xx Chopin Etude op.10 N.6

Said to be the easiest Chopin etude but already a challenge for me.
23 more to go!

xx Chopin Op.10 N.6 question

That etude is arguably the less technically challenging of the 24. Yet Chopin called it an "etude" which suggests there is something somehow specific to be learnt from it. That's where I'm a little bit puzzled, I don't have at my disposal any book (like Cortot's) to broaden my point of view.
Would like to read your ideas about it: what likely is the pedagogic purpose of the piece?

xx chopin etude 6 opus 10
March 21, 2005, 12:23:13 PM by periscope

Hi pianoforum! This is a fantastic source of knowlege.

I'm currently playing/memorizing the Chopin Etude 6 Opus 10. I started this
piece three weeks ago, and last week I began with Fugue #1 WTC from Bach.
And honestly I find the Fugue much easier to memorize! The Etude just sounds
so strange, it's really hard for me to get a "feeling" for its sound, where it is
going to move next,... Bach on the contrary has nice melodic lines, you can sing
along. My thought on this is that I'm just not used to the harmonies involved,
so could you name any pieces that a similar to this one? Any other help to
efficiently memorize this piece would be appreciated! I'm currently in a state
where I have memorized 2/3 of the piece hands separate. But I'm feeling that
this is not very good for three weeks of practicing.

xx What is etudistic about chopin's etude #6 Op. 10?

i dont get what makes his #6 op.10 an etude at all- the music is not hard and it is slow throughout. even lacks hard runs- what makes this piece hard??

Chopin's etude #6 Op. 10 is very slow and calm throughout... so what is the big deal? I imagine etudes to always be difficult physically such as large ranges and/or fast tempo, but this song has neither.... so what's up?

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
