scriabin second sonata g#minor
on: March 01, 2004, 05:37:23 PM
I am contemplating learning this work soon as i really think it is so beautiful but wonder if it is too technically demanding. What are people's opinions on its technical difficulty? I am a very sensitive musician of about grade 8 if not a bit more so any tips would be great.

Have you seen the music? This is an incredibly difficult piece that does not sound too difficult, but when you combine technical and rhythmic difficulty, it can get scary.

Are you talking about grade 8, ABRSM?  I was 13 when I took grade 8 ABRSM, and I think I would've gone crazy if I had tried Scriabin's 2nd back then...it's a lot trickier than it sounds!! I'd say wait a few years- great piece, though!
