Well done for making this video.

I am not a teacher or graduate musician and indeed not much of a Chopin fan so I am afraid there is little I can say. I do have a book of the Chopin preludes however so I have just played through the piece a couple of times but I don't think for a number of reasons that I should comment.

I think it is difficult to comment on interpretations of piano music when viewed using computer media. For one thing I can't judge the dynamics. I did see your interpretation of the Mozart K545 and concluded that you had put in a lot of effort to learn it, probably much more than I did.

That one is okay, dynamics are appropriate. A nice and easy Chopin tune to start and have fun with. I have not looked at the score but if my memory serves, there should be a grace note (the lower a) before the final c#-a chords. Maybe I am mistaken, though...

You are correct! I purposely left it out because I liked the way it sounded without the grace note. Astute observation though

Sounds great! I really like Chopin, he's one of my favorite composers.
