Jarkko’s practice diary

Hi all, I know that this Chopin  Ballade is well above my pay grade. But hey…, it’s one of my all time favorite pieces(!) That’s why I want to play it. Maybe some day I’ll get in a decent shape. Practice makes perfect…. I hope. 🙂

    • Jarkko Janhunen Beautiful phrasing!! The timing in the middle section development is tough but you pull it off with finesse and a warm tone. BRAVO 👏👏👏 Can’t wait to hear this in one of our concerts :)

    • Brother Will Green Many thanks! Yeah, there are plenty of difficult syncopations and tricky passages  in the middle section. I will need to sort those out and gain more confidence for the whole piece before I can consider a live performance.  Maybe some day?

  • I have been working on Finlandia🇫🇮 op 26/7 by Sibelius lately. The piece has lots of difficult killer jumps but it's very fun to play. I hope to master it some day. 🙂
