Chopin - Étude #1 op 10

Post by FranKiisko » 17 Jun 2012, 13:37

Hi to everyone! Today I'd like to show you one of the pieces that I played recently in a concert. ;)

It's the Étude #1 composed by Frédérik Chopin. It's, in my opinion, very difficult because you have to play the arpeggios very fast and it's hard to keep a continuity between them. For me, this is one of the most difficult Chopin's Études.

It receives the name of "Waterfall Étude" because of the descendant arpeggios that seem a musical waterfall (at least, I interpret this surname like that LOL!)

Well, here you have my performance of this Étude. I hope you like it! :D
