Chopin Op 10 No 8
on: January 02, 2021, 02:21:31 AM
This is a piece I learnt in the last week of 2020. It's the "Sunshine" Chopin etude and fills me with so much joy. Hope you enjoy it.

Made a Liszt. Need new Handel's for Soler panel & Alkan foil. Will Faure Stein on the way to pick up Mendels' sohn. Josquin get Wolfgangs Schu with Clara. Gone Chopin, I'll be Bach

Thanks! I'd been planning on learning it for several months and had listened to it on and off in the meantime which greatly helped the learning process. I hope you enjoyed it!

Very impressive. I think you nailed the character of the Etude. The only thing that bothers me is that you play the last chords kind of softly, while Chopin marks them FF in the score (I checked my Urtext just to be sure). I think they have to be played in a more strong, firm manner, like a final, solidifying statement.

Thanks for the comments! Yes the ff at the end is indeed something I overlooked, thanks for pointing it out.

Fine finger work and fluidity! I should go for more crescendo at the top of the figurations. Also a bit more energy in the bass notes in order to get a richer sound spectrum.
