    I have come to the conclusion, after much work on Pierne’s Impromptu-Caprice, that there are pieces one must learn as a student, before one realizes just how hard they really are! And there are those that are so much more doable if you have at least learned the notes while young. When older, it is so much harder to learn certain kinds of things from scratch, and that includes, it seems, memorizing complicated pedal passages.

    Such pieces include:

    Pescetti Sonata

    Debussy Danses, Clair de Lune

    Impromptu-Caprice

    Mozart Concerto

    Britten Suite

    Salzedo Flight, Ballade

    Handel

    I thought so too, but as I go back to something it becomes easier.

    Students minds are much more in an acquiring state of mind, learning all the time. That is much harder for an adult to get back into.
