    Default Charles Ives - Piano Sonata No. 2, III. "The Alcotts"

    I would like to learn how to play the third movement from Ives' Concord Sonata. However, I am having trouble playing the large chords in the left hand. I would appreciate any suggestions regarding this piece, especially about reaching all the notes in those chords. Thanks!

    I'm not a pianist. Sorry. But, what a magnificent Sonata, the Ives Concord is!
    Feeling peckish, I put on my trainers and a khaki jumper and left my flat, only to find that some tosser had parked his lorry right across the pavement.

    Did you ask your teacher?
