On January 29, 2016, from 3:00 PM to 5:00 PM, the First United Methodist Church of Oviedo is hosting Laurent Boukobza, who is playing Beethoven Sonata #29, the "Hammerklavier" for free!
How many of you play the piano?
Is there any fun BSA tunes I should do?
If you are new to the group, welcome!
Feel free to create your own discussion, or post replies, but please abide by the rules listed in the about section.
We enjoy having you in our group!
Welcome to the BSA group! Please state your current rank, and your favorite merit badges in order to get to know you a little more!
Congrats on being an Eagle Scout! It is a high honor! What was your Eagle Project? What were some of your favorite merit badges? Did you receive your Order of the Arrow award? Have a great time.
I'm always looking for hymns arranged for the flute and piano. Anyone else?
“Music is the one incorporeal entrance into the higher world of knowledge which comprehends mankind but which mankind cannot comprehend.”
I’m new here.
Are you a parent who plans ahead of time for betterment of your kids? Then you must have thought what they would be doing in their summer vacation. If you are short of ideas then you can send them to piano lessons Michigan. They will be thanking you for having great fun in piano classes. Only you know why you have smartly invested in piano lessons.
I am new on this app and I am working on a large concerto of Tchaikovsky, My english isn’t very good because it ist’n my mother language, I’m from Chile.
Thank you everyone, for your support. For the goal of a classic collection, I hope it will grow to a good resource for all piano players out there.
Spread the word.
Which pianist, in your opinion, recorded the best Beethoven piano sonata cycle?
I enjoy Wilhelm Kempff's playing, and from what I've heard of Ashenasky's recordings, he comes a close second.
I highly recommend that those of you who haven't join this group do so: https://musescore.com/groups/letsreach2000members/sheetmusic

There are 3 other sonatas attributed to Beethoven marked as WoO. They may be spurious, If genuine they are all works composed prior to the first Opus 2 sonatas. they are as follows:
No. 33 in E flat major, WoO 47, No. 1 "Kurfurstensonaten"
No. 34 in F major, WoO 47, No. 2 "Kurfurstensonaten"
No. 35 in D major, WoO 47, No. 3 "Kurfurstensonaten"
Update (11-16-11): I forgot to mention three more sonatas by Beethoven that may also be spurious:
No. 36 in C major, WoO 51 supposedly written in 1798 after the 4th sonata.
No. 37 in G major, Anh 5, No. 1, also supposedly written in 1798
No. 38 in F major, Anh 5, No. 2
The latter two are Sonatinas. I just happen to have recordings of all of these.
You may participate also by submitting video performances of these pieces for the video score work that will need to be done.
If you have a fairly decent sound system and wish to submit a performance it would be greatly appreciated, and will be a great way to get some exposure, as these will eventually be posted to YouTube and other sites.
If you have a performance that you would like to submit, simply make a YouTube video, and it will eventually be tied to the score and sent to YouTube in a format that features this particular project.
Notify us of your performance by posting the URL below.
How is Project: Beethoven's Piano Sonatas coming? It's not necessary, but I'd very much appreciate a report from each of the members who are actively--or passively--helping.
