Week 15/97: Chopin Prelude Op 28 No 20

I hadn’t originally planned on starting a Chopin piece yet, but I started playing around with this piece and couldn’t stop. So, here we are…

The slight pause at the end of bar 8 is because I’m obsessed with getting some unacorda action into the last phrase of this piece…

I’ve figured out how to record directly to the laptop, bypassing the microphone and all of it’s noises. However, the audio from the program my webcam uses for recording is not as good as the audio from Audacity. Compare the video with this MP3. There is some kind of weird rolling sound underneath the music in the video. So I don’t know what the deal is with that, but I think it’s an improvement.

K545 still proves to be tres difficile. I am working on Cavatina instead. I didn’t think I was ready for this but it’s actually not so bad once you get into it. Arpeggios are harder than scales but 16th notes are more harder than 8th notes.

    Moonlight Sonata. Do it. You need practice on your ties and slurs, Beethoven can help!

    The left hand of the Revolutionary and right hand technique will take more than 2 years, sadly. I suggest trying some of the easier Rachmaninoff Etudes first, ask your teacher about this if you arent sure.
