Chopin Nocturne in Eb Major

This was the first piece of music I ever performed for an audience. I was 12 years old. At that time I was fearless, so I did not know how tricky this is to play. It is perhaps the most famous of Chopin’s nocturnes, so I wanted to get it right before sharing it.

Chopin Prelude in E Minor

This is one of the most famous short pieces ever written and has appeared so many times in movies and other sound tracks that it never ceases to surprise me. Like other shorter, slower preludes it is always in books for students. I used the theme for my own “Chopin Variation”.

Chopin Prelude in A Major

This is possibly the shortest and easiest piece Chopin ever wrote. But it is also very famous, and like all things that sound good, it’s not as easy as it sounds.

Chopin Prelude in C Minor

This piece is entirely made of big, massive chords. It is in all books written for developing students, but it was not written for students and is not at all easy to play.

Chopin Prelude in B Minor

This is another famous, short prelude given to students. It sounds pretty easy, but it’s not.
