The Musical Gerbil

So many commenters seem blissfully unaware that the tempo Chopin indicated for this piece is actually (despite the "Lento Sostenuto") incredibly fast: 50bpm in half-measure. Pollini is virtually the only pianist who actually plays it approaching the tempo Chopin wrote (even then he's quite a bit slower), so any criticisms of this being too fast, take it up with Fred...

Word is that it was patterned after the phosphorous "dancing" on the surface of the sea during the boat ride by Chopin and Georges Sand to Majiorca (sp?). Hence, a high tempo is likely.

Thierry Théodose

Definitely too fast, don’t like it at all. Never seen this piece played so fast,, just as if he would like to get rid of it 😱😱Prefer Evgueni Kissin’s version by far better

Jim, TWICE's pet gerbil that's it! I had the feeling that this version sounded more emotional

who even cares, if there is zero imagination or poetry in this ice cold performance?

Good thing people in the youtube comments know more about tempo than a world class pianist.

Let's Play Piano !

Bartoldo prove me that I’m wrong then

Let's Play Piano !

Bartoldo wrong, check by yourself, I have the scores under my eyes, I know what I’m talking about.


@Let's Play Piano ! You even realise Chopin wrote the metronome indication to be even faster than how Pollini plays it?
