It has always been a childhood dream of mine to play well the piano piece Fantaisie-Impromptu. Unfortunately, I was not able to learn the piece with my piano teacher while I was learning the piano.
Recently, as an adult who is almost 20 years removed from piano lessons, I decided to try to learn the piece, and I noticed that the piece is fairly difficult. As explained by Wikipedia:
[Fantaisie-Impromptu] uses many cross-rhythms (the right hand plays sixteenth notes against the left hand playing triplets).
It's fairly easy for me to play the right hand part and the left hand part separately, but I find it very difficult to keep the correct rhythm when I try to play both hands together. In addition, most performers seem to play the piece very fast!
How should I practice this difficult piano piece?
Note: I do think that this is a piece that I should be able to learn with a reasonable amount of practice, as it was very easy for me to pick up easier pieces such as The Piano Sonata No. 16 in C major, K. 545, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Rondo Alla Turca.
