I am studying Chopin's Waltz in c sharp minor. I am being troubled by the appoggiaturas found throughout the piece as highlighted in the JPG here: http://i.imgur.com/ttQLCmQ.jpg
In seemingly all of the performances of this piece that I come across, the performer brings to these measures more of a "rolling" sound than what I have been able to produce while playing ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wTSu1jjKpgI
). Unfortunately I do not have a soundbyte of myself at the moment.
My question is whether my technical understanding of how these measures (right-hand) are meant to be played is correct.
From my studies, the appoggiatura should be played on the beat taking half of the time value from the note it is tied to and played with the same prominence as the main note. Based upon this, my understanding is that in the first instance of the appoggiatura it should be played:
1 - Rest
e - Rest
& - F# & G#
a - held
2 - B & F#
e - A & F# (held from previous)
& - Rest
a - F# & G
3 - F# & D#
e - held
& - held
a - held
Effectively turning the appoggiatura and the note it is tied to each into sixteenth notes. Am I correct?
