This certainly IS a very dramatic and beautiful piece. I'm very tempted to learn it myself. Actually, anyone can.
I realize that some people do better than others at this but if you just repeat this entire piece over and over your mind will eventually remember the entire piece. Even if you just play the piece on your speakers numerous times per day. You will eventually remember the piece to the point you know exactly what comes next.
"Eventually" can be from several playings to dozens. Whatever it takes to get it mentally memorized.
One you have that part down, simply sit down at your piano and plunk it out. Get through the entire piece just so you know you can actually do it. No matter how long it takes.
Of course your going to hit a ridiculous amount of wrong notes but it doesn't matter. Just get through the entire piece that is in your mind and match it note by note s-l-o-w-l-y until you get all the correct notes.
From this point all further renditions will only improve due to repetition and familiarizing yourself with the correct notes.
After a few weeks go by, you will find yourself playing this piece much more as it should. Hitting mostly the correct notes and even playing at near correct speed.
Continue to play this piece every day several times and you will not only find yourself playing the piece in correct time and hitting the correct notes, but you will also be able to put a little emotion and dynamics into the piece as well since you are gaining confidence in your abilities.
At the month to month and a half point, you will be playing this piece beautifully and wondering why you haven't been doing this sooner!
I'm not only convinced you could do that but I'd also bet you could perform an even nicer version of the performance you attached.
I'm sorry I don't know this piece either but I can easily hear the beauty in it.
You know I wouldn't say that if I didn't mean it!
If need be, I could learn this piece in a few sections and then play it on my Roland KR-7 digital in the 'transpose' mode. Somehow, it is supposed to be able to print out the sheet music from what you just played. Although it can 'somehow' do that, I may be missing a few steps. I think it involves the "midi" function to do it but I'm not sure since I've never done it. Good excuse to learn though huh?
