Hi everybody,

I have started to learn Chopin's Waltz Op. 64, No. 2 in C# Minor.
I have two questions:

1- Beside the sheet music, as a reference, I've also chosen to take lessons from this performance, which I found pretty good:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e9k5jOZ3_w0

How do you rate this pianist? Can I consider it as an authentic reference?


2- I can play Erik Satie's Gnossienne 1~3 pretty well (got acclaim from a couple of pianists), but I found this piece much more difficult. Is it really way more difficult than Gnossiennes? Or maybe it just needs practice?


By the way, I have been playing piano for about 5 years.


I appreciate your help.

Thanks a lot,
Mike

Probably you will get more and better responses in one of the other forums. This forum is specifically for discussion about digital pianos and synths.

Sorry I did not notice the forum. Thanks.
I re-posted it in another forum. It seems I can't delete the post here.
