then when the other part in measure 29 comes in, I feel like I have to pause to keep the rhythm.

Is the rhythm supposed to have that feel, or am I supposed to emphasize the first beat of the triplet?  It just doesn't feel right.

It's written like: (top line is right hand, bottom is left hand)

::: DA-da     DA-da    DA-da
:::      da-da     da-da    da-da

but it feels like:

::: da-DA     da-DA     da-DA
:::      DA-da     DA-da     DA-da

If that makes any sense... (DA is strong beat, da is weak, for clarification)

My technique is fine, I've played enough stuff that level, so I don't want any "play easier prokofiev stuff first".  This is probably one of the few rhythmic things that is scrambling my brain.

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.
