Chopin's Etudes are the foundation of a new system of technical piano playing that was radical and revolutionary the first time they appeared. They are some of the most challenging and evocative pieces of all the works in the concert piano repertoire. This edition includes the 24 Etudes, Op. 10 and Op. 25. Pedaling is taken from the original manuscripts and first editions, and fingering is editorial. Also included is an outstanding CD recording from the Naxos label.
