Do not see this window again for the duration of the session. He was a good violinist, but only a competent pianist and by no means a virtuoso, although he had given a couple of recitals whilst in his early 20s in Switzerland.
He didn't compose at the piano either, preferring to use it only to check a passage once he had composed it. Nonetheless, his first 59 compositions were for the piano and he continued to write many pieces for the instrument even once he had established his reputation in much larger forms. By a large margin, Raff wrote more music for solo piano than for any other medium.

His First Symphony had won a major prize and received great acclaim, his chamber and choral works were attracting attention and he seems to have had no difficulty in attracting publishers. Yet despite this success he was still working as a teacher and a critic and it was still necessary for him to write popular piano pieces to keep money flowing into the household. He was a born educator; for many years he taught piano at two girls schools in Wiesbaden and later his composition class at the Hoch Conservatory in Frankfurt was greatly admired.
He also had a ready pen, writing music criticism through his life until he took up the Frankfurt post. It is surprising, therefore, that he never wrote a musical textbook of any sort and his piano etudes are for the most part wholly artistic in conception and not intended as pianistic exercises.

Articulation specificity is key, and one would do well to interpret the staccato marks as "lighter, separate" than simply "shorter. Errata: In M. In the last measure, play the lower octave on the split. Note: the low D in m. Make use of the written articulations and dynamic markings as a guide for nuance, expressive phrasing, and appropriate rubato. The high B in m.

Note that the high B tunes in a lowered 2nd position. Players will need to be sure to adjust the tuning for the B, the A, and the G as they will each tune in a slightly different 2nd position.
The descending G major arpeggiatic pattern in mm. However, it is critical to make appropriate micro-adjustments in tuning. Note: The third section, mm. Errata: Measure change the B on the 4th eighth note beat the first note of the second rhythmic figure to a low E on the first ledger line below the staff. Performance Guide: C-sharp minor is a friendly key for the trombone. The slide movement through scale patterns and arpeggios is smooth and physically efficient. The key also fits uniquely within the trombones practical range which allows for maximum melodic content.
Blazhevich beautifully utilizes these qualities in Etude 86 by showcasing the full range and expressive potential of the trombone. This etude contains a wealth of musical expression, and players will need to navigate a complex relationship between melody, rhythm, and phrasing. The melody lies within a rhythmic framework of syncopation that often places the melodic weight on either the 3rd or 6th eighth-note of the measure, offset from the stronger pulses on the 1st and 4th eighth-notes. A fast tempo is not a hallmark of this music.
Keep the performance tempo near the indicated 96 bpm, and work for beauty, sustain, and phrasing. The con anima in m. Players should try to achieve the con anima feel through a liberal use of expressive phrasing and a broad dynamic range.
Players should use a metronome with subdivided eighth-notes from the very first reading. Once rhythmic accuracy is confident and exact, players will then need to incorporate the use of appropriate, yet expressive rubato. For example, add an organic tapering of the tempo in the cadential figures at m.
Also, adding a very subtle accelerando in the arpeggios at the beginnings of phrases can help to provide the con anima feel.
Even more critically, the arpeggios function as harmony to drive the melodic line. Each note should be intoned smoothly with controlled pitch and your absolute best and most consistent tone quality. Practice the arpeggios slowly. Work for beauty, sustain, control, and pitch.
Measures are likely the most technically demanding of the etude—difficult, but not impossible, It is critical to make intervallic leaps such as these part of your everyday warm-up and fundamental training. Focus on the flow of sound through each pitch. One could imagine how a great cellist could perform this music with perfect beauty and free of any technical issues.
Work for that! Russian music is highly expressive, so performing this type of music in strict time without flow or dynamics shaping will give the music a sterile and flat sound. Conversely, overdoing the rubato and being haphazard with time will give the music a contrived and insincere feel. Players who perform the music with beauty of tone as the priority, with proper timing and phrasing, and with a full expressive range of dynamics will be in strong contention for advancement throughout the TMEA audition process.
Note: measure 28, the B on the 4th eighth note beat the first note of the second rhythmic figure should be a low E on the first ledger line below the staff. Errata: In measure 29, all the notes that are notated as an A are actually A-flat. Performance Guide: This etude uses several contrasting stylistic selections and offers players opportunities for interpretive decision-making throughout.
Of primary consideration for a performance of this etude that leads to advancement in the TMEA auditions, will be accuracy in rhythm and in time, as well as consistency in articulation and diction. Players should begin learning the music with very slow tempo using a metronome with subdivisions to ensure proper rhythmic placement and stylistic consistency. The opening pesante should be performed with a bold yet controlled forte dynamic based on a strong dotted-quarter note pulse. The three-notes in this rhythmic figure are each played quite differently, so careful attention should be given to learning how each note is played.
The first note of the figure dotted-eighth should be well-accented with sustain and breadth.

The third note of the figure eighth should be non-accented, lifted, and resonant not clipped. Emphasize the rhythm change by keeping the accent over the dotted-eighth note. The Con Moto in mm. Pay close attention to the articulations, but maintain a sustained sound throughout the phrase.
The eighth rest in m. Practice taking the breath by playing mm. The section in mm. Keep the volume low then follow the crescendo in mm.
