Memorizing slow movements
on: August 28, 2005, 11:30:52 AM
Hi,

I'm practising on the Bach Prelude & Fuge no 8 from book 1, and the tempest sonata by Beethoven. The slow movement in this piece is TERRIBLE to memorize. Any suggestions on how I can do it quickly, not only these pieces, but in general?
Why was the piano invented?
So the musician would have a place to put his beer.

Practice it forte and extremely legato. That works for me.
