My honest opinion of the Mendelssohn's Rondoby anonymouson January 14th, 2012
I'm in eighth grade and just beginning my fifth year of piano study.
I am a big fan of Chopin but my teacher is trying to get me to appreciate different composers and she assigned me this piece because I like to play pieces with a rapid tempo and she wants me to develop my fingering strength and technique.
It is a good piece to help develop fingering strength, scale speed and arpeggios.
One part of the piece I enjoy most is building up to the fast part. I like how it stays rapid throughout and never slows down, but crescendos and decrescendos keep it interesting.
There are many key changes that make it more challenging but fun.
I do not have it to performance level yet but it's coming along.
