xx Chopin Etudes
May 25, 2011, 03:58:17 AM by bobloblaw717

Im an advanced player but i have never once played a Chopin Etude before. ive listened to all of them many times and i was wondering if someone could rank these in difficulty

Op. 10 No. 5
Op. 25 No. 3
Op. 25 No. 9
Op. 25 No. 1

P.S. if someone could also rank the REST of the chopin etudes that would be FANTASTIC, thank you!

Hello, I just want to ask if I should play the staccatos in this piece from the wrist or arm(elbow?).  Staccato from the arms is much more tiring.  So I was thinking that I should lift from the wrists instead.  Or should I use a mix? Undecided

Also, should I keep the accents/stresses for the strong beats as written at the strat throughout the whole thing or should I leave them out for the > and < bits?


xx Chopin Butterfly Etude Op. 25, No. 9
June 13, 2007, 05:26:03 AM by ryan2189

I have been playing this piece for quite some time now, and I feel as though the last step that is preventing me from playing this piece well is the tension that I feel each time I strike the pattern with the two consecutive octaves. I sometimes go in and out with being relaxed and then eventuyally tense up again. I can't really grasp what I am missing here, but maybe some others have had a similar problem. I have tried to understand the relaxation concept more, but I literally can't "touch" on it yet. The legato phrasing is something I am good at, but trying to flop my hands around to hit octaves is something completely different. I want to say that I have successfully completed a Chopin Etude and I don't want to back away from this one without giving it my all.

xx How difficult is op. 25 Nr. 9?
September 10, 2006, 01:39:31 PM by franz_

I'm gonna start this etude. How difficult is it? What are the difficult parts? How difficult is it when you compare it to other etudes? Let me know  Wink

xx Which is harder of Chopin's Etude Opus 25?
August 20, 2006, 01:39:24 AM by victor_ching


Which is harder? Winterwind or Butterfly? It would be interesting to look at the results.

In addition to that, can anyone provide me with the approcimate grade for each of the 2 pieces?

     Hey guys...

         iv been learning this etude as i love it and im finding it ok to play,,apart from the pedalling.now im self taught over last four years so there probably techneques ive not learnt due to having no teacher..

but how does one tackle this piece,and how do you pedal the etude....

to me its a simple base accompanied by broken chords in the right hand and two octaves but to much peddalling gives a blur effect..

any tips please.. and for the peice alone   

  thanks all

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.
