Widmung vs. Scherzo No.2
on: July 22, 2008, 03:30:22 AM
I have an upcoming recital in six months and I have narrowed it down to two pieces:
Schumann/Liszt - Widmung
Chopin - Scherzo No.2

What do you think are the pros and cons of each song?  To you, which one is more difficult?  What should I watch out for in each piece?  Thank you for all of your help!

The biggest (and most obvious) difference. Widmung: 4:00  Scherzo: 9:50.

The Widmung is easy but sounds rather difficult. The Chopin Scherzo is the opposite, far harder than it sound, particularly the transition from the central section to the recapitulation. Good luck, be careful out there!

I love the quote about music and cats, my thoughts exactly, I don't know what I would do with them!
