Hi to everyone! :)

Well, today i'd like to show you the most difficult piece I've ever played (at the moment). It's the "Étude" number 1 from Godowsky on Chopin's Études. It's the first verision of the "Étude" 1 op 10 from Chopin (that with the arpeggios, in C Major)

Here you have my performance of the original étude: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5REIhTQH8RM

It's one of the four pieces I played in a concert, which I'll upload very soon.

This Étude is a version of arpeggios for both hands created by Godowsky. I've alredy played the étude original from Chopin and I wanted to improve playing Godowsky's version. It has been very hard!! LOL! The left hand moves practically nothing in Chopin's original Étude and in Godowsky's Étude it doesn't stop moving!!

In fact, when the theme of the beggining return, Godowsky wrote optional passages with octaves, what complicate more the piece.

I hope you like it! ;)
