I have been working on these waltzes, hoping to have them ready by Christmas. This challenge is a gift, an opportunity to share them with the group and to feel generally more accountable about practicing. Like Sindre, I will play the original version: though I found it very difficult to learn, I just love the physicality and BIGNESS of it. Besides, I was unaware of the existence of an alternative version. Yes - let the dancing begin!
Hi Dominic, I will like to know if you will make a live on how to play Bramhs. waltz like you did for Beethoven variations. I know that you like to let us discoverd how to play the pieces, and I understand that...but I like when you show us how you see the way to play ...I like the way you bring us to understand the sound, the expression in each piece.
I have a question about the number 1 waltz....I found the left hand strange to hear...is it normal ? I don't feel it...Is it a part of the challenge of that piece to pass by that feeling ? Do we have to put the tempo on the first note or on the second one?
And, the two last mesures of the first part...there is a X front of the C...what is that mean ? I have to play the C, 1/2 ton over ? Is it right ?
