Chopin Prelude Op.28, No. 16 in B-Flat Minor

Postby PJF » 21 Sep 2007, 00:22

OK this is definitely NOT an easy one. I pulled this recording from an audiotape I made in 2002.
I'm close to making a current recording (which will be far and away better than this one)

A few flubs but pretty good, if I do say so myself. :lol:

BTW The opening chords were patched on from a 2007 recording of mine.

Thanks.
I wish it was note-perfect! :lol: The hardest parts technically are the LH octaves. Those 5-5 octave jumps are also pretty hair raising.

I like the tempo, too.

It's not so much about bravery as patience. The very first time I dared to try it was in 1996. The performance was terrible but it has gotten better,I hope! :lol:

This is really quite good! In my opinion, the opening could use a bit more strength. You need to surprise the public! Also, the whole thing, once ready, should be brought up to a higher speed. But it's sounding impressive so far! Keep at it.

By the way, you are right: it is probably the most difficult prelude. I've tried most of them, and this is the one I tend to shy away from... :P
