(I tried to embed the video in this thread, but for some reason it didn't work.)



Anyways, this is the first recording I've made that I've actually put on YouTube. I decided it was time for some honest feedback from people that didn't pay to see me play :)

The last chord is cut off, since the camera's memory ran out about 5 seconds before the piece ended :) Hope you don't mind!

Please enjoy, and post honest review/criticism here! :)

I gave up on piano on Grade 5, I just did not have the passion for it.

It is nice to see you have the ardor for it.

Oh and btw - :) Twas touching.

Thank you guys, you are too kind :) :) It makes a musician truly happy to hear his/her work praised thus!

When I was in Grade 5, I thought piano was one of the most boring things in the world... :) I simply wasn't mature enough to see and appreciate how beautiful and meaningful it is. I'm glad I got over that stage; now I would gladly die for piano. But it's true. You absolutely cannot become a good artist without passion. As the quote in my profile goes... "The artist must possess the courageous soul... The soul that dares and defies." Ironically enough, the author of that book is called Kate Chopin!

My first CD, huh... well, there's something to look forwards to. Probably will be a couple of years though :)

zorba, you're making me want to re-record it. Those two cut-off notes at the end are bugging me, and anyone who can appreciate my music that much deserves better :)

Look out, guys! I might have a few more pieces coming your way in a few days, including the absolutely enchanting Ballade No. 1! (I need to wait until both my parents are out of the house... otherwise, I'd be accused of wasting my time, and even if I weren't there would be background noise of epic proportions and it wouldn't be nice. The time will come. :))

Great job Chopin, I really liked it. Like Zorba, I'll also buy a CD if you release one. Just remember to tell us. :)

I finished writing up my analyses of the Chopin Etudes Op. 10 and 25, and the webmaster got around to putting up the Etudes Op. 25 (but not Op. 10) on his website. Here they are: http://ourchopin.com...is/etude25.html

Whoa! Looks highly technical and specialised. It's way over my head, but it looks very professional! I'll just listen and enjoy it. :)
