Haha I like that. You're not actually agreeing with me are you, if only to a certain level ?
Or are you simply resting your case ?
No, I´m not "resting my case" (I don´t really dare here to use such idiomatic english expressions, because I feel much too unsure with that
). Indeed, I mean, what I have written. I don´t agree completely with you, but only to a certain level (german: bis zu einem gewissen Grad).
Don't get lost in the Thomaskirche !
Yippee, I have not been lost in the Thomaskirche!
But I have brought many "treasures" from my field excursion. I think, I will make a thread in the general forum one nice day to let you participate all here a bit. And for you, Chris, I have a little private present, which will interest you, I´m sure.
I have played the Impromptu, op. 90, no.2, btw, for my pupils in Leipzig in the Mendelssohn-Museum, Goldschmidtstraße 12 in Leipzig on a super Bösendörfer grand-piano in the "salon-room", in which Mendelssohn himself played always for his guests and the guests themselves played there, too, of course. To these guests counted Clara and Robert Schumann, Friedrich Wieck, Wagner, Chopin and much more, of course. I also have played some Songs Without Words there. Concerning the Impromptu I have played the runs there a little bit slower and I think I have found a version now, which is good and better than my version here above.
Btw, I don´t think, the Impromptus count to the "difficult" pieces. They more are for the beginners than for the advanced players from the technical view. Musically you always can work on them, of course. I think, my speed in the runs in the version here above was just a little bit too high. (But I wanted that, of course.
