I am currently working on Chopin's Scherzo no. 1 in B minor, and if anyone has good advice on playing it, please leave me a message.  Thanks!

This piece is not friendly at all for small hands.
Otherwise my No.1 key to mastering the running passages is . . .  slow practice!!

Key No.2: devise your own fingerings (that only you know are most convenient for your hands), write them down, and stick to them.

Have fun on your practice! :)
