About

For classical pianists, the 24 Chopin Études are one of the holy grails of the repertoire. Like few other composers before or after, Chopin was able to compose exercises that double as brilliant, melodic showpieces, as delightful for listeners are they are rewarding for performers. Interpreting the entire Op. 10 and Op. 25 cycles in one sitting is akin to climbing a pianistic Mount Everest, opening and closing with thunderous arpeggios (Op. 10, No. 1 in C Major and the “Ocean” Étude Op. 25, No. 12) and passing through moments of great tenderness (Op. 10, No. 3 “Tristesse” and Op. 25, No. 1 “Aeolian Harp”) and terrifying virtuosity (like Op. 10, No. 4 and Op. 25, No. 11 “Winter Wind”).
