What's the most technically challenging piece in your repertoire?

Currently working on it. It's not terrible. The call and answer before the B section took a while for me to feel comfortable with, as it's a little awkwardly written in my opinion. Other than that, I've found it pretty straightforward if one has any experience with tightly written passagework figures.

It's about as difficult as Rach's Op. 23 No. 7. Definitely easier than, say, the Revelutionary Etude which it recalls.

Mike - Definitely easier than the Chopin Opus 10 No. 12? That certainly hasn't been my own experience. frown

May I request sound samples? I love the moments musicaux, and Nos. 4 and 5 are my favourites. Since 4 if far beyond my abilities at this stage, I need to live vicariously through others!

I just find one repetitive figure that simply needs to be ripped downward a far easier issue to deal with than the figure built on passage work turnarounds in the Revelutionary. It really just boils down to what one finds easier.

The final variant in the Rach feels very comfortable to me thus far despite the coordination issues of having the first theme appear in chords within busy writing. Generally I find that one either has this sort of "hand independence" coordination down, or they don't. So, that in my mind is one of the deciding factors in whether one can learn the piece. If one can get past that, I find it easier.
