Usually I notice quite soon which one seems to come into my fingers more naturally and which one presents more problems. It depends on your own personal strengths and weaknesses. Also if you have a musical preference it will make learning easyer.

October 29, 2017, 9:34 AM · Which do you like better? Prokofiev is tech less demanding, but if you really prefer Sibelius, working on it might be more rewarding.
