Only page 2.
Seems like a beautiful study but quite boring for some reasons.

So I have finished to memorize it.
Took me about 5 hours 30 maybe of hectic practice.
I recorded the practice session but inadvertantly erased it so nothing tremendous.
Now time to work all this and start something else simulteanously.

It's actually beautiful, boring cuz of I still have the feel this is an Etude before being a piece of music. Great still though.

It takes a lot of for to get it to be music because it essentially asks a pianist to conduct and fully embody a chorale being sung, but using its texture to both augment it and give it features unique to playing the piano.

This thread is devoid of any real "advice" for others who might want to study the Etude. Real advice requires taking bars of the sheet music and writing a discussion on the difficulties and challenges one might face and some kind of solution to solve it. Just videoing is going to do jack and telling us the hours you practice tells us absolutely nothing at all.

shifted the original purpose of the thread as i screwed up recording so its okay if the thread becomes useless, Im here to post for myself wether it is to help people or just post a random piano related message, in which case some people will just pick on title and start working their pieces more efficiently I believe!

 yet im going to be giving one or two general advice for those whod like to be playing the piece.
The piece is basically divided in a few parts (4) that one is to rehearse. wouldnt suggest to rehearse it haphazardly.

maybe it means he's playing it over and over again in a constant repeating loop lasting 4 hours? ::)
