I'm bringing back the first scherzo, spending 1-2 hours a day with it, getting it ready for a performance in a couple days. If I ever start to feel a little tired of it, I just have to play it slowly, and listen. It's wondrous and beautiful down to its very core. Every measure. The trick is to not lose sight of that in the seething fury.

I don't know... I guess I've just really steered away from early Chopin. Not to say that scherzo 2 is early or anything, but its form just doesn't seem as masterful as the last two. By the time he wrote the third scherzo his form was ratcheting up another notch. IMO...
