Etude op8 no12 by Scriabin difficulty
« on: July 03, 2020, 02:33:39 AM »
I want to play this piece, but I donít know if I am able to. The hardest pieces I know so far are prelude in C sharp minor by rachmaninoff and sonata in c major no16 by Mozart.

Hi Random_pianist,

Scriabin Etude 8/12 is quite a jump from your current repertoire. The left hand has intervals of tenths and elevenths, and you'll have to roll them quickly if you can't reach them. There are also large jumps in the left hand and fast chords and octaves in the right hand that can cause tension.

But why not take a look at his other works? Take a listen to his opus 11 preludes and see if you enjoy any of them (number 14 is similar to the etude). The preludes range in difficulty, but I think the first few are the easiest. Another beautiful work is his etude op.2 no.1. I haven't played this piece, but I believe it's less difficult than 8/12 :)

Try a a few systems of the LH.  It would give you an idea of what is required of the piece. 
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach

thank you, I think I will. I think it also is too difficult, I just asked to calculate the time I would need until I can play it.
