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

Chopin Etude #1 op 10

Post by GrahamSes » 05 Mar 2018, 21:46

In measure 8 of Chopin Etude Op. 10 No. 5, there is a rolled chord in the left hand and a single note in the right hand. What is the order of the notes combined?

--top/highest left-hand chord note together with right?
--bottom/lowest left-hand chord note together with right?

In measure 22 of Prelude Op. 28 No. 2, there is a right-hand chord roll and an octave in the left hand. How is this played?

--top/highest right-hand chord note together with left-hand octave?
--bottom/lowest right-hand chord note together with left-hand octave?

In measure 8 of Prelude Op. 28 No. 3, there is a right hand chord roll, and a single left-hand note.
Same questions.

In measure 71, Prelude in C# minor, Opus 45 there is a right-hand chord roll with a grace note before it, representing the lowest chord note. There is a tied note in the left-hand. How is this played?

Thanks.
