Understand... Smile I usually play it at the tempo I know I can. So i dont cheat like that untill I feel I dont hesitate too much.
As long as I can play the bars by hart, at a low tempo, I move on adding more bars Smile

Thats a good way to go. Although I always think I should just develop my sight reading so I would not need to learn everything by heart before I could actually play it geek

Yup sight reading can be powerful! It's VERY useful

Yeah, I agree. But, still to REALLY play pieces perfectly you must learn by hart. Dont ever see anyone on youtu performe grade 8-9-10.... By looking at sheets. I have seen a couple, but the have all the notes memorised but need a hint to tell them where they are cinda..

And my sightreading is really comming along. I have played a waltz, level 1/grade 1 just by sightread. After I saw Andrews lesson. And it was fun. I also think about intervalls all the time when I learn new pieces. But still, I dont think anyone could sightread Fantasy Improv or whats it called, and play it really good Razz If someone can, than let me know Very Happy

If Franz Liszt was still alive, he would probably be able to sight read a short waltz, mazurka, or even a prelude with ease. He's considered the greatest pianist in history, although there's no actual footage or recordings of him playing. History pretty much spoke for it's self when you're referring to Franz.

Yeah. I have only read a little about him yet. Actualle never heard of him until a week ago. Do you know about Maksim?
Well, after doing a concert in London he was described as the new Liszt =) He might be, I dont know. As you say, history is the only thing to rely on conserning Liszt. Would be easyer to compare if it where recordings of him.

But also I have heard of for instant; autistic children that can play really complicated pieces spoton right away, if they just hear it, so.. =)

No, I'm afraid that I've not heard of Maksim. I'll check him out, though. However, I strongly disagree with anyone trying to compare someone to Liszt as a pianist. Although I LOVE Liszt's work and in my opinion there are better composers but as a pianist I don't think anyone can touch Liszt. I wish there were recordings or videos of him playing just to catch a quick glimpse on his technique and how he interprets but sadly, he lived before video cameras. See what technology does to you? lol. I know it's a little hard to believe but if you read more about him you'll start to understand why, plus all the proof and such.

Check out http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franz_Liszt. Try and read the whole article when you have the time. It shouldn't take you more than two hours depending on how fast you read.

My Hungarian heart is proud to know the greatest pianist was a Hungarian cheers It also makes me happy that two of my favorites shared an intimate friendship (Chopin and Liszt)

Yeah Smile I understand what you are saying Smile Its fun. Im also proud of Grieg, even though he isnt as know apparantly as Liszt. But it all depends, I have heard lots of Grieg. And many others have knowledge of him. But I understand that Liszt was a greater pianist... Even though there isnt any recordings of his playing.

lol, Franz, Ferenc, whatever. Isn't Ferenc his name in Hungarian? If it is then, cool. But I'm going to stick with Franz because I'd probably embaress myself by calling him Ferenc when I don't know how to pronounce it, lol. I read that his close friends called him Franz but his real name pronounced in French is Ferenc. I'll have to get used to calling him that.

Oh and, yeah, I'd be proud if I was Hungarian as well. Who knows, maybe Maggie might be the next female "Liszt". We sha'll wait and see... Smile
