Good for Mr. Chopin! All piano teachers would kill their students if they sped up to show off. Learned this early in my "career"


A lot of his works are now being played at inappropriate speed and volume such as Etudes Op.10 No.1, No.5, No.6, Sonate Op.35 mvt.1, to name a few.

That's true. Chopin always wanted his students to pay careful attention to music annotations, markings, tempo indication... Pianists nowadays are trying to show off and it is actually against Chopin's art.

I probably play some of his pieces in the opposite manner of what you guys are saying. I always put in a lot of feeling and probably use way too much rubato. Whenever there's a "ritard," I kind of overdo it. I guess that's because I hate always keeping strict time.
