One specific feature of Chopin’s oeuvre is a peculiar synthesising of different genres. Some etudes, for example, display characteristics of a nocturne (the E major and E flat minor from Op. 10 and the C sharp minor from Op. 25), a scherzo (the G flat major from Op. 10, which according to Anton Rubinstein is a kind of ‘refined joke’, and the E minor from Op. 2http://skl5) or an impromptu (also the G flat major from Op. 10). Chopin’s etudes have been called ‘immortal’ works (Ignacy F. Dobrzyński). For Hugo Leichtentritt, they were ‘a succession of felicitous discoveries of the capacities of the piano’, for Vladimir Jankélévitch, ‘a microcosm, a miracle’, and for Mieczysław Tomaszewski, ‘the revelation of new horizons in the domain of piano playing’.


Recorded in Witold Lutosławski Concert Studio of Polish Radio, Warsaw 6-8 , 10 May and 9 June 2015.
