Hello,

So I got a piano and started taking lessons a couple months ago with the intention of playing mainly Classical. I was giben this Chopin piece to work on over the summer break. Was just wondering if any more experienced pianists could share their thoughts or suggestions on it.

Cheers,
Brett

What advice, specifically, are you looking for relating to this piece? Do you need technical advice? An analysis of the score? Recommended recordings? Tips for interpretation? Any specific areas in the piece you want help on?

I'm getting suspicious that this is another case of PADS, which seems to be spreading rapidly nowadays.

I have no idea. And yes, I was playing the last three chords an octave too high and I wasn't voicing the top note so that's probably why they sound off lol. I've had some help from my teacher with this piece and I'm not satisfied at all with this recording anymore. Maybe I will do an improved recording soon.

Regards!

Anyway, it looks like this wasn't really a case of PADS. All it was was the more mild PDDARS. grin
