About the Etude for piano
As in any etude, one particular technical aspect of the piano is explored. This Etude for piano explore the arpeggiated chords. The melody is sentimental and romantic. The harmony is diatonic at first but modulates into a different key. The harmonic development in here is very colorful, deep and emotionally intense. Following section brings back the opening melody that modulates to the original key. There is also a Coda that allows now the arpeggios to be played by the right hand while the melody is given to the left.
This Etude won the First Prize Golden Key Music Festival of Vienna 2015
