Hi everyone
I was wondering if anyone has learnt the above pieces, in particular "Musettes". It's very tricky and I wondered if anyone had any tips - particularly for the large stretches in some of the later trills.
thanks in advance!

I just love 'Out Doors'! I performed three movements two weeks ago (see youtube links at the bottom). Last week I started with Barcarolle. Making 'Musettes' the only movement I haven't tried.
Why not Musettes? For me it is not so much the large stretches, as my hands are quite large. But rather other technical challenges like double thrills in fourths, and accenting the large printed note, where it is the second, not first, of a group of six 32nd notes. But most importantly, it's for me musically the hardest piece of the set. It’s hard to score on any of the traditional three aspects of music: melody, harmony and rhythm. There's little melody anyway; the harmony is unconventional and dissonant (I think meant to imitate off tune musettes on a well tunes piano!), and the rhythm is a not very noteworthy 2/4 pulse. This is not meant to say it’s poor music, because when I hear it, there is something immensely appealing in it for me. The rawness? The fact that somehow music returns here to mere sound?

So much for now, I would like a lot to share more about this great music. Are you also playing the other pieces? Then I would be happy to send you my views. Also, I wrote the wikipedia article about Out of Doors http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Out_of_Doors (and the article about Night music).

.. it seems to me that the inherent nature [of the piano tone] becomes really expressive only by means of the present tendency to use the piano as a percussion instrument - Béla Bartók, early 1927.
