  • May 10, 2010 Six Metamorphoses

    Well, my music teacher let me play these metamorphoses recently, and I have to say, they're quite hard when you start. I mean, you have to practice a couple of days. What I found especially hard was that the time-signatures (is that the right word?I'm sorry...

    my English isn't great) doesn't always have the same lenght. But, when you've managed to play them properly, they're so pretty. I can absolutly recommend these parts. PS. It really helps when you Google the stories so you know what you're playing.
