The Women Behind Chopin’s Music

Chopin revolutionised the nature of piano music composed both technically and emotionally but the actual musical instrument that provided his greatest source of inspiration was the female voice. In this documentary marking the 200th anniversary of Chopin’s birth, pianist and trailblazer James Rhodes explores not only the Polish master’s music but also his complex relationships with women.

Anyone who is still learning is a student.

As for me:
Beethoven Sonata op 10 no 1
Chopin Nocturne op 9 no 1
Debussy Voiles
Ginastera Danzas Argentinas
Schonthal Invention in E

Beethoven's Sonata 6, Op. 10 no. 2.
Czerny's etudes op.299
(starting) Chopin's Polonaise op. 40 n. 2

And maybe a Lyadov's prelude, Shostakovich's fantastic dances or Ravel's pavane pour une infante défunte.  Smiley

I'm working my way through Albeniz Iberia. I'm approaching it as if I get the ground work done now then maybe I will actually be able to perform the thing in my lifetime.

I'm currently finishing work on El Polo and Jerez, which will bring me to 6/12 Smiley

Prokofiev Concerto 2 - 1st mvt (bringing to recording standards soon)
Prokofiev Concerto 2 - Finale (learning, so many notes, some easy to play others rather unreasonable)
Liszt Rhapsody 2 - learned, solving technical issues to high standards, ignoring the rest.
Scriabin - Guirlandes is so attractive. Flammes sombres later.
Prokofiev Sonata 1 - learning from the score

Quote
Debussy "The Snow is Dancing", Childrens Corner (Just picked it up, strangely difficult)

By chance it showed up on a cd that was running and i heard this again. It really is effective imagery and writing. Debussy is inimitable.

Must be nice. I've not turned my attention to spanish music yet, but Albeniz is really something to look forward to one day.

Various Christmas standards arranged for jazz solo piano.  Nothing too crazy though  since it's just seasonal side projects so can't dedicate too much time to it....
Had stopped practicing for qyite a while, seems to have helped, able to recharge the batteries so to speak, and i have seen this happen as was told to me by mentors of mine in the past, the mind-brain will continue to work o  things in the subconcious so when one pucks the music back up certain elemebts hace moved forward even w absolutely no practice.

So  now im working on a set of 3 related and consecutive classical sonatas,

will pick couple of christmas jazzy or std pieces (i suppose its thst time if year again, in my primary years we always shifted to working the christmas arrangements in october and i never outgrew it, next spring will start early ie april-ish on more advanced versions)

Workg through the whole nier piano collections book again. I need to record that thing by 2017 so i can move on to ther volumes (one goal is learning to hande large number of pieces at one time and also increase amount of rep in my hands for impromptu on the spot on demand performances and such)

A kapustin etude for a bit of pizaz and flash--itll be a busy fall and winter  Cool

hmm.

New:
Bach - Sinfonia 7 BWV 793 - Getting voicing perfect is tough
Poldini - Op 93 Nr 4 "She Smiles". This one's rhythms are super annoying
Haydn - Sonata C Major Hob XVI:48 - So fast in the Rondo.

Polishing:
Chopin - Preludes 4 and 6 - Simple pleasures
Mendelssohn - Song Without words Op. 19 Nr 1. - Beautiful
Mozart - Fantasia d minor K397 - Still struggling to understand this piece.

I am also learning my new piano. Its amazing, but hard to control perfectly and over emphasizes any mistake. So sensitive. Looking forward to its rewards when playing properly.

added a Kosenko etude per remarks in audition room Kosenko UL reply.  It'll slow down the Kapustin but I sit on etudes for ever since they take me quite a long time to learn properly to performance standard so not too worried, can't hurry those things. Should't slow down the other stuff though, it's just faster tempo etudes and concerto's that take me forever.

I'm practicing  " Out Of Darkness" which is the name of my new composition as named by my wife. It's evolving shall we say or morphing might be another term. It's maybe two weeks old now.

Beyond that it's almost time for me to start a couple of Christmas arrangements of traditional carols.  Last year I did We Three kings to memory but read a couple of others. I like to take simple arrangements and re arrange them. Or even just a melody from a Fake Book or Lead Sheet and arrange from that..

To the poster who wondered why seemingly advanced people are posting in the Students forum ? Because we all are learning at any level. I personally am not all that advanced, and also not a professional performer, had 11 years of piano training in classical and contemporary music, had 5 years of music with accordion as a kid. But *composition* ,as they come to me, is totally new in the last two years. So ya, I'm learning. I'm a student learning and applying skills to my own music. I'm learning to apply harmony and some rhythm patterns beyond the level the piece introduces itself to me as.  And technique is always worth learning more about as well.

Depressing the pedal on an out of tune acoustic piano and playing does not result in tonal color control or add interest, it's called obnoxious.

The chopin waltz 64 no. 2 - the grace notes is killing me, I've been practicing it for almost two weeks now and it still sounds all jumbled up.

The K. 545 - having nightmares with scales, uneven sound when fingers 3(black key) - 4(white key) - 5(white key) playing at 100-110mm.

Beethoven - Sonata Op.28

Bach - Goldberg Variations

You guys work on so much at once! I tend to lose a sense of direction if I learn more than three pieces at a time.

Best,

I hurt my right hand carrying firewood, so right now the only thing I'm practicing is Brahms transcription of the Bach Chaconne for the left hand. It's a great exercise and closer to the original than the Busoni arrangement.

That is terrible but I hope your hand gets well very soon! That is great that you are concentrating on your LH during this time.

and your point is? I see little wrong w the pairing, actually i think it is smartz.  Given the significant challenge the prelude poses, it is prudent to balance w a less demanding work  so that attention and focus can be given to the prelude.

     Hahaha, thanks I guess. My teacher actually told me it was a bad idea and too much work, I was studying the Rachmaninoff Prelude Op.32 No.8 for fun as it is supposedly one of the less demanding preludes. Now I only try to work on a maximum of four pieces at a time. Right now I'm studying:

     Bach: Sinfonia No. 2 in C minor

     Beethoven: Piano Sonata Op. 2 No.1 in F Minor

     Mendelssohn: Lieder ohne Worte Op. 19 No. 3 "Jagerlied" (STILL)

     Chopin: Nocturne Op. 9 No. 1 in B-flat minor

     POSSIBLE FIFTH PIECE:
 
     One of Bartok's "Six Dances in Bulgarian Rhythm"

     A less demanding load, but difficult enough at the same time.

I'm concentrating on a simple Czerny exercise at the moment, in order to help me to read music as much as developing hand independence.

Liszt - La Campanella
Ravel - Gaspard De La Nuit
Dance of the Knights - just that excerpt.
Rachmaninoff - Piano Concerto No. 3 Op 30: I
Also fooling around with My Funny Valentine and maybe it's time to start exploring jazz and understanding improvisation and chords more (:

Also might I add for fun that I have a King Charles cocker spaniel and I think he gets annoyed by the watery notes of Gaspard and La Campanella's high notes
