Chopin Etude Op. 10, No. 3

Frederic Chopin (1810-1849) composed 27 etudes meant as solo studies for piano.

Chopin's √Čtudes are the foundation of a new system of technical piano playing that was radical and revolutionary the first time they appeared. They are some of the most challenging and evocative pieces of all the works in concert piano repertoire.
Here is one of my favorites -Chopin Etude Op. 10, No. 3, performed by Valentina Igoshina. Enjoy.

  1. Chopin's Etudes provide the equipment for the rest of Chopin's almost invariably difficult music, and give the key to music that followed Chopin.
