So, the time has come … About 3 weeks ago I started to learn my first waltz …
It’s from chopin Op.69 No.2 … Here my reference video which was played by cubusdk:
According to google, this piece is grade 7, but at least grade 6. But according to Wiki it’s „technically not demanding“. So I don’t know exactly how difficult it is, but I think I’ll need a lot longer than grade 6 students 😉
Until now, I needed 3 weeks for memorizing about 3/4th of the piece and practicing, until I could record the first quarter as audio:
There are several weaks in timing, but I think the dynamic is not too bad …
So, the 2nd sheet is memorized but can’t be played in performance speed yet, and the 3rd sheet is the most demanding part.
I think it will take at least another 3 weeks to complete the piece … But it makes really fun and it is somehow brightly and full of energy 🙂
