    The only reason I ever wanted to originally learn 
    <a href="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scherzo_No._2_(Chopin)">this piece</a> was so 
    that I could play the sweet arpeggios in the middle section. Re-learning the entire
    thing would take more than the 3-5 hours I allot myself each week for these
    projects, so I spent a few hours re-memorizing and practicing the middle section
    arpeggios. God, they're so good. I highly recommend listening to someone more
    talented play them.

    Amusingly, and unrelatedly, this scherzo is featured in a 
    <a href="https://youtu.be/MBTxghBT7c8?t=366">Woody Woodpecker cartoon</a>, wherein
    the piano catches on fire.

    This is a fairly decent recording as I only hit a few wrong notes and mostly
    remembered the correct order in which order they're played.
