    Thank you so much for introducing Chopin op.50. to us.

    I really appreciate your teaching for 2 weeks.

    I want to try Chopin Mazurka op 50  through recording. 

     

    On 0p.50, no.1 m.5, 10,18.., Chopin uses pedal with the right hand rest signs.

     Usually it is not really working if we use pedal and rest signs together. I wonder if Chopin has any purpose for it or not.

     

    I wonder if Chopin' s rubato has any rules ,restrictions or characteristics compare to other composers if there are any unique things. I means he has lots rubatos compare to other composers. I want to know how to decide specific areas which we should play with rubato or not in Chopin music. Ex. Any hint or guidelines. Some pianists  played with too much emotions and others not. I wonder what's the better or ideal ways to play Chopin. Seems to me, he is very unique composer. 

    Please introduce your favorite pianists, videos, books to know better about Chopin or any general piano music and techniques.

    Appreciate it.

      If you would like to play a piece live for Jarred in order to receive feedback from him, then post in this thread what you would like to play and Dominic will let you know a couple days in advance if your piece is chosen for this masterclass.

  • I’m not comfortable playing for others just yet, but I’m looking forward to watching.  I just finished the two-week intensive with Jarred and I’ve been left wanting more.  So glad we have this opportunity.

  • Hello Jarred, 

    I am doing both Nocturnes op.27 c# and Db. I am on the latter right now. There are more  details per bar than I noticed before, such as a  staccatissimo dotted at the end of a lot of phrases(bar12-17)  (I have the National Polish EDITION

     ed: Jan Ekier. How do you do 5 vs 4 bar16?

    Bar 32 the Leggierissimo broken chord span.. while this is a popular and sweet sounding piece , it is full of hazards even for an advance amateur to give it justice. I would very much like your input. Thank you.  Priscilla.

    • Jarred Dunn No, I do not intend to play in the masterclass. However, I did recorded myself to check, just using iPhone voice memo, not a video,  made a big mistake at the very end - right hand slipped!  I'll attached it here in case you have time to comment or demonstrate if time allows.

    Hello Jarred, I've been working on Op. 9, No 1. I'd like to get some feedback on this. In particular, I struggle keeping bb 16-17 even and keeping the left-hand arpeggios beginning in bar 59 flowing and smooth.
