One day I mean to learn organ and harpsichord (I suspect this latter isn't going to be too much of a step). But I will need to afford them, so that day could be quite remote. First off I at least want a decent piano and a place of my own. I am almost certainly going to die in squalour, surrounded by a library and reproduction period instruments.
Can anyone here play Scriabin - Etude Op. 8 No. 12
How difficult is it? Because I just watched it on youtube, and it looks very very difficult.. I'm scared....
Just for those who are asking about it, be wary about starting to learn organ because it can seriously feck up your piano technique (if you've learnt about technique that much). It's quite a bit different tbh. When I went for an audition for a uni, the bloke could tell I'd played the organ because of the way I was playing.
The pedals might be a bit difficult at first and I suppose it required a bit more thought that co-ordinating the two hands together.
I remember the organ being absolutely obsessive about touch, articulation, fingering etc. with lots of finger switching to keep the legato and carefully timing staccatos to create an accent on the next note. Even worse with the pedals. Likewise, playing a lot of light action synth can mess up your piano tone.
