Musical Interlude: The Minute Waltz

I'm relearning lots of classical music I used to play.  I'm a bit rusty, but a lot is coming back to me quickly.  Today I recorded myself playing Chopin's Minute Waltz . . . twice.  The two recordings are very different, but maybe work in different ways.

I plan on recording and uploading lots more Chopin and also some Mozart and Beethoven, when I have more time to polish them.  Maybe some Liszt eventually.  It'll be a while before I try to tackle any Prokofiev.
