Does any pro play this exactly as it was written?  I saw a video of Frank Peter Zimmermann playing it and I have I believe the original score but darn if I can tell if he is playing it exactly.  I read that they all skip parts of it due to its difficulty.

I'm sure they all take a bit of license with it.  Artists like to make their own interpretations.  I mentioned in another thread that I have the same Mendelssohn piece recorded by Perlman, Heifetz, Menhuin, and Stern, and no two of them are the same.  Interpretation is part of the art of music.

I've learned so much from my mistakes that I've decided to make some more.

Yeah but they all play the correct notes, don't they?  In this crazy piece, there is left hand pizzicato, trilling, etc going on, and even the score is difficult to understand.
