help needed!
i have been playing th piano for around two years and at the moment i am playing lots of different things like Bach's 15 two part inventions and Chopins fantasie impromptu. i am very interested in starting Brahms First Hungarion dance and was wondering if anyone could give me some advice and tips. so far i have played the first page and found it hard to read (reading sheet music is not my strong point) but quiet easy to play...any help would realy be apreciated..

Except for the F major Hungarian Dance most are very difficult, way beyond the Bach or Chopin IMHO. Kissen playes 3 or 4 of these dances on youtube.com.

My only advice would be to start with easier brahms pieces like some of his waltzes, then work your way up.

You are surely talking about the solo versions of the dances , right? I don't think the 4-hand versions are difficult, but I've only looked at the scores, never attempted one of them.

if my teacher considers it as hard (as one who has played piano for most of his life), then it should be hard for anyone at your level.

Could someone please provide a link to the score, or perhaps post a snapshot of it. I'm now quite curious about the dances (solo versions) and the technical difficulties they impose.

Thank you

Scroll down a bit for the solo versions.

Thank you for the link.
This is very interesting, it seems that Brahms turned most single notes into double notes or chords to compensate for the missing bass effects of the other 2 hands. Or maybe he just aimed to make the dance relatively difficult. It's still quite managable and I might just start with it as soon as I finish Chopin's ballade, I'm sure it'll be an exciting experience.
