Hi to everyone! Playing etudes is not the biggest hobby of mine, but with this very etude I call back the time of my studies and let that also be a tiny alternation (but not the best :cry: ) amongst my other recordings.

Chopin Etude C minor op. 25 no 12

This was a nice alternation, yes. A bit messy, but that's the crux of the Chopin Etudes.

Good job, Leonald. I love the feel and sound of this one.
(Too bad I can't play it.)

This may be not absolutely spit-polish perfect, but it's certainly not messy (PJF :!: ) . It's a powerful and sweeping performance, and in my opinion really catches the desolate essence of the piece.

I believe your heart goes out more to lyrical than virtuoso pieces, but this is very persuasive nonetheless. I'll put it up the site straight away !

Thanks for your comments, indeed. This is definitely not one of my strongest performances: this etude needs to be practiced a lot more. Let us put it up onto a site when I have been performing it noticably better...

Actually, I had already put it up the site....
It is perfectly fine, and you'd always want to do it better anyway.

A rather good performance and you are aware on your weak spots. A little bit more flow and also a bit faster would make it near perfect. I would not focus on beeing to note perfect as with better flow, noone (perhaps you Chris) will hear a coupe of missed notes here and there. Just make sure you get the keys playing the melody right.
