You obviously do not know me, but I can tell you that I do all right as far as "expressing myself". (some would say too much sometimes). Currently, I play the same music I have been playing for a long time, kind of re-learning everything. (go to my list of recordings to see examples) But I'm also getting into music that I've never played before, and I wish to expand my horizons. I'm the one who asked my teacher about Rach's music and now we are trying to decide where to start.
you'll love the Op.33-3 and Op.39-2
I just listened to the Op. 33 recordings we have here on the site. Chris, I think you are right that I may like no. 3. It is gorgeous. Yes, I can see myself playing that one, and you get to use all those very low keys
. I also love the sound of 2 but that long trill scares me. Nice job on the ending, btw. I liked the no. 8 a lot, too. Not sure I can play the fast middle part with the runs, though. I'll look at it when my book arrives.
