Hi Joe,

First let me say, your technique is astounding. I played this piece and
understand how extremely flexible you are when you play. Congratulations.

I think some of the phrasing could have had a more fluent and complete line
of thought. However, this was still a totally amazing performance.

Thank you for sharing,
Kaila

Kaila,

Thanks very much for listening and your kind words (also on the polonaises). The more I play and come back to Chopin, the more I realize that every piece of his, even the smallest prelude, is "music for life" -- to be continually revisited but for which full mastery, both musically and technically, remains elusive. One problem I found in a piece as long as the Fantasy is that, given my limited practice time, I would work on the hardest passages for me over and over but then neglected some of the "easier" ones, which then had gotten rusty by the time I recorded it. But at least think I can say that my overall control over the Fantasy has transformed significantly since when I first performed it in my college days, so I'm glad you were convinced.

Thanks again,

Joe

Joe, I thoroughly enjoyed this performance of the Chopin Fantasy. I've also enjoyed the discussion going on here.
