    Yes - you are right. I always get 'piu' and 'meno' mixed up. However, in this case the first piu mosso section (bar 62) is most of the time diminishing, whereas the second one at bar 93 is ff. We need the contrast between the two so that the second one is like the Big Kahuna. (sorry - that's the first thing that popped into my head)

    just listened to this one Monica ... really really good! I loved the last run down to the bass ... that was lovely!

    ps -- Hopefully your story will motivate me to dig deeper on a couple of pieces that are stuck in my psyche as well!

    Big Kahuna? What do you think you are playing, the Beach Boys? :lol:
    Seriously, I got your point. To me it sounds rather weak that way, but now I see that it is a well considered choice of yours and so there's little to say about it.

    Monica,
    compliments for your playing!
    Today I listened at several pieces, included the Chopin piece and the Rachma prelude.
    Very good!
    Ciao,
