chopin on ice
Instead I spent the afternoon at home with my oft-neglected piano, and there was something about the day that somehow focused me on Chopin. I pulled out my Chopin piano music and made up my mind to find some pieces that I can learn and master, which is not easy with the works of Frédéric Chopin.
And I found two or three works that I spent the afternoon on. I have a long ways to go. You see, there is something deceivingly complex and difficult in Chopin -- maybe not for the listener but certainly for the pianist. I have decided to be challenged and not intimidated. I will keep you posted.
