Chopin Waltzes and John Field Nocturnes!

Today I bought John Field Nocturnes(Peters Edition) and Chopin Waltzes(ABRSM Edition) with the money I had over Christmas. Chopin would have to be one of my favorie composers as he was the inventor of the piano nocturne. I haven’t even started to practice a piece from the Field Nocturnes book as I like the Waltzes much more. So I started on Chopin Waltz No.10 in B Minor Op.69 No.2 and all is going very well! I have it all down and playing (very slowly!) hands together and to my surprise I’m delighted with the results. All I have to do for the next few days is to continue to practice this piece and add in the usual dynamics and try to speed up the tempo. After I complete this Waltz I will start on Minute Waltz as it is my favorite.

Performances of the completed Waltz(es) will be uploaded here and to my YouTube channel(ClassicalMusicPiano) as always so check the channel and this blog from time to time to see new uploads. If anyone has any advice of what Waltz to play next or how to approach/practice this above nocturne please comment below. Hope this interests you as much as it interests me! Thanks for viewing! See you all soon.

Happy Christmas!

Merry Christmas everyone! I just wanted to shout that out to everybody who keeps up to date with my classical piano blog. I should have Mozart Sonata K.280 in F Major, 3rd Mov. (Presto) for my Grade 8 piano exam that I’ll be doing in April 2012 uploaded in the next few days. Just trying to reach that ‘Presto’ tempo!Difficult enough but I’ll get it! Hopefully everyone has had a nice Christmas so far and got everything they wanted/hoped for. I got an iPod docking station, The Inbetweeners Movie DVD and Seasons 1-3 DVD, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 and The Script: Homecoming live at the Aviva Stadium and a new laptop charger, and loads more.

Also, as I was saying about piano above, Waltons Music Store (on Frederick St. North and Georges Street South) are having their sale starting on  Tuesday December 27th. I will be heading into town to Waltons that day to buy two new piano books. As classical music is my favorite, I will be buying Chopin Waltzes and John Field Nocturnes, as they would be my favorite pieces and Chopin being my favorite composer. So keep checking back here for new video uploads throughout the next few days/weeks and don’t forget to check my YouTube channel (ClassicalMusicPiano) for new uploads.

So I hope everyone has a wonderful Christmas and a happy new year and happy piano practicing to whoever plays.
