With all due respect, it seems like you're still struggling a bit with the finer parts of the piece.
Especially about 35 seconds in through the end, the LH melody is barely audible.
You've got the notes down; now it's just time to bring everything together!

lol brian ;D

@Harrison interesting. I did play everything intentionally, I'm not entirely sure what you mean by "Struggling" with the parts of the piece. Can you give some more places where you disagree with my interpretation? I appreciate the feedback :)

Overall a great performance ;D
My only suggestion is to to play the R.H softer at some parts and make the L.H audible at measures 43-the end.
Beethoven Op 2/2
Chopin Op 20, maybe op 47/38
Debussy Etude 7
Grieg Op 16
Want to do:
Chopin Concerti 1 and 2
Beethoven Waldstein
Ravel Miroirs

Wonderful Pencil! Did you work on it with your teacher or on your own?

Can I ask if this is multiple takes stitched together???

That or one (possibly) perfect audio recording, but multiple video takes?

Lovely playing, but you should work on your camera angles :)

Did I miss something? Did you already record nr 1? That is my favorite on this set and should be posted here asap  ::)

Outin, why don't you attempt it yourself? It is totally doable.

Saddleback, you are just being generic here. So difficult to find something new to nitpick, isn't it? hahaha :P

I've broken up with Fred and not playing anything of his. Not saying ever again, but at least not for the time being.

My relationship with him has been a bit rocky as well... It seems I can only get somewhere with the Russian guys...
