The Music’s Secret Language

Ever wonder why a certain classical piece evokes a consistent emotional response? Scientist and musician Manfred Clynes has done extensive research on the topic and discovered that many of the great composers all had their own unique signature of underlying emotional “pulse” in their music. But he was not the first to explore the music’s secret language. Read more >>

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
