xx Rachmaninoff Opus 23 No.6 pedal query
January 02, 2008, 10:09:57 PM by dignam


I started playing again about a year ago after a nearly 20 year hiatus and am now working on the Rach prelude Opus 23  No.6.  I'm spending a lot of time working on keeping the left hand legato during the long phrases.  I'm starting to put hands together and am naturally drawn to over pedal.  Does anyone have some advice on how to pedal this piece without letting it get muddy? In the first bar is it better to use no pedal at all until the right hand comes it? Bars 23-24 and the chromatic phrases that follow take a particularly light touch on the pedal.

I'd love to get a teacher but I'm in a fairly rural area.  I studied for years but that was years ago. I've read lots of great advice in these forums and that someone can spare the time to help me out.

many thanks in advance

This is one of the best preludes in Op. 23, although some would say it's a bit sugary. 

Update: I deleted the CD cut (26 downloads) and replaced it with the original source tape which has better fidelity.

Comments welcome.

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.
