I'm submitting what I have got. If I can get something better before the deadline, great, but I'm not going to have much free time so I'm not expecting much (especially with Op 68 no 39).

First of all thank you. Yes, I agree that this work is fabulous! On your comment on bars 73 through 102, I'm not sure I agree. It sure is another idea, but even with the "a tempo" there's simply so many fermatas that the tempo is conside

Sometimes when I read the arguments on this forum it feels like composers are some kind of Pokemon or game cards to some people. Guys, this is great music written by extraordinary composers. There isn't (and shouldn't be!) one definite superior genre

OP, finger strength is a process that takes years to consolidate and the older you are, the longer it takes ( and I mean older than 14 years old when your body is already settling down and you aren't growing like a mushroom anymore ). A teacher that

Thank you very much, Phillip! I have my N1 for more than 2 years and forgot about the "light" option for velocity. You play fantastically Rachmaninov! What was on youtube, I heard all performed by yours and it made my day full with joy!

Personally I think you're at the start of a great hunt, with a decent budget! One thing that you could do which would be fun is to go to the major dealers in a large city (there are 3 in the Phoenix area, Steinway, Yamaha, and Kawai/Schimmel) and as
