At the risk of being called a nosey newcomer, I think a read through of virtuoso418's posts will show that the grammar and syntax are far beyond even the most able teenager.
Coherence and maturity are usually highly correlated.

I know musical geniuses who don't even puncuate. They use the stupid ... marks to seperate thoughts. It's a pain in the *** to read, but some of them give incredible insight and stories. Likewise, there are idiots who take the time to pander to grammer police.

Agreed. But, when you manage to get through the ..., it's worth it.
They are the people who can actually PLAY Campanella after 3 years of study, and not have to obsess over it, to the exclusion of more profitable study and technique development.

Are you a musical genius? And I mean that in the context of your own definitions...

Maybe you COULD play it after 3 years of intense study.

But pandering to the grammar police, (not to mention improving your education), would serve you better, than pandering to your obsessive need to be able to play ONE piece of music, badly.

When you grow up, and mature, you will understand what I, and others, have been hinting at.

Until then, this discussion, and others where you feel defensive, will revolve around vacuous statements and flawed reasoning.

Oh to be young and know everything...

Good luck with the Liszt.

Not that I care, really. smile

"Are you a musical genius?"
No.

Guys, let me sum up my previous posts, again, so nobody misunderstands me, again.

I could concievably do it with sufficient time and practice, but I choose not to.

Do you plan on returning to it at a later date?
I was mesmerised when I first heard it, many years ago, (along with the 2nd Rhapsody), and really wanted to give it a go.
However, it was obviously way too difficult, and I lost 'faith'. I don't plan on returning to it, as it is more beneficial for me to play other things. Likewise with the rhapsody. At the moment, neither are worth my while...

You're really overrating it. I think its quite achievable, granted it would take a few months but it's easily plausible for a 3 year pianist to learn it. It's all down to the way they are being taught (its my opinion that students who are pressured to do grades will never be able to catch up with the students who aren't)

The problem with most teenagers (possibly even younger) is how provoked they are with "big" words, if there's such a thing. There are uncommonly used words, but that doesn't make it a big word. I love it when someone has to scrutinize someone else's word choice because it looks like an attempt to look intelligent, but that's a normal accusation.
Me, why do I choose this type of diction? It's simply the influence around me, i'm surrounding by people who speak like that. So i can't help it. But i'm not going to try to convince you if im intelligent or not.

And valaking, I love you how contradict yourself.

Wow, I must really suck then. frown I mean, I've been playing for maybe 6-8 years and I still haven't mastered the Rhapsody after 6 months of study. Is this way below average or what?

Yeah you suck! :p

No, of course different people have different speeds of learning, its all subjective anyway I was just generalising.

When you say 'haven't mastered' HR2, what do you mean? Learnt all the notes and working on getting it to speed?

I may try it in a few years. It's basically a showpiece and there are others as well that I'd like to learn. It's a blast to play though and the leaping is not something that I have found terribly difficult. It does take some work though.

If that's all you can come up with... :rolleyes:

Yeah - a very visual piece, to be sure. Check out the original - the final movement of the 2nd violin concerto by Pag... It's a little different, but Liszt does a superb transcription. (His first transcription is a little 'thick', but the more popular version we hear, is 'better')..

Maybe you should check out all the Paganini Etudes, and put this into perspective. The 4th is accessible, and the 6th is very rich in sonority.

MMSGA, I've looked at the other Paganini etudes, both versions. While, yes, the 4th and 6th are perhaps easier than Camanella, the others... eek

Yeah, pretty much. I can play the piece from start to finish at a decent slowed tempo, but when I try to play several places at normal speed, I start to omit and hit wrong notes. It's like my left hand starts to panic if I go too fast and the rapid octave/chord-octave/chord leaps become impossible.

I am learning it next semester for Uni, I have to do 1 Baroque Piece, 1 Classical, 1 Romantic and 2 20th Cent. So I would like to do the Hungarian Rhapsody no 2, however, no 4 is easier if your thinking of playing one of them.

Well I wouldn't put yourself down then, while the majority of the piece is managable there are some real tricky octave leaps smile

(I cant play them at the tempo I'd like to either)
