For the Grade 8 Piano exams this year, I started learning three pieces last year. They were the Prokofiev, the Beethoven, and the Scarlatti. I always like to look up the pieces on youtube and hear how others perform the pieces.
I have pretty much learnt the pieces but they are still quite slow. Now I am working on speeding them up.
This is the new piece that I was given today to learn. It starts at 5.28 if you fast forward you can get straight to the Prelude and it finishes somewhere just after 7 minutes. It is this Prelude, No. 7 from Ten Pieces, Op.12, of Sergey Prokofiev.
The last piece is the Beethoven 3rd movement from the Pathetique.
