    i had an excellent music teacher. He was none other than the late principal of the SMTA (Singapore Music Teachers Association) Victor Dogget. His son (Nicholas) was my main teacher, and i had Victor too who would drop into the classroom once awhile to critique on my performance.

    Yes the 3rd movement was really alot of runs and stretches and techniques...but i personally felt that it wasn't about the "showcase of how fast your fingers could run" but what that movement meant literally. In fact the whole piece wasn't a showcase of contrast of emotions (that was too literal!), but y it built up to what it had on the 3rd movt.

    seriously, most pieces would have the 3rd movement fast in general anyway, so y should this be different? what was it that this movt had over the previous movements that made it so outstanding and i felt that underlying part was what made the difference, and true to say, different people would have interpreted it differently.

    for me, it made me sad. it made me filled with anger, it seemed to evoke a sense of betrayal ......so thats what i tried to "demonstrate" when i performed for my examiners and hoped they saw what i "painted"....

    Many people got their distinctions for their g8 so i was really lucky.

    ah bin> i can play for u to listen....but hor...first i need to put singer oil onto my joints....abit rusty liao

    Pierre, if you are willing to play. I will supply the singer oil.. haahaa

    Spendork, thanks for the many recommendation and pictures too..

    Where is a good place to buy these album? Someone suggested "That music place" (Not sure if I get the store name correct, without refering to the previous post :P) There is one at Raffles city which is more convenient to me. In fact, I think i sort of "decided" to start learning to appreciate classical when I spend soem time at that store.

    Any good album to buy via Amazon (US)? Might be getting a cookbook from Amazon..

    Hey, there are quite many classical webcasts. Check this out: http://classicalwebcast.com/

    Classical noobs like me would find Romantic and Contemporary pieces more "exciting". Try Rachmaninov's Piano Concertos 2 and 3?

    Hhaha can't believe my first post is about music... =.='''
