Δύσκολα το πιστεύει κανείς αλλά ο Chopin [φωτό, 1849], έγραψε κατ’ αρχήν αυτά τα κομμάτια για εκπαιδευτικούς σκοπούς, για την βελτίωση της τεχνικής του εκτελεστή.
Οι Σπουδές του αποτελούν έκτοτε ένα από τα σημαντικότερα έργα της πιανιστικής φιλολογίας. Ακούμε 5 από την πρώτη δωδεκάδα, έργο 10.
Στην απαράμιλλη εκδοχή του Maurizio Pollini.

It is hard to believe that Chopin [photo, 1949] wrote these pieces for educational purpose in the first place, in terms of improving the player’s technique.
Since then, his studies have been one of the most important works written for piano. We hear 5 from the first 12 of them, op. 10.
In the unparalleled version of Maurizio Pollini.

* For my friends who didn’t know, or first timers here, Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and sometimes mine] musical selections. Do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
