Hi there! I recorded two pieces that I played at Carl Filtsch International Competition - Festival for Pianists and Composers in Sibiu/Romania. I played Rachmaninoff - Moment Musicaux op. 16 no. 4: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y_aJp9CrRdE and Chopin - Etude op. 10 no. 5: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZqwPe6usgck

And as I will play in a concert at the end of the August, I would really want to hear some advices from you...

All the best!

I've been working on this and have a question.  The L.H. has a number of leaps that need to happen very quickly.  This sort of thing starts around measure 7 and continues throughout the piece  (i.e. measure 7, 14, 15, 26, 45, etc).  I can't really figure out how to play this without it sounding like there is a break occurring in the line.  The basic problem is getting down and back smoothly (e.g. from B down to A(octave) up to E or from E down to B(octave) up to F# in measure 7).   The way I'm playing it now, the break is happening when coming back up (e.g. A(octave) to E in the example above).

Anyway, does anyone have any thoughts on how to approach this?

Not immaculate, but I hope decent and comunicative.
And don't tell me that it's silly to play pices like this with the score, I know it!
The score, the wall so near, my body language, the mistakes....many things can be irritating,  but be indulgent with a poor amateur!
All the best for you and thank you for attention,

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.
