comment Purpose of double-sharps and double-flats?
@PatrickDaSilva: Oh okay, fair enough. :-) I'm not good enough yet to play any Beethoven sonatas alas, but in a year or two maybe..!

comment Purpose of double-sharps and double-flats?
@PatrickDaSilva: I already accepted they exist if you read up. :-) Actually, as AlexBasson rightly hinted, I have come across some in my own playing between then and now. Now too many, but from time to time...

comment Pain in left wrist after playing Chopin's Nocturne Op. 9 No. 1
@Dynamo: Sounds sensible. And I'd recommend any of the Clement Sonatinas to start (perhaps you'll breeze through them) or pretty much any of the first 10 sonatas by Mozart. (Note his "Facile" sonata isn't easy at all, funnily enough!)

@Dynamo: Yes, probably a good idea if you can. (Finding a decent piano teacher outside of schools is so hard though, as I know.) They ought to teach you how to hold the tension in the wrist and relax the fingers and arms. Maybe some relatively simple Clementi/Mozart sonatas would be a goods place to start?

You only played for two years when you were young? Methinks this is not enough for such pieces. Your technique is unlikely to be good enough.

comment What are some examples influences from external cultures on the development of Western classical music?
I don't think so... there's definitely some truth in it.

+1 I actually heard something similar, come to think of it... but then I thought polyphonic music only supplanted the Gregorian chant during the late Middle Ages time?

@user1217: No need for the hostility. You're not understanding my questions even. Also, those two forms quickly developed into styles of piece (often keyboard music) if you know your music history. The question is quite clear as I see it.

@Stephen: Not really. I want to see what ones are out there! If I'm not yet aware enough to ask about specific, then I simply cannot.
