Chopin Ballade No. 4 (2021)
Dear Friends, I finally got a chance to make a newer recording of this Ballade. I feel it is closer to my view of the masterwork than that earlier version from when I was young. The thematic transformations and pulse are much more natural. More importantly, the narration is uninterrupted from beginning to end, so it holds together much better. Also, I feel that this version is more vulnerable, which makes it more disarming, perhaps. Let me know your thoughts...

Sergio Tiempo's arrangement of Chopin Etudes: thirds with revolutionary
Answering the request of some of my followers, this was part of a program I did in France for Eve Ruggieri I think around 2003 (not sure). It's an arrangement I had made because I was so lazy and thought I would save time by warming up with two different etudes at the same time. Hence Op. 25, No. 6 in the right hand, and an adapted Op. 10, No. 12 in the left... Warning: not to be taken as a serious piece of music. Just having fun.
