Variations on Nostalgia Boris Berman Plays Brahms and Silvestrov
In recent months, the 85-year-old Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov has received the world's attention more than ever due to the ongoing war. Silvestrov's piano music covers more than half a century, and it would be hard to find a better proponent for it than the composer's longtime friend Boris Berman, whose coming album offers a panorama of the composer's evolution. Berman has also just released a new Brahms album and feels an affinity between the two composers. Read more >>

CHOPIN Prelude n4 Op28
on: October 05, 2021, 05:37:39 PM
Hello friends,
I am a guitarist and I am working on several transcriptions of this magnificent prelude.
I listen with attention and a lot of pleasure to several versions and interpretations on the piano.

I wanted to ask you if you know any
piano performance where the melody is done in the left hand and not in the right hand?
For the guitar both have been tried, but the guitar not having sustained high notes, it goes better in the bass.

I also try to play it on the piano of course.
Thank you for your reply   :D :D

Hey man, very nice playing!

I don't know any piano performance where the melody is done in the left hand. It's kind of a thing in classical music to not change any details in the score, unless you are creating a new arrangement of a piece. And the Chopin prelude is perfect as it is, and pretty much sacred, so I doubt there are many pianists who would want to change it!
