It's not just "wanting" to be alone - it's "needing" to be alone at certain times in our lives - and it has nothing to do with liking or not liking humanity. By nature, I'm an introvert but I can also be very social and "out there." Go figure. crazy Real "connections" with other human beings in this world are rare - but they do happen. We simply need to be open to the possibility.

Yes indeed!
If you listen to even more, you'll find that almost everybody skips it. grin

And with good reason. I love every measure and every note of that exposition -- with a passion smile -- but I think taking the repeat half-ruins the piece. I'm with those who think that despite Chopin's having written separate 1st- and 2nd- endings, it was a formality, and he didn't particularly intend the repeat to be taken.

(Before anybody takes the trouble to do a post stating that this is just speculation..... ha

I just performed this a few hours ago - a few sloppy moments, so maybe I'll pass on uploading another recording for now...

In the meantime, I'd like to thank everybody who get thoughtful comments to my practice recordings, and I will continue to keep working on this piece. Thanks again!

I hope you can edit or delete the above post, hopefully delete. Even when someone messed up, it's not a great idea to say anything like that.

You're a fine pianist. The sonatas are (except for no.1 maybe, that might be a little less cumbersome) some of the most challenging pieces Chopin wrote and you did a really good job here.

If this is a practice recording then how do your polished ones sound like? :P

Anyhow, what's up with the other 3 movements? Would enjoy hearing the entire piece from you.

Thank you very much! I'm currently preparing for a competition in about a month and a half, where I'll be performing the first movement. I made another practice recording yesterday and you can find it here:

https://app.box.com/s/muayac92uc13k14hftmf

Of course this isn't a polished recording at all, and there are a few memory slips here and there. Which is why I'm not making a new thread....yet. :P

Oh and op 81a is a great piece! Really fun to play, but pretty challenging (especially the last movement..and the second movement is quite tricky as well).
