Why try to emulate pianists who are gifted with easy learning capacities? Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli had a great career based on only a few works, which he played again and again in concert. Richter might have learnt a lot of music but he played

piano_primo_1, it's not a matter of "duration", and you shouldn't be worried about that in particular. You may present what makes sense for you, and that means being faithful to the score OR playing your version. Anyway, go for it!

Let's be careful our terminology. Reading is knowing what the dots and lines mean in pitch and rhythm and using those skills to learn or play a piece already learned but not yet memorized. Sight reading is playing a piece from sheets, hands toge
