Etude Op.25/5
« on: April 12, 2016, 12:37:08 AM »
I need help on the middle section(piu lento) part of this piece,especially the part where you have to play the arpeggios in sixteenth notes. I can't seem to play clearly, and during the c sharp minor arpeggio, how can I get a 1 on g#?
Beethoven Op 2/2
Chopin Op 20, maybe op 47/38
Debussy Etude 7
Grieg Op 16
Want to do:
Chopin Concerti 1 and 2
Beethoven Waldstein
Ravel Miroirs

In terms of just learning how to play the arpeggios in this piece it is not too difficult if you have experience w this sort of fingering configuration, which you will confront again , in more difficult setting , in the winter wind.

It is hard to explain here how to facilitate movement w your right hand but I suggest you look at or study czerny 299 f major arpeggio two hands study , 740 no 14 or 740 no 28.
Work in progress:

Rondo Alla Turca

For the C#m one I think it starts with thumb on G#, index on A/pinky on E, and then ring finger on C# and then it goes into the actual one?

For me it was all wrist motion that did it. Because the thumb is on a black key, wrist needs to go forward and drop a bit, but then needs to come BACKWARDS and drop even more for when the index/ring finger play on the white keys.
I am trying to become Franz Liszt. Trying. And failing.
