Because I like to pretend that people care

Come hear the worst possible public performance of Chopin's Scherzo No. 2 in the Krannert Lobby:

It'll be the slowest performance of the piece in history, and also probably the one with the most wrong notes. If you get a kick out of torturing yourself, you should stop by! Or just come to hear the Drummers of Burundi for free.

I don't know; I performed it pretty slow in a recital in high school once. Slow was fine, but I'm pretty sure mine was slow and bad.

Burundi borders Rwanda and Tanzania. Thank you.

I had forgotten how difficult it is to play in the Krannert Lobby. I kept smashing the keys with more and more force until I wasn't even playing straight chords anymore... tone clusters everywhere! It wasn't until after I finished the piece and had calmed down a little that I realized my problem was the space and not the instrument: the Krannert Lobby doesn't have resonance. I should have asked for a mic. Oh well.
