It's not bad at all! Just work on bringing out the melody a little more, and finishing up the piece so you can be on your way to perfection! Since it is not complete, I will not rate it, but from what I've heard I'd say you're doing quite well.

So is this the piece everyone'splaying lately? heh


Practice it a lot slower, especially the beginning, the melody in broken octaves is NOT easy and it sounds superugly when you just hit 1 wrong note. Work on your tempo too, you begin a lot faster than you end Smile. And as PS said, you should try to bring out the melody more, there's too much arpeggio and not enough melody.
Apart from that, you're on the right track, nice arpeggio's at the end! Do mind that in the "climax" the first run just goes up and down, and doesn't repeat the before-last octave in the run, like you play it.

it's kinda annoying when it happens ,isn't it

back to top, Celviano, technically, i don't think you hit as many wrong notes as i did, but the recording in general is a bit of plain, maybe a slightly more delicate touch would make the piece sound "sweeter", and yeah, the arppeggio is a bit of “muddy"~~~~~~~~~~~~i try not to make any comparison between ours version(i mean, mine is a joke, at least you are serious)

personaly, i perfer a complete piece rather than a excerpt even it's HOLY-CRAPy, so, i will rate your recording when you post the whole thing up.

A bit hard to tell with this sound quality. The beginning is also a bit faster than you really need to do it. On the whole, you seem to play this a bit more agressively than the piece really calls for (it is called "a sigh" after all and this sounds more like an asthmatic attack). With aggressively I do not necessarily mean volume wise but mainly the way you attack the notes to make it a bit more agitato than at least I think it should be.

However, you have the notes down rather well so I don't think you should have problems with this piece if you just practice more. Once again I am not sure if I can hear it well enough to really give valuable advice, but I would suggest that you try to keep the accompaniment much farther into the background (something even certain professional pianists do not always do sufficiently when the accompaniment is much harder than the actual melody).
