    This was really good and it was about time we got a proper recording of the second etude of Opus 8 ;).

    Nothing to complain about. Just keep on doing what you are doing.

    The recordings are up on the site.

    Aww shucks! lol thanks! That second etude is more difficult than it looks... you look at it and think "only a few lines, how hard can it be?" and then you find that intonation and phrasing is a biatch when you finally get the polyrhythms down.

    Yes I know, I struggled a lot with it before I got a somewhat decent recording of it.

    Bravo! Very impressive! I have only worked on the D# Minor etude. I finally used the excuse that my hands are not large enough to play it. You need no excuses. Great job!
