Do you think Beethoven is harder than Chopin?
« on: February 10, 2014, 06:14:17 PM »
Facts:  Beethoven sonata op 100s are all nearly impossible unless your technique is very great, his appassionata i think tops even chopin's hardest piece.  Waldestein....i could go on....

Chopin's hardest piece would be one of his sonatas, which is equal to beethoven Op. 7 which is no where near his hardest.

Thoughts?

I don't know about harder, but for me Beethoven is a lot more interesting than Chopin.
