Well guys, as I put in my post of the Chopin's original étude, here is my performance laugh

This is a very curious study that mix up both hands in one of them, the left hand. That means You play melody and accompaniment just with one hand.

IMO Godowsky is a very underrated and unknown composer (maybe because of the difficulty of his works, too) but that lately has again become popular and even played in concert halls, it's not very strange watching pianists playing Godowsky. Even so the pianists should pay more attention to the wit and pianistic "tricks" he uses in his pieces. Thanks to Hamelin and Berzovsky, who became fashionable again the Godowsky's Étude. Also to Francesco Libetta, the only people who has ever played ALL THE 52 STUDIES IN ONE CONCERT. What a beast!!

This study is the first of the set that was recorded (Pachmann -> Pachmann plays Godowsky's Revolutionary Version )

Well, I hope this little historic introduction has been useful to inform you a little bit about these masterpieces qualified by Harold C. Shonberg as "the most impossibly difficult things ever written for the piano".

I have already played one of them, the first verision of the first Chopin's Étude -> Francisco Martí (me) plays Godowsky's version on Chopin's Étude 1 )

Now I'd like to show you the second of my performances. I hope you like this study. Thanks very much for watching it!!  :)
