Yeah, that's a little different.... grin
2*12 4212 4212 etc.
(Or, grouping the notes as they lie in the hand,
2* 1242 1242 etc.)

* Or, following the cheat in the OP, you can take that first RH note with the LH. smile

But look -- I love them both.

Food for thought: Is it possible really to love two etude opuses at the same time? ha
(Or, if you prefer, etude opera.) grin


I guess I just see op. 25 as being so much more colorful.


Agreed. Now, i'm not Chopin's biggest fan, but his op. 25 is my favourite Chopin work, and probably in my top 10 solo piano works overall. I also like Op. 10 quite a lot, but to me 25 is in a different league.
