Get some lessons from Charles Rosen while he's still here. Or find one of his pupils, there must be some.

Very interesting backgrounds everyone.
Now, only if we could live up to playing as good as the teachers in our musical lineages. :( (I speak for myself)

Monica, how many years have you studied with Djordjevic?... He's a great Liszt interpreter; I am surprised that you don't play more Liszt?... I studied with mine for 9 years until 2nd year in college, then reality set in...


I said it before...we are like a little family here. Guess I'm the mom. :lol:

Anyway, I studied with Alexander for about 3 years. It was recently - my taking lessons again after a long break. You're right about him being a great Liszt interpreter. His last CD was the 2010 recipient of the Hungarian Liszt Society’s 35th Annual Franz Liszt International Grand Prix du Disque. I went with him when he recorded it. Very interesting experience! And I did play a few Liszt pieces while studying with him. But he introduced me to lots of other pieces that I never knew about, plus I was constantly bringing in my own pieces that I wanted him to teach me and so we just never had enough time to play everything....
I've stopped the lessons currently, but now that I'm comfortable in my new routine, maybe I can start up again. I'd love that! There is still plenty he can teach me!!

At least you're not the redheaded stepchild.

Can't I just claim that Liszt studied with Chopin?

10/12 is coming along quite nicely. Most of it really is easy, but there are a few LH bits that are just brutal. Mostly they just need practice, but I'm having a hard time figuring out the proper hand position to make this work:

Any advice would be appreciated.

Can you describe exactly where/what the problem is? Most people don't rate this as one of the more difficult parts; the section starting in G sharp minor usually causes more trouble.

Indeed, that part causes more trouble. But I think I've figured it out (that is, the bit I asked about) - it just requires a certain lightness and direction that I had to work out. I've mostly got this one down; I might post a practice recording of it in this thread in a week or so, along with 10/1, which is coming along. I'm also starting to get the hang of 10/4, now that I've figured out the right fingerings (I understand now why Nathan compared it to 10/2). 10/3 is also coming along so I might post practice recordings of all four next week (10/1, 3, 4, and 12). I'm spending less time on 10/2 for now, but still working on it a little, along with the Op. 25 etudes (1, 6, 7, 11, and 12).
