Scales after scales after scales... today was the exam... thankfully I got a 9/10 smile

Also a little of the Liszt 12th hungarian rhapsody, Shost 1st piano concerto and a bit of Schumann's toccata.

1. Rachmaninoff's 2nd concerto - 3rd movement (and I amused myself with a few measures from the first one)
2. Clair de Lune... I need something lighter when the exhaustion sets in smile

Oh wow, this thread is still active! That's pretty great.

I haven't logged in here in a long time and I've fallen off the piano bandwagon somewhat due to some serious personal problems. I still recognize some of you guys. Good work. (:

I started learning the piano today, as I got it delivered, and I've been having so much fun with Erik Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1.

Learning to read the notes of a piece you really love seems to accelerate the learning process.

My routine for the last few days:

-Worked on 8-bar sections of Chopin Prelude #19 up to 75% tempo, and then played through the whole thing slow. (I told me teacher I wanted to work on technique this summer, so this is what I get!)

-Exposition (1st mvt.) and 2nd mvt. of Mozart Concerto #21.

-Daily technique (scales+arps, a few of the Brahms 51, Moskowski octaves etude, Chopin Op. 10/4)

I'm working on at least 10 pieces atm, including:

Mozart Fantasie

Chopin 10 no. 3
Ballade Op. 23

Paderewski Minuet in G

Rachmaninoff Prelude 23 5

Clementi Sonatine Op. 36 No. 2 (don't ask)

Today I practised or refined: Chopin 10-3, Ballade briefly, the Rach prelude above, something from Heller... I think I also did that sonatine... And I played some.

I kind of explored Horowitz' variations on Carmen something, half-mild-pratice-like, half-playing, but it gave me pain in my hand so now I'm waiting for that to subside and then I'll go back and never do that with pieces like that again.

Who cares who practiced today?

Why revoke this dead thread after two years?

Jason, couldn't you just create a new topic if you wanted to attract attention?

Why hide behind this thread?

Be brave.

Hakki, obviously some people do care, and they like the idea that the thread has been revived. If you don't care...don't read it - but don't insult those who are interested.

I didn't practice yesterday because I had a very long piano lesson after a full day of work. We worked on Beethoven's Opus 54 for over 90 minutes. My teacher gets carried away when we work on Beethoven, whom he loves. He demolished my music - in a positive way. Now I have to take it apart, slow it down and work on it in chunks with the metronome. My counting isn't EXACTLY right, my octaves need more work and I'm still conquering residual tension.

Hakki, I don't have anyone at home or work to talk to about my practicing. I find it interesting to chat and hear what others are working on and struggling with.


Best regards,

Deborah

That is one of my favorite sonatas! Deceptively difficult, isn't it! But so beautiful.

I'm loving it. The 2nd movement is so much fun to play. I've got it up to tempo but it's a little uneven. I have to remember to keep the tempo under control so I can leave some "space" to speed up the last page. It may seem odd but I'm finding the first movement to be very difficult to get just right. It's slower but there are so many contrasts and the counting has to be exact. Ugh.

It's Friday so Shabbat Shalom to you Shabbat Shalom!


Best regards,

Deborah

Working toward a recording next week of Larry Polansky's "Three Pieces for Two Pianos" with Marilyn Nonken for an upcoming New World CD. It was written in 2007;

The composer's coming tomorrow to listen to us.

Difficult piece! Let me know if anyone wants me to describe what "interrupted tuplets" are...

Same here with today's lesson on Op 2 no. 2 last movement!

I always feel that I must completely re-learn the piece after a lesson in which I have been demolished. Whether that means it was a bad lesson or a good one...

There are so many things I think I'm doing one way but it turns out, when my teacher listens, that I'm doing them another way. I really need to start recording myself more. Like maybe every practice session.

I don't think you've had a bad lesson; what you've got is a good teacher. Learning to really listen to myself has been a hard journey because I get distracted by perfect music that is running through my brain. Listening to a recording of myself is painful but a very good teacher. Go for it.


Best regards,

Deborah

Possibly one of my favorite movements. This sonata is so underplayed, perhaps due to its difficulty, but I think the last movement is so gorgeous (albeit extra-challenging!). Have you done the other movements as well? The first movement is exciting and fun as well!
