Shubert Impromtu op 90 no 2
on: May 10, 2004, 12:56:28 AM
I am currently learning this piece.  I dont have any questions about it.  But in your opinion could the first part possibly double as a mini etude for a younger student?  Its not that its hard but it teaches a lot in a few pages it has a lot of funky fingerings and perpetual motion.

Absolutely.  :D

This is an ideal Czerny replacement. Teach the second part too. Also a good way to learn the Eb major scale! (for the right hand at least). And you are right there are lots of technical problems to be solved: speed on scale passages, figuring out the best fingering, learning how to learn and practice this kind of pattern, bringing up the left hand melodic line and making it ring while the right hand goes about its business unperturbed. This is an excellent learning piece, and once learnt it is an excellent performance piece.

Good luck!
