I have no pedal marking in measure 48 of my edition of Chopin 48-1 (except for a short one for the rolled first chord).

I have found myself using the pedal in the remainder of that measure despite this, particularly for the accel at the end, where I hold the pedal for all 12 notes...!

I think it sounds better, as it "rolls down" into a low drone toward doppio movimento, however I wondered if this was standard or not, given the lack of markings.

Does anyone/everyone use pedal in that section?

I've been experimenting with various pedal moves, so still open to suggestions...if it helps pique anyone's interest here's a link to a recording of my last practice session. eek

The first half the piece is almost performance ready I believe. I'm still experimenting with voicing and rubato etc, but I think it is sounding quite nice?

...however, the second half is still not great...stutters, occasional missed notes in the jumps, and too loud a left hand mainly...but it's certainly getting there.

Feel free to comment or advise on any area, pedalling or otherwise smile

Seems like Souncloud took it down for copyright infringement! I've disputed, but may not be back up for a while (I'll correct it's title to 48-1 when I do!!!)

OK...I'll try that again...here is a video of a practice playthrough. Not my most expressive playthrough ever, but I'm closing in on this piece now I think...

Pedal should change when harmony changes. Flutter pedal is ok.
I am also woking on this piece w/ my teacher. Just watched your video - the rhythm is off- you are playing 3 sequential quarter notes as triplets. Its done in several spots in the first section, and last section. Also the rubato can be stretched more, the LH sounds too loud in the doppio movimento section which is why the voicing in RH is not coming across as properly voiced. That pinky in RH needs to sing.

Thanks for you feedback AX. Much appreciated, particularly since I don't have a teacher to point out my errors!

Regarding the rhythm issue...could you possibly be more specific? My guess is that it is the 3 semiquavers after the tied notes (e.g. measures 2, 4, 6, 7)....but I'm struggling to pinpoint it. Maybe the incorrect rhythm is just too ingrained for me to hear it! No problems if not though. I will spend some more time practicing with the metronome anyway...something I probably don't do enough. I only recently (last week) spotted that I am playing the 2 quavers in m7 much too quickly...

I'm still working hard on finessing the LH volumes...getting them consistent is particularly tricky in the doppio, what with all the leaps, but little by little it is improving...
