Prokofiev op. 11
on: December 05, 2016, 02:49:44 PM
With winter break coming up, I have some repertoire choices to make to get a head start on the next semester. Prokofiev op. 11 is currently on the table as one of the pieces to learn for various reasons, but I am not sure how to begin getting though the piece.

For those of you who have learned it, what were some of the things that helped you along with it? Especially regarding fingering and the general awkwardness of the piece, how did you go about learning each section? Any tips for the learning process?

Thanks in advance!

This piece is extremely difficult. Overall i would say play very light and count as you play these have helped me very much. Start slowly (60 to the quarter possibly) because i'd say memorizing and even learning takes a lot of muscle memory. Pick your voices in certain spots. My teacher told me think of a symphony you don't want to play everything forte know what you want to voice. good luck!
Repertoire:
Rachmaninoff Concerto 2
Haydn Sonata 50
Prokofiev Toccata and Suggestion Diabolique
Liszt La Campanella, Hungarian Rhapsody 6, and Concerto No. 1
And other stuff...
