Ah, I remember my father playing this piece. I've never attempted it myself. Maybe I'll give it a look. I'm pretty sure I've got the music somewhere.

Chopin has never been my favourite (Beethoven usually gets my vote). Apparently, he didn't really like this piece himself :?.

Nice rendition. I often find the Chinese virtuosos a little "clinical", but this was very nice indeed.

I've been working on Beethoven's Sonata No. 8 in C Minor for about two years now! Something about it appeals to the "jazzer" in me - especially from about the two minute mark.
Don't forget, there's much going on at the main site:
