Piano World is definitely my main source for discovering new music ( what's old news for many of you is usually brand new to me ).
After reading some threads lately that mentioned these pieces, I've been enjoying familiarising myself with them.
I would love to learn them, but at this moment in time ( and without a teacher ) I don't think it would be wise to take them on.
That being said, I haven't been able to resist trying out #2 and #3. Together they are only two pages of music and seem doable for me.
A question or two for anyone who is confident in these pieces....first, how are they pedalled? My score ( Imslp ) shows markings for pedal, but at the same time asks for staccato...am I to assume that they mean use sostenuto? As far as #2 goes that's really my only problem apart from only being able to play it correctly at half speed, and I'm fine with that, I'm not in a rush! I'm not using the pedal at all at the moment for that one.
#3 it's the same thing with the pedal markings being used at the same time as staccato markings...I've been using a little sustain and it sounds ok-ish....just not sure if it's correct. My other hurdle is the (trills? mordents? I just don't know anymore! ). They sound...well...pretty crappy frankly, and I've resorted to practicing using just a slurry little grace note where the trill should be. Anyone who wants to take the time to tell me exactly how they should go I would be very grateful. Any other insights are always appreciated!
