études / Ian Holtham, piano
This disc reveals the mastery and control of the keyboard which makes Ian Holtham such an exciting and highly acclaimed pianist. Featuring Chopin's 'Twenty-Four Études Op. 10 & Op. 25', perfect examples of their genre, wonderfully innovative in their textures and uncompromisingly challenging in their technical difficulties.
Also includes four studies by Godowsky which use Chopin's études as compositional points of departure and are some of the most demanding and intriguing compositions ever conceived for the piano.
Études, Op 10 (Chopin)
Études, Op 25 (Chopin)
Four Studies on Chopin's Etudes (Leopold Godowsky)
