Well that takes some guts to submit this etude so soon after kjarschka's stunning performance. But I do not quite see the point of it. The fast version, while not even being up tempo, is in places merely an approximation of the truth, and the slow version is only marginally cleaner. Neither of them is fit for the site if I may be honest. I do appreciate your determination and hard work, but there is a long way to go here. I do wonder why you always seem to aim for the most difficult pieces...
so i have some guts...haaa. I always choose what you called "the hard pieces". For me, its not that hard---technically speaking. But intepretation is hard indeed. No one seems to get a better intepretation these days even the professionals..
With "easy" pieces---I lost motivation......
Well, I know Chiara, if you are comparing me against world class pianist, who does more work to it. Of course I am out. I thought this site gathering both amateur and "professionals".
There are some other world class pianist played much slower. 2.15 by female Turkish pianist, so as Australian pianist..2.12. So as Matha Goldstein(2.17) on the site.
My tempo mark achieved 85%-90% of presto.(please physically check with metronome
) I would said its more reasonable rather than what you called "The fast version, while not even being up tempo, is in places merely an approximation of the truth,".
Obviously your view is not quite as clean as I always think of"
I just want to see what feed back I get from people.
Thanks for your determination. I have found the truth of piano society. By the way. I listen again. I loved it....nothing wrong with my playing perhaps its your taste.
