xx VIDEO: Scriabin Sonata No. 2 Op. 19 Mvmt 2 - advice please! :)
May 08, 2011, 10:32:40 PM by lelle

Hello people!
I'm looking for some feedback on my playing of this piece. It's a bit scary to upload, since it is very difficult to play, very easy to hear if you do any mistakes since it consists of a lot of "clean" harmonies washed in pedal (one finger slip will be heard the entire measure...), and since I'm far from finished with it yet.
When I decided to learn this around the beginning of the autumn last year I started practising it the wrong way, and used some pretty dumb fingering in places as well. When I finally, after months of slowly learning it, discovered that I couldn't play it fast without getting tired the first minute, I realized I had to re-learn it from scratch. I did a lot of thinking about what my teachers taught me about technique and how I could get myself to relax. The difficult thing for me is that there is a certain point where I feel that each individual note needs to be played so fast that it is impossible to listen to each one of them and use my eyes to see to it that they are correct; I have to rely on that my mechanical memory is 200% sure of what it's doing and will do all the work for me (I'm not quite there yet though - so I keep practising it slowly), so I can concentrate on relaxing and keeping the wrist flexible.
Now I can at least play this "decently" fast several times in a row without getting tired. I did play a bit faster than I'm used to in the video though (I seem to be playing it around 4:15 normally), I was stressed about having a mic recording me, so my technique suffered a bit from that. The scary thing is that to be performance ready it should probably go even faster  Cry

Anyway, any kind of feedback on my playing and/or technical advice is much welcome!

So, I am working on this sonata and I'd love to get some feedback on my playing. You can be harsh if necessary but remember it has to be constructive! Smiley Thanks for listening!

xx Scriabin's 2nd sonata...
November 14, 2007, 05:04:11 AM by nanabush

Hey!  It's been a while since I've posted here  Wink

I've recently begun playing Scriabin's second sonata (on the side); For the first movement, I generally have the notes down minus several really awkward sections.  I'm just wondering; I have a recording done by Ruth Laredo of the first movement, and it sounds incredible.  I don't know how much pedal she uses, and how she clears through some of the right hand runs as well as left hand leaps while sustaining such a good legato... If anyone's played this or knows anything about it, how much pedal is too much for this, and is it necessary in some sections to cover up leaps with pedal?

sound quality is bad, and it's far from being perfect but it's a difficult piece believe me Sad

Has anyone played it? I know it's a difficult piece, but I guess I want to know if it gets annoyingly tedious. I've always loved the Scriabin sonatas, and the second is beautiful - plus I think it'll be easier than #5, but also a good intro to his larger works.

Right now I'm working on:

Rach op.32 bminor  - 95% done

Chopin op.10#1 - done

op.25#12 - been done 2 yrs

3rd Ballade - 85%

op10#8 - 60%

 I've also played a lot of Chopin and Scriabin in the past that I've unfortunately for gotten.

Anyways, some advice would be great.

xx Scriabin - Advice on sonata No. 2 in G#m
July 10, 2006, 12:35:29 AM by exigence

Considering picking this up; currently play the famous D#m etude, the 11/14 prelude in Ebm, and a host of other things from other composers.

I know the first movement can be easily butchered, but that second bit - the presto - is what has my attention at the moment in terms of "uhhh, what am I gonna do with this now?"

For those of you that play or are currently working on this piece, what suggestions might you have?

Currently listening to Ashkenazy's recording of it; beautiful thing, imo.

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.
