Chopin’s feelings for Maria left their traces in his Farewell Waltz, Op. 69, No. 1, written on a September morning. The beginning theme is melancholic and nostalgic, reaching a small peak. The second part is played more cheerful, and goes back to the initial theme. The third theme is the most playful, while the fourth theme is marked ‘poco a poco crescendo’.

  13. debo decir que a mis 16 años no me deje influenciar con la musica actual.siempre me gusto la musica barroca clasica el proble es que no se cual me gusta mas.

  14. Requinte de ouvir e deliciar com a musica refinadissima!Qual a beleza da vida,e como também a existencia e plenitude da essencia da busca sublime de sentir emoção.

  15. Very beautifull , bat, what about Schubert?

  16. Exceptional. I have heard the waltz about fifty times, and this is the first time that Chopin’s meaning of “Farewell” is accurately conveyed.
    It’s like hearing the words of farewell spoken.

  17. ……..your touch is very light…it is very good..

  18. Hello Jorgos,

    Just like with Liszt I liked your playing of Chopin. Here you make more rubati.
    Your touch is light, you create a hint of melancholy, not too much. Beautiful.

    Just this: The second part is suddenly quite different from the rest, virtually no pedal, much staccato. It results in a light and cheerful sound. To my taste this doesn’t fit very well with the rest where you create a different atmosphere and sound.

    But all in all: very good playing.

    I’d like to know more about you. What’s your age? Who is/was your teacher?
