Chopin Scherzo 3 by Rachel Breen (age 12)
Comments encouraged- Rachel performed this live in the San Francisco Chopin Competition for Young Pianists. She was twelve years old at the time, and her interpretation is entirely different now. She fell in love with the Pogorelich and Argerich versions of this piece, and although one month before the competition, she was scheduled to perform Chopin's third ballade, a piece she has now studied for four years, she decided to take a chance and change her selection. This gave her very little time to learn the piece.
Listen to Rachel play this at 15 in the Thomas and Evon Cooper International Competition:
