Ask Cortot ;). Horowitz took lessons from Cortot because of his splendid double notes and trills. I was a bit suprised when I read that!

Well, one relatively difficult exercise you can try is to execute trills in 3rds. Start this exercise slowly until you feel comfortable, and very slowly proceed faster. Also try this in different rhythms for the sake of muscular development. Try this with fingers 4 and 5, then 3 and 4. Try doing this daily for a week. Then, go back and try performing regular trills slowly at first, and then gradually working your way up to speed. Also, make sure that you are using rotation in your forearm to give the trill momentum and energy. Hope this helps!!! I find trills to be oen of the most difficult techniques to master on piano....

Horowitz often accents the first one or two note of the trill and make the rest of the notes pianissimo.

Remember, there is an optimum speed for trills, depending on the piano and the room. Usually people try to play them too quickly. Experiment with different speeds. Make sure the trill is perfectly even.

I don't think so, but they do go faster when you keep your wrist loose and move your fingers very fast.

if you have good technique, meaning loose wrists and good fingers, you can do exercises on the lid of the piano or a table top

A good technnique is knowing how to play how you want, how to play accurate, play fast, play good, play with nuances etc.

play what you want? I think that only the profs can do that. I can't play rach 3 but do I have a bad technic? probably, I don't think it's good how should I practice on my technic?

can somebody tell me that step by step?
