When can I reach Appassionata/Islamey?
« on: November 24, 2008, 03:49:43 AM »
I've been playing piano for about a year and a half, and I recently finished Fantasie Impromptu after about a week of hard practice (prior to Fantasie Impromptu, I've played mostly nocturnes, waltzes, and mazurkas by Chopin and some Bach). I practice around 1.5 hours to 2 hours on weekdays, and I practice 3-4 hours on weekends.

So I have two questions:
1) Would beginning Beethoven's Appassionata be too big of a jump from the impromptu (I'm aware that the pieces are on way different levels)? If it is, what would be intermediary works that I could go through before attempting Appassionata?

2) And this one is probably far fetched...but down the road, when would be the most reasonable time for me to attempt Balakirev's Islamey?

Thanks. :)
