Our next Chopin's DeathDay Recital will be October 17, 2009. We're doing nocturnes this time. We have three (now just two) orphans. Anyone interested? The two below are available.

15/3 claimed
32/2 Liszt Addict
62/1 claimed

15/3 is considered grade 7, the other two are grade 8.


Slow down and do it right.

Just curious, where do you get the grade information? 32/2 I played during my 5th year of music school (I was 11 years old), and I remember it was quite easy... 15/3 has a few cascading chords that I find way harder to play right (even now) than anything in 32/2. I wonder if I am missing something important here... Thanx.

BTW, I highly recommend 32/2, IMHO, it is one of 3 quintessential nocturnes (the other 2 being 9/1 and 9/2), the usual disclaimer (in my signature) applies laugh

Probably very imperfect, but handy.

FWIW, for the benefit of someone considering one of these ... 15/3 is generally considered the least technically demanding of all Chopin's nocturnes that were published during his lifetime.

But, as Yuri already said, YMMV.

I wonder if the so-called Nocturne Oubliée should be admissible, too, if anyone cares to play it.

I'd say it should be. At least one editor in Russia apparently thinks its His.

Frycek - is this Nocturne-arama still in effect?

Given the grade 7 (still a stretch, but not 8 at least!), this note above, and 9 months to go, I would consider taking on the 15/3, but if someone else chimes in, please let them have it. If you need me to step in, I'm sure I'll find the responsibility of participating to be highly motivating!

It's definitely still in effect, just dormant at the moment.

I'm sorry. This is a very old post. Unless something changes all the nocturnes are claimed already.

Yeah, I just saw it pop up again at the top of the forum yesterday and didn't see the dates on the original post until after I replied.

I'll just focus more on my mazurka!
