Ten : Chopin Etudes, Op. 10 ; Godowsky Studies on Chopin Etudes, Op. 10 / David Stanhope, piano.
Making a welcome return to the keyboard, David Stanhope tackles some of the most technically fiendish repertoire in the piano literature - the Godowsky Studies on Chopin's Etudes Op. 10. Written to demonstrate hitherto undiscovered technical possibilities in playing the piano, these works are astounding for their time and remain exciting to the modern listener. They will always be exciting for the performer.... In particular, the left-hand Studies of Godowsky chart new territory, so the whole set of works was filmed throughout the recording sessions, and these are available at youtube by searching Chopin-Godowsky Etudes David Stanhope. He proves it is possible to play these works as written, without any technical cheating!
