Chopi Nocturne Opus 9 Nr.2
« on: June 22, 2010, 01:17:59 PM »
I'm learning this piece but having some problems with the pedalling.  Page 1 and 3  of the Urtext copy shows all the pedalling in great detail.  However page 2 has no pedalling signs until the last bar.  Does this mean no pedalling.  It seems nigh on impossible to play smoothly without some pedalling.    Any one else out there had this problem?

It would mean pedal using the same patterns as suggested on page 1, or at the performers discretion. 

This piece needs pedal, and leaving it out for a whole page would sound odd.
Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach
