xx Prokofiev op. 11
December 05, 2016, 02:49:44 PM by inkspot

With winter break coming up, I have some repertoire choices to make to get a head start on the next semester. Prokofiev op. 11 is currently on the table as one of the pieces to learn for various reasons, but I am not sure how to begin getting though the piece.

For those of you who have learned it, what were some of the things that helped you along with it? Especially regarding fingering and the general awkwardness of the piece, how did you go about learning each section? Any tips for the learning process?

Thanks in advance!

I've posted a previous version of this toccata sometime ago. This is more recent and from a public performance. I hope you like my interpretation.

xx Good editions for Prokofiev Toccata?
July 03, 2011, 05:50:27 PM by yodaofpiano

I'm starting to learn the Prokofiev Toccata, and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for good editions. The website that I normally use to purchase music is hutchins and rea, and the editions they have for sale are Masters, International, Alfred, and Forberg. The last one is the only one I have not heard of. Does any know anything about forberg editions, and is it reliable? Also, does anyone know where to find the Kalmus edition of the Toccata, because that's what one of my piano teachers uses. Unfortunately, I can't find it. Please Help!

Sorry for such a mundane question, but I've recently started looking at the Prokofiev toccata (I'm considering choosing it for my ARCT etude) and was just wondering about fingering before I kill myself with learning something bad. Near the beginning, with the broken d minor then g minor chords in the right hand, what would you recommend? I think (starting with the d)

[1 - 2 - 4 - 3 - 2 - 4 - 1 - 2] seems to work well throughout, but would you think otherwise? It feels a bit awkward with the left hand over it.

Thanks in advance, any other general advice would of course be also welcome.

Im really looking for advice in playing this piece. Sad Whats your fingering number at the climax of this song? The one with melody at the top and major third as its accompaniment.

What's the place he's playing at? It looks like the same place this guy (Tang Tang something or other) is playing the Prokky Toccata: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bSPDmQtWPak

This is from my senior recital in April 2005.  It's one of the most difficult pieces in my repertoire at the moment.  Hope you like it!

Comments/critiques always welcome!

Some of you may have heard it, but I never put it up for audition here yet, so here it is!

The first file is from my senior recital at KU.  The second file is from another recital I did in St. Louis about a month later... funny story about this one... in the second main section there's the familiar FF contrary motion chromatic chords in D Major... well, I went an octave too far on this recital, and had to skip quite a bit of the piece as a result.  Interesting how these things happen during performance... Wink

Anyway, both recordings are here...

Has anyone played this one?
When it starts spreading with the left hand jumping up and down on the keys, the left keeps going over the right hand, which plays the same loop again and again.
Is there another way to play this?  I couldn't figure out any other fingering besides using the right hand for the loop and jumping the left over the right whenever needed.  This causes difficulties in some parts when the keys that are to be pressed at same time are like adjacent to each other.  If anyone has played it or just has reasonable suggestions, blurt it out.

Here's the 'beginning' (the spreading I was talking about)

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.
