CHOPIN : ETUDES op. 10 / POLLINI – REPOST

Δύσκολα γίνεται πιστευτό ακούγοντάς τα, αλλά ο Frederic Chopin έγραψε αυτά τα κομμάτια για εκπαιδευτικούς σκοπούς, για την βελτίωση της τεχνικής του σολίστα.
Οι
Σπουδές του αποτελούν έκτοτε ένα από τα σημαντικότερα έργα της πιανιστικής φιλολογίας. Ακούμε 5 από την πρώτη δωδεκάδα, Op. 10.
Στην απαράμιλλη δεύτερη ηχογράφησή τους από τον
Maurizio Pollini
– DG, 1972

Unbelievable as it may seem hearing them, Frederic Chopin wrote these pieces for educational purpose, in terms of improving the soloist’s technique.
Since then, his
Studies are considered among the most important works written for piano. We hear 5 from the first 12 of them, Op. 10.
In the unparalleled
Maurizio Pollini’s
second recording – DG, 1972

    ‘Studies’ have always amused me, along with ‘Children’s pieces’ by various composers. You always know that what you’ll get is a humdinger of a knuckle-crunching piece that only the demi-gods can attempt. Mere mortals, keep away…

      Agreed! And, in this particular case, the final warning applies also for most of the virtuosos!
