Chopin Etude Opus 10 Number 7

This is from an impromptu recording session I had at home a couple of days ago. I appreciate all commentary!

BTW, my Tibetan Spaniel, Fugly ran into another room upon hearing it. He HATES this piece for some reason! (He likes the Polonaise Militaire) go figure...

Wow, that's pretty good sounding... atleast to me. I know I couldn't play that anytime very soon, especially because right now my money piece is a song by Mussorgsky.

A song by Mussorgsky? When can we hear it?

Umm, when I get the proper things for recording a song with, and when I find the book that I got it from to work over some rough spots, because it sounds too rough and not nice enough (the song is Impromptu Passione).

I strongly recommend the EDIROL R-09 WAV Recorder. It's well worth the $400.

I like Chopin's Etudes, they're very nice. My Piano teacher said he expects I'll be able to play one by my Junior year, or possibly sooner because, according to him, if I can play pieces from Debussy's "Children's Corner" with two years of playing, I should be able to play Chopin's Etudes relatively quickly.

Which ones, the Children's Corner or the Etudes?

Also, about the WAV recorder, I don't have a job or anything, how would I go about finding the $400 dollars to buy one? Christmas and my Birthday are very far away (almost a year away from today for Xmas, more than a year for my B-day).

Sounds good Pete- maybe a bit too slow?

Zeniyama- get a job (you can even offer to do jobs around the house for your parents for $$), sell your gaming system, set up a lemonade stand (ok maybe not)... there's ways to get $400 scratched together. :P

Nice recording indeed! The ending was a bit rough, but it's well on its way. Good work!

The Etudes. About finding $400, you could beg for it, rob a bank (do not attempt), plant a money tree, invest $10 in a no-load mutual fund and wait a few decades...the lemonade stand sounds pretty good now, eh? All stupid comments aside, summer's coming up, how about a job? They're not as bad as you think.

BTW, how can it be more than a year to your birthday??? Were you born on Mars?

You're the first person to realize how rough the ending was! Thanks. :lol:

Elf, LOL too slow. I think I'll speed it up after I learn all the other etudes.

Because I was born on February 29th on a leap year...

But seriously, I was extremely (and I mean extremely) tired when writing that, and misjudged the amount of time because I couldn't focus.

Also, I've been thinking about getting a job, but I don't know what to get. I want a job that requires no real thinking, and where I don't have to be around alot of people, but don't know what type of job is like that.

HAHA, I'm just bustin' your chops, I know what you mean.

A good thing to do is start asking your adult peers "I want a job; can you help me find one?" They will probably be helpful and maybe even impressed.

Good luck!

But we digress....(OT)

Sorry for the tangent, PS!

About the etude 10/7, this has to be one of the more difficult etudes to play properly. IMO, it's far harder than the 10/1. I even find the 25/11 a bit easier. It is technically unrelenting and demands PERFECT coordination of the entire body. For anyone trying to play it I give one suggestion; start the motions from the torso.

Abby Whiteside hit the bullseye about how to solve the technical quandaries of the 10/7 in her manuscript "Mastering the Chopin Etudes..."

It's a must-read for anyone working through the chopets.
