mabuhay!

i am studied that piece too! also black key and scherzo 1, 2, beethoven sonata pathetique, gnomenreigen. i am 19 years old. i study piano since 8 years old. i think Revolutionary Etude is nice.

sorry on my english. i'm not good. i live in philippines. i came from province and move to the city, manila. i am still learning english. english very good language!

i hear Chopin always in concert in Luneta park. old pianists play there. they play beethoven sonatas and chopin. but i not heard of revolutionary in concert. i duno why.

Richter wraps it up in around 1:50

Generally when you go under 2:20 the notes start slipping away.

Actually a 1:30 performance is perfectly concievable with 100% accuracy.
