This is from the larghetto of Chopin's op 11 concerto. I hope one or several of you can explain to me (in a manner comprehensible to a complete idiot - moi )exactly how that trill is to be executed. Thanks!

Slow down and do it right.

I think you just trill the top note.

Ditto. Let go of the bottom note to play the trill. Also, if you can't make the trill last the full time value for whatever reason, two wiggles will suffice.

Thanks. I've been playing this piece for years. Suddenly just got to wondering. Glad to know I've been doing it correctly.
Slow down and do it right.
