Chopin Ballade No. 1 in Gmin
« on: August 25, 2004, 04:03:22 AM »
I have started to learn this piece, and over time I want to be able to play the whole thing, but I would really appreciate any advice that you guys can offer as to how to tackle this song, particularly the part right before the first "Meno Mosso" and the last two pages. In general though I'd appreaciate any tips on playing it or practicing it. Thank you.

I've played it myself this summer. I saw "The Pianist", and I was caught by that piece. I had to play it. But it's no different than any other piece. The only tip on how to tackle the technical difficulties presented in this pieces is: Rehearse. If you're asking for something in particular, please be more specific. refer to bars and notes, that way I can answer.
