Hi all! After an almost 15 year hiatus I have decided to resume learning Chopin's Etudes. Here are two that I recorded yesterday for an upcoming online lesson. Constructive feedback is always appreciated. Thanks!
The first etude comes out much better than the second one. It is great that you can still play those after such a long break.
Now the second etude lacks fluidity, it is quite chopped and uneven. Indeed you would need to take them at a much slower speed and work them out until you can manage it smoothly. At 1.30 you are really struggling ....
My sense is that you probably would want to do some separate exercices to really get up to level and play some easier pieces to warm up. But that looks quite promising. Good luck.
