  1. Hello Sir! (i apologize in advance for my bad english, i'm french). I have been playing piano for 9 years now (I'm 28), and i started myself a "chopin challenge" in november! I did not went through the grade system, but i think i'm somewhere beetwen grade 7 and 8. I never played a lot of chopin, but i recently felt in love with his music, and i decided to work seriously on this composer to be able some day to play his masterpieces (ballades, sonates, ├ętudes...). To achieve that, i decided to advance step by step, and i found online the henle grade classification, which is a very good instrument to prevent any temptation to play harder pieces for my current level. The classification has about 12 or 13 levels, and i decided to begin on level 5 (because the lower levels didn't contain some pleasant work to learn (i know you don't like the word lol)).
    I began the challenge on mid november, and since that i managed to "learn" :

    mazurka 67/4
    nocturne posthumous 20 in C# minor
    valse 64/2
    nocturne 9/1
    polonaise 40/1

    I'm currenlty working on the mazurka 63/3, and my next piece is the the valse posthumous in e minor (B.56).

    So i wish you luck on your challenge (that i will closely follow), and i wanted to say that reading your posts brings a huge motivation, because now i know that i'm not the only one stucked on a "chopin challenge".

    Best regards,

    Ben. (victor.louisvincent@gmail.com)
