Hi Everyone,

I just found this interesting recording.  All of this variation from the standard published version is in Chopin's own hand.

Yeah, I also read a few things by Chopin's students. All of them would say that if a particular student was trouble with a section, or a piece, Chopin would deliberately modify it/add in stuff to make it his pieces even harder.

"If you are having trouble with ornaments, then youre getting a shitload of ornaments for this lesson buddy!"

Thanks for posting this - I've been playing this 'alternative' version for years (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2uqN4apKcjo), although mine has fewer notes!

I really liked how Joseph Smith played this - with great simplicity, and a very understated elegance and beauty.
