Awesome Lesser Played Etudes

It’s my favourite kind of writing - pianistic to the extreme.

Everything is written in patterns that work for the hand, but take complexity to the peak of tonal potential. Rather proto-Godowskian.




I really love the Debussy etudes. They should be played more. And then there are the Ligeti Etudes which are played quite often luckily.

I also love the Liapunov Etudes, they should really be played more often. Busoni also has some cool ones.

Yeah and also Bartok … and Messiaen!

Haha, I’ve seen the Mereaux before but it’s still epically amusing, particularly from 0.50.

It’s really the most absurd piece of music I know, god would I have loved to see the faces of the audience when he premiered this. :smiley:

Thing is that the theme is actually really valiant, there would be no problem at all making that sound good. Not sure about the opening and that octave flurry at the end though. :joy:

Liszt and Chopin might have written better music but there was only one :sunglasses: in the city.

Randomly that this piece was written by Chopin’s neighbor is somehow even more hilarious
