Does anyone know where I can listen to a decent mp3 of the Chopin, Nocturne, Op.55, No.1 on the internet? I have only found one, and it is by an unknown pianist whose interpretation I don't trust. I'm considering learning it if I can. I would particularly like to hear the tempo and dynamics of the "piu mosso" and the "molto legato e stretto" sections just to get an idea of how they are usually interpreted. I've heard this piece before, but I can't remember it well. I don't trust myself without any guidance.

C'mon, you don't trust yourself? Though listening to other pianists' recordings is very useful, I think you have more than enough experience to put your own ideas into your playing!

Btw, I'll give you my feedback on your Beethoven, as soon as possible.

Thanks, Casper and Chaotica. I'll check out those sites.

Chaotica, the truth is I don't have a lot of confidence in my interpretation of works that have gradual tempo changes, accelerando, meno mosso, etc...I guess that includes most music. LOL. There are so many members who know a lot more about Chopin than I. So I'd be more comfortable hearing couple versions before I post my own ideas. That's my substitute for a teacher.

If I was you, I would rather buy a CD. Perhaps Daniel Barenboim?
They are not really expensive.
