Thanks for that. I found it, though not a facsimile. There are no pedal markings.

I am not normally a big fan of YouTube, but what an experience I just had. Spent the last hour listening to Joseph Hoffman play. Some Rach, some Beethoven and an absolutely perfect 48.1. Never, ever heard it played so beautifully. His was a tragic story, as so many of them aren't.

Wow, after maybe 4 months on and off, I played Opus 27 no1 all the way through. Two sticking points- you know the ones.... Maybe I will get it done by Xmas! It's my 'challenge piece' but I love it and won't give up!

Happy not-Chopin's-birthday!

27/1 has plenty of sticking points if you ask me... good luck!

I have a question about Op 10 No 3. I cannot play it, but it is in the same book as the prelude I am working on so looked at it. In this etude does the right hand actually also play the top part of the bass clef line? I assume that is what the Etude does, teaches you to play melody and accompaniment with one hand and in this case melody on the weaker fingers. I searched for an answer but didn't really find one. Am I correct?

And today was his name-day. I don't remember how to wish someone a happy name-day in Polish.

I don't speak Polish, but I tried Google Translation...
PW doesn't seem to accept those Polish characters, but you can try Google yourself and confirm (or not)... smile

Ah, here we are, in Yahoo Answers. But this is strange-- it used to be quite possible to write proper Polish or other languages with various diacritical marks here, and now, as CA said, they don't come out. At any rate, the suggestions were like this:


Wszystkiego najlepszego z okazji imienin!

or

Szczesliwy dzien imie!

or if you have lots of good wishes, one person suggested


Z okazji twoich imienin skladam najlepsze zyczenia: badz zawsze zdrowy, ciesz sie zyciem i bliskimi, niech ludzie sie do ciebie usmiechaja, i szczescie i los ci zawsze sluzy.


So here's wishing Fryderyk and all of you happiness, smiles and luck today. (Health is a less appropriate wish for him.) He doesn't live in linear time anyway so perhaps he will forgive me for being a day late.

Here is a fun page all about name-days and how to find yours. I don't care for St. Helen so I ignore mine.

Greetings fellow Chopin fans!
Imagine my astonishment when I discovered the existence of a manga about Chopin and Liszt, featuring bishonen depictions of Romantic composers. I haven't laughed/cringed this hard in a while. Here are some pages:

Schumann
Mendelssohn
Oh, Japan.

The drawing is beautiful, but even though they're in manga form, couldn't the characters look a bit more like the real composers? Maybe in the hair styles at least? Anyway, I'll look forward to seeing more.

***********************************************

OK, just looked at more. cringe cringe cringe

For the record, as I expect most of us know, Chopin and Liszt did NOT have a stormy romance, or any kind of romance whatsoever!

Isn't it ridiculous? Their representation of Mozart almost killed me:
