What about this, PJF? You intended to say something?

This etude is very hard. I read somewhere that Horowitz could not attempt it.

It's a piece I've mastered. I have an awful lot to say about it, after I figure out exactly what I want to say.


You're right, Anh, Horowitz said it was stupidly awkward. He disliked it and the etude 10/1 for that reason.

Indeed, but Horowitz's problem was that his hands were too big and the jumps were too small, so he couldn't fit his hands everywhere or something. That's what I heard.

this etude is dedicated to the repeated notes. It is difficult indeed, as all the etudes.
the complete op. 10 was inspired by strong feelings of anger and worry after the russians conquered warsaw in 1830 (same as the first scherzo). The most suitable example is op. 10 no. 12, of course.

the whole 27 etudes have been written between age 19 to 22 or 23 and there are an importand part of the revolution Chopin has done. It's quite amazing that he did it in such a young age. The first piano concerto to be written was, atually, no. 2 in f minor and it was when chopin was only 19, before the ballades, scherzos, most nocturnes and most etudes where written..! and it's absolutely amazing and difficult (I tell you from experience).

The English langage isn't my main one so it's not perfect. are you all from the US?

English is not a problem, as long as you can make people understand you! We're not all from US. As you can see, LOL_NL is from the Netherlands, Morrisseyman from Australia... and I'm from Vietnam.
