A triplet of a half note and two eight notes?

Post by Pianoted on Wed Jul 21, 2010 11:28 am

Just when you think you have seen everything something new comes along. How do I play this?



A triplet consisting of a half note and two eight notes. What also puzzles me is the eight rest above the half note. How can I both play a note and take a rest at the same time? Doesn't make sense.

Help!

Smile

The rests are the same at the 8th notes. Which means the triplets just contain the three 8th notes. As the first note in the triplets is a rest, the first is silent. You play the half notes to there full value, so hold the note down whillst playing the triplets.

Hope that made sence :p Im really really tired lol

Thank you Alistair123, this made perfect sense. Been working a lot, or maybe the heat draining your energy? It's been very hot here in Sweden the last days and it drains my energy.

Now I understand this better, first I thought the half note was a part of the triplet, but I see now that it consists only of the rest and the two eight notes (referring to the first and third triplet, the second and fourth ones are normal eight note triplets.)

Think I'll have to admit this piece I'm trying out is a bit out of my league. Piano Concert nr. 21 by Mozart. Just love it and wanted to learn it. I found a very good performance on YouTube, which I decided to use to learn the proper fingering. This one here.

Here is the link to the sheet music (the maker of the video distributes it free, no copyright infringement intended.)

Thanks again.

Wow that's a crazy song, it has difficult rhythm, trills, grace notes and turns (the S looking things are turns, right?). Btw I live in Sweden too and I'm sweating when sitting inside lol.

Aye it has been the heat I guess. Been gardening all day Smile.

I love that concerto very much! If you are learning the piano parts, does that mean you have a recording of the orchestra, without the piano in? I was looking for such a recording a whille ago, no luck.

Also, im a huge huge huge fan of Stephen! (Smalin). Id love to see him on these fourms Smile

Yes Rickard, it's a difficult piece. When I got my first digital piano few months back it was a built-in song and the piano had lighted keys telling you which notes to play. Then I started learning the right part (without using sheet music, not as hard.)

But when I printed the score I saw it was probably out of my league for now. Maybe I'll be learning short parts every now and then and will be able to play it next year!

Alistair123 I don't have a recording of an orchestra doing concert 21. Smalin has a link to the full score on PDF (every instrument, solo and together) and points to classicalarchives.com for MIDI files. I saw there were a few MIDIs of PC 21.

Yes it would be nice to see Stephen here, great pianist. I posted a comment on his YouTube channel once.
