Here is a recording from me playing the first solo of this movement.

I will post a video from the entire movement soon.
Tell me what you think !

Good job! I love this concerto. Believe it or not, this is actually the 2nd piano concerto chopin wrote in his lifetime. He wrote the F Minor PC at age 19 but it wasn't until later that it was named No.2

Sorry if you already knew this. I just found it interesting.

Very nice job!

It's interesting to hear the piano concerto only with the piano. Is there a second pianist accompanying you in this recording? I assume not, but I'm not sure. If not, are you going to find someone who will? Will you get to play with an orchestra? Even if you don't, it must have still been very rewarding learning this piece.

Right, it had something to do with how they were published. Chopin wrote a piano concerto, but didn't think it was good enough to be published, so he just kept it in his notebooks. About 10 years later, he got around to writing another concerto, and this one he published and performed - to great success. Then seeing the great success of his "Piano Concerto No. 1", he fixed up his old concerto that he had written ten years earlier, and published that one as the "Piano Concerto No. 2."
