I'm having a little difficulty in perfecting the following accents in Chopin's Impromptu. (Here's the sheet music I'm referencing for those interested. )
If you look at the following picture, you'll notice how the acccents are placed at on the first note of each set of 4 in the right hand. This is rather natural to play and doesn't come with much difficulty (especially considering it's played with the thumb, which usually is rather strong.)
However, later in the piece Chopin mixes it up and places the accent on the second note of each set of 4.
This is where my difficulty appears. Maybe it's because I have a weak 5th finger, but I just cannot seem to get the same amount of emphasis on the accented note as I did in the previous bars where the accent was on the first note. (Especially at the high speeds at which this is supposed to be played.)
As I type this out I realize that the best solution may be to simply work on strengthening my 5th finger with various exercises. Any recommendations for any specific exercises or tips for playing this piece of music?
