A live recording of Chopin's study in f minor opus 10 nr. 9.

It takes a lot of stretching for the left hand but I've got quite big hands so that's not really a problem.

The recording itself contains a bit distortion, but is still enjoyable.

Another Chopin étude (nouvelle etude in f minor) which I played at the same performance can be found here: http://www.pianostreet.com/smf/index.php/topic,11721.0.html.

Sounds good, but not too sure if you were playin rubato or playin in 4/4 at starting...If it's rubato I would cut down a bit..

You're right. I start rubato, holding the the first low f too long. I did't take piano lessons since 1992 until only one year ago. My teacher pointed me a the same thing: start immediately in the right tempo and keep it steady. There's still a lot to improve.

It still sounds great though, you should feel good about learning this without having lessons in so long..

that is a good recording. What fingering did you use in the LH? My friend is learning it and is currently using 5-4, but not sure what it is suppose to be.

I like the 3rd finger to pivot on, so left hand mostly 531313. Sometimes with 2 and only a few times 4.

Get a good edition with fingering.

Watch out for accents that don't fit in the melody line in the right hand. You often have accents on the last note of a phrase, which will make many pianists quite angry lol.

And indeed, you hold the f in the left hand to long.

However, your dynamics were great Smiley .

Thanks, Kassaa you are right about the accents. My teacher also points on the importance of accents and phrasing.

Not to excuse myself, but this was recorded only 6 months after I started piano lessons again (after about 13 years "self-study"). But I am eager to learn.

Well, it would be fantastic if you would post a recording when you have worked on the accents and phrasing Smiley .
 
I'm really curious, because this recording was quite good already Smiley .

creo que este es el estudio más fácil de Chopin, no es difícil de memorizar y la única verdadera dificultad es la mano izquierda que le exige mucho al dedo 4, creo que este estudio es mejor para empezar a ver los estudios de Chopin que el Op.10  No.6

Your rubato doesnt make much sense really. Try to play with the melody and keep the left hand as a steady background and post it again  Wink

Oh, and have a better look at those notes at the measure before that last F
