Unfortunately, I had my Chopin evening class recital effort taped over (**#!** college IT department), so here's the only other recording of my efforts.
This is from BEFORE my evening classes started last year and although the poor sound quality helps hide a number of issues, you''ll spot some random and unnecessary pedaling, some suspect dynamics and a few wrong notes. Maybe a tempo change too. I'd play those grace notes differently now too, despite what Ronan O'Hora does on the ABRSM recording.
Technically, this is from the current Grade 7 list, but it would need a bit more work I think to reach that standard. For some reason, I decided to learn the longer and more tedious first part of the Sonata (just the Allegro, not in the exam syllabus) for this terms concert. I've memorised it, I can play it at 80bpm, but at concert speed, it's sounding rubbish. Not looking forward to playing that at the concert next week. Good trill practice though.Anyway, I digress.
If you know a 6 year old who can play this, that's great, but please don't tell me as us late starters can get a bit depressed about that sort of thing.
Let me know if the link doesn't work.
As you say, it does need to be faster but I think you'll cope!
