I am a Singaporean pianist and composer. I have studied the piano since 5 years old under Mr Joseph Toh and I graduated from LASALLE College of the Arts with a Diploma in Music in 2013, majoring in Music Composition under Malaysian composer Mr Chong Kee Yong and Singaporean composer Mrs Joyce Koh Bee Tuan.

About The Devil's Etude

I composedthis etude for piano solo in October 2019. I was inspired by a few piano master pieces. They are mainly RobertSchumann’s Toccata in C, Op. 7, Franz Liszt’s Transcendental Etudes no.5 (Feux Follets) and also Ligeti’s L'Escalier du diable. I also quoted the Gregorian chant “Dies Irae” andvaried it in the middle section of this piece. 

** There is an error in the metronome marking in the second section. It should be Allegretto (1 quaver beat= 70) and NOT (1 crotchet beat = 70).

The Devil's Etude is dedicated to my friend Chan Shu Hui.
