Wow finally a piece of Chopin that I like smile! This one seems to contain real honest emotions and feeling. I might need to listen to other works of Chopin, I might appreciate him after al.


Currently working on: Perfecting the Op 2/1, studying the 27/2 last movement. Chopin Nocturne 32/2 and Posth. C#m, 'Raindrop' prelude and Etude 10/9
Repetoire: Beethoven op 2/1, 10/1(1st, 2nd), 13, 14/1, 27/1(1st, 2nd), 27/2, 28(1st, 2nd), 31/2(1st, 3rd), 49/1, 49/2, 78(1st), 79, 90, 101(1st)

I second the motion to see your playing from the side. The arms don't seem tense, but seeing the fingers would really tell all.

Also, do you feel tense, or do you have any burning sensation or fatigue when doing your octaves? If not, then you have nothing to worry about.

I tried playing that etude once and I didn't feel any tension or tired at all... but then I noticed my arms had fallen off.
