Monica, I remember a thread just about that passage on Great Pianists (a Yahoo Group). You find the thread here: http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/gr ... sage/41038

Thanks, coccobill. I have just signed up for that group. I never knew it existed, before.
And this pedalling thing - I am sort of bewildered. This piece is supposed to clip along pretty fast and I'm already changing the pedal often. Maybe you are supposed to hit it twice while also hitting the pedal. I don't know...I'll read all that information over on that group place and maybe get a clue.
If you really want to cheat, listen to the professional the recordings and slow its tempo using software.
That's another good idea, rinis. When my CD arrives, I will pop it in my computer. I have no idea how to slow it down, but I'll try. However, knowing me, I will delete/erase the entire disc, so I should probably copy/burn it first.
Ah, Granados, I could have guessed Though still no idea which piece it might be Not any of the big well-known works for sure.
This one sounds quite a handful, and cold nicely prepare you for the Goyescas, the non plus ultra of Spanish romanticism.
This is the number 5 piece in the Escenas Romanticas set. I'm working on no. 3, as well, which also has some wild things going on. But if these are easier than the Goyescas, then forget the Goyescas.
