I'm bringing out the top notes and the lower notes. Though, should I make sure I hear all 4 melodies? Costa del Sol.
I just started on this piece myself. I do not think it is four different voices. This goes very fast, and I think the first two measures are played like ripples, with the sub-phrase being 8 notes long.
The accents start in the third measure on the eighth notes. Just my thoughts! It is a beautiful piece, and so far it falls under the hand pretty well.
Have fun with it! X26 My YouTube Channel. Yeah, I know it's supposed to be very fast. Though, I prefer it a bit slower. I think we are hearing the same thing, and just describing it differently.
The "two voices out" is what I mean be ripples or waves. That is how I phrase it as well. You have a nice start on it! Joined: May New York City.
I definitely don't think there are four voices. The RH is one melody line with maybe slight accents one each beat and maybe the 16th before each beat. I think you are making things much too complicated. I can already play it entirely. I'm trying to get it up to performance level, since my teacher is doing a student concert. I'm playong that piece, so I'm trying to find every subtle extra that it could bring.
And ripples of waves might be a nice analogy too! Joined: Oct Originally Posted by hyena. As far as the piano is concerned, sentiment is my forte. I keep science for Life. Doesn't this piece also have the 'power' to be played impressionistic though?
Because, if I'd play a Clementi piece like that it wouldn't sound good at all. Unlike Debussy Doctor Gradus. You have to discern the composer's intentions from the music itself, and the instructions he gives. Debussy is not slow in telling us when he wants something extra later, like un peu retenu or animez un peu then back to a tempo ; or m. But that's very far away from his obviously impressionistic pieces like Voiles.
Like many great composers, Debussy composed in a wide variety of styles, yet his music is always recognisably his. So far it sounds like this.
Would this be good, or too much pedal? It's obvious I still need to work on the end a lot, it doesn't feel natural yet. Joined: Jul Moo :. Joined: Aug Tim Adrianson. I would second Bennevis regarding Debussy's directives -- for some reason, many pianists feel that Impressionist music should be played and interpreted as a self-indulgent blur of "pretty sounds", with copious use of the damper pedal. But in fact, Debussy tells you, usually in detail, the effects that he wants in his various solo piano pieces, and these vary considerably from piece to piece.
It does him a disservice not to adhere to his quite precise directives. And a second point -- Debussy had a keen sense of humor: this piece is loaded with little humorous touches, intended to poke gentle fun at the boredom and struggle of piano exercises. It's well worth keeping that in mind when you play this piece. Originally Posted by Tim Adrianson. Bennevis, that's correct -- the final directive is intended to portray the student lurching headlong and headstrong towards the conclusion, so that he or she can finish with a dramatic flourish, and be done with it!
One of the many tongue-in-cheek asides that populate the Children's Corner Suite. That's a fun way to think about it. I've once read something, that it should be like: A student is practicing, but then At the B part get distracted, thus starts to explore a different key etc, the mood get very different. Then at the back to A, he regain focus of practice. Then with what you say Then he finally wants to rush towards the conclusion.
For now I'm trying to approach it like one would approach Bach, I suppose that helps a lot with rhythm. Though, right now the notes are still dry, it's just to illustrate the rhythm. Print Thread Show Likes.

Originally Posted by hyena I can already play it entirely. The way the piece is written means that any 'bumps' really do stick out, even at slow speeds. The only voices you need to bring out are the ones the composer clearly indicated with double stems. Originally Posted by hyena So far it sounds like this. As bennevis said "concentrate on perfect evenness of rhythm and dynamics" Practicing it in different rhythms might be helpful in making it more even rhythmically and dyamically.

Yes, that is more even rhythmically and dynamically. There are still places where it is uneven can you here them? Don't worry at all about the notes sounding dry. Show Likes. Our Most Popular Forums. Piano Forum. FAQ - Piano Forum.
