help!!!!!!!!!!
on: March 18, 2004, 02:12:48 AM
I am addicted to the Prokofiev, and Scriabin Sonatas and I don't know where to start or how to go about learning them, if anyone could give me suggestions as to which ones to learn first and how to learn them the easiest (if it's possible cause I know they are extremely difficult pieces)  also does anyone have the Prokofiev concertos no. 3,4, and 5 that they could email me?

Thanks

Whoops, I just completely answered your question wrongly. I've gotten rid of the useless thing I just wrote.
Um....... I hope someone can help you! I just got the music for Scriabin's sonata no. 9 the other day and it looks pretty tricky but mostly because of the timing.

scriabin wrote many preludes, and it might be helpful to choose a set with a similar opus number to the sonata you like and work on it first. this helps me to get familiar with the style and musical language which can help you to learn faster, and the sonata will stay fresh and exciting. just a thought, if you have the patience..

also, these are good pieces in their own right and not so long!

for prokofiev, i'm not sure. how about starting with no. 3 or no. 4?
