Yep, another Chopin thread!

LisztAddict, Frycek, this is the thread you requested.

I want to take this opportunity to welcome both Balakirev and Amelialw.

Balakirev is new to PianoWorld. A warm "welcome" to you!

Amelialw is an extremely accomplished pianist with professional ambitions. It is an honor to have you join us!

I'll give 25.2 a try - but not making any promises. One full year, right?

My apologies, and also apologies for the typo.

Your avatar said Junior Member; I didn't bother to check your sign-up date...

At any rate, you are on for 10.2 a year from now.

I might tackle 10/6

I'll withdraw within a week if I start and changed my mind.

Good Luck to All of You! I think it is a lofty and ambitious goal, and I know Chopin will be "looking over your shoulder," if you let him.

Remember his quote:
Practice is the best teacher...
Time is the best critic.... \:\)

My best,
Kathleen

Wow. This was posted really quickly.

I'm torn between op.25 nos 3 5 10 and 11.

Anybody want to offer any input that will help me choose?

All I know is that Op 25 nr 11 (Winter Wind) is considered extremely difficult. I had a bit of a go at it a couple of weeks ago, just checking it out. I backed away in awe. I wasn't nearly ready to approach it and won't be for quite awhile.

I think I might try out Op.10 number 1. I've played through it a couple times. It's going to take ALOT of work though.

This is a great idea!

I'm really having trouble here. I'd be good at 25/10, but I'd love the challenge of no.11.

I probably would have gone with 25.12 if YD hadn't taken it. C minor is my favourite key. I've also read through the first couple of bars. Good stuff.

Why not begin them both and give 25/11 some intensive effort, see where you get and then make up your mind.

I'm not thatgood, but I'll give it a try. I do have access to the Cortot editions, I've heard they're pretty good.

Wow,10/1 is definitely the most challenging of them all as far as I am concerned; you are probably among very few on this forum who could pull this off.

playadom: sorry for snapping the 25/12 from you; you see, C minor is my favorite key too. I may take a stab at Winter Wind too; maybe one of us could pull it off (it's a whole year, after all). I played through the first page or so; it is definitely a challenge, but less so than 10/1 - there my right hand hurts just from looking at it :-)

YD: We seem to have similar musical tastes. Interesting...

I'd probably benefit a lot more from 25/11 because I'm already really good with octaves.

I do have a year after all..

Playadom, why don't you give it a week or two following Frycek's suggestion (play with both), and we'll "reserve" 25/11 for you for that time? Sans a flood of interest from Pianist's Corner, I don't see anyone clamoring to play it anyway.

Debussy20: 10/1 added to your queue.

Shoot, we've almost got half of these beasties assigned!

Let's approach this with great humility and determination. For many of us this will be a real test - test of ability to learn how to acquire technique, and test of our perseverance.

Theowne, I agree with you, strongly. 10/3, Ave Maria, 10/3, Ave Maria. It's that beautiful.

YD: I have always hated scales and loved arps! I started this a little while ago and I've about got the first 1/5 up to speed and memorized. The rest needs some work... \:D Getting everything even and up to speed may be a challenge!
