Thank you for this awesome master class post, Jimmy. This gives me hope & inspiration that maybe I could learn this piece. I tried once before, was told that "it wasn't for me", and then I abandoned it. But learning to play this Impromptu has been a life goal. This makes me think it is a possibility for me. This was fascinating to watch. Thanks, again!

Jimmy, Thanks for posting this. This program is one of my favorite series by Cyprien Katsaris. Japanese TV had a program of "All Chopin Masterclass" in 1993. Some of them are in French with Japanese captions and others are in English. You can learn from Nocturne Op.9 No.2 to Walts Op 64 No.1, Polonaise OP. 53, etc. For example..
