Chopin - Nocturne in C sharp minor (excerpt)

Postby Lya » 21 Jan 2009, 11:15

Hello !
This is my version of Chopin's nocturne in C sharp minor (the most famous, yes... ^^)

http://fr.youtube.com/watch?v=VweGBFXqiFs

This is only an excerpt because I didn't have the time for the piece from the debute to the end.

Thanks for your views :)

I must say, that was very good excerpt!

I can't wait to hear the whole piece!

quite good, I may add. How wide is your span? 10 keys? 9? Perhaps the camera distorted the video, but it looks like you have long fingers.

Thank you :)
I didn't understand your phrase, juufa :( ("How wide is your span?"). But I've quite long hands, yes :p

My French is nonexistant, so I will try my best to rephrase.

How many keys can you reach? Can the thumb depress a "C" and your 5th finger depress an "E" one octave higher? (i.e. A 10th?)

The video-camera is on top of the piano which could make your hands seem out of proportion to the rest of your body.

Did that make sense?

Ah, ok !
Yes, I can do a 10th =) (but it's difficult, I can do a 9th more easily)
