Which piece to chose
on: August 16, 2017, 02:00:22 AM
Hi, I'm new on pianosteet.
I've resently played Elegy (Rachmaninov) and Grande Valse Brillante (Chopin). Now looking for a new piece. Have always wanted to play Chopin nocturne op.27 no.2 or if it's possible Rachmaninov prelude in b minor. Is the b minor prelude to difficult? Have played Chopin nocturne op.9 no.2 before, is the op.27 no.2 much harder?

Do you think i can do it or should I try something else? If so, what should i try instead?

Thank you:)

Chopin has a very distinct sound, there are only a few composers which can be compared in that respect, and so if you love Chopin always be working on a piece of his, and then something different.

The 27/2 isn't too difficult, work out the double notes with a good fingering and the rhythm and then (I can't remember the bar) but there's a small very fast section 48 notes in the bar, work that out and then the rest can fall into place, expression being the most demanding requirement as are most of his works. Lovely piece though.
