Very good! laugh I played this etude and made the mistake of thinking it's one of the easier ones (and getting it into one's fingers is a quick task), but it's actually very tiring and difficult to keep the momentum going all the way without fatigue. Good job!!

Nice work! I've been working on this one on the side and will concur about its difficulty. smile

VERY convincing interpretation, thanks! You really nailed it, the sense of momentum was very clear. Yes, one does tend to think of this one as one of the 'easier' ones, just another basic arpeggio etude. Haven't so far brought it up to this kind of level though - requires time, and work!

Now what about the previous 11 etudes? wink

Very convincing interpretation indeed !!! Have been working on this myself for the past year - and there is nothing easy about it !!!

Thank you very much for your good and encouraging words. I agree with Carey, the etude is not easy, and neither of Chopin etudes are easy. i believe each has its own particularity and difficulty. And difficulty, I believe, is a very subjective term - especially for Chopin etudes.

Cancakmur, you're getting scary good. Thanks especially for bringing the melodic singing line into such high relief -- I don't think I've ever heard the shape of that line so convincingly rendered, amidst all the arpeggiation.

Thanks for sharing this!

Can, I just listened to your Chopin 3rd Scherzo on your YouTube channel. Please post it on Piano World, because it is an absolutely fantastic performance!! I was really thrown back in my chair.

The op.25/12 was considerably good. Bravo!

But, that Scherzo definitely deserves its own thread. OSK thanks for pointing to that.

He is getting better and better each day and it is very nice to hear new fresh interpretations.

Thanks for sharing.

Thank you all once more;
I am really flattened by your comments.
This etude truly caused me quite trouble. Just recently, it has reached a more or less convincing level.

As for scherzo, it is one of my absolute favourites from Chopin, and in my opinion, the most beautiful of the 4 Scherzi. It has been a true joy to play it since I began it.

I will post it here (the scherzo) soon!

Can.

More beautiful than Opus 54? Have to disagree there. But it's a great piece.
