Hi guys I just got my first piano home last week. I learnt piano during first year of college (the dorm has piano room) due to interest in Chopin's work. Played around a year then gave up for the next 10 years.
Now I got my own piano I can play everyday isn't that wonderful?
Loc: New York City
Sounds great for a work in progress.
I think you need to work on your evenness a little bit. Yes, rubato is acceptable in Chopin, but only to a certain extent, and this may be an example of overuse. Try to coordinate your hands a little better (ie playing the melody in sync with the left hand notes/chords) and have the tempo be more steady. Not metronomically of course.
I do not mind at all, in fact, shares for sharing, Larry
Polyphonist, thanks for the suggestion. I agree with everything you suggested, this is one of the easiest piece by Chopin, though one of my favorite - my poor technical capability still cannot keep up. rubato wise, i like over dosed mazurka
4everbeginer, the piano is lucky to have a master like me - who only listen and plays chopin
weiyan, thanks for the comments
jrcallan, good luck with it. i noticed there are several different versions of this piece.
