My mind was expecting op. 15 no. 1 which made this relaxing video rather jarring. My advice is pedal louder, stomp if you have to. p.s. Beautiful fingers.

Some food for thought from Matthew Bengtson's article (thanks Mark): Quote: Both visions of the work are possible—the playful diversion by Beethoven to put an upstart composer in his proper place, as a publisher of other people’s music, or the

Such wide chords happen a lot in late romantic composers, etc. Skriabin had rather small hands and wrote tons of such things without waved marks or similar signs. So if the composer himself can't physically play his piece as written, the pianist is c

That piece is really simple. It's just a melody with some chord accompaniment. I think it could be done much earlier than 2 years, but it all depends of course.

I wonder if the action was rebuilt and regulated to be a bit more stout (probably a bad descriptive term) because it's a public instrument and will be played a lot and possibly abused? When I was a student at Westminster Choir College, the main recit
