Am I deaf/blind to actually think that SOME great pianists omit SOME of the middle notes in this etude to play it up to speed?

In Lisitsa's recording: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vx02vWfSGiU
I can't see her index finger (finger 2) playing any notes in some, if not most parts. I can only hear/see the thumb + the chromatic line

Now, this one's quite obvious.

I also can't quite hear the inner notes in this one

Now, I'm learning this etude as of the moment, and the inner notes are killing me Sad

You try to hit a hundred.  And if a few fall by the wayside, pazienza...

I don't know, but I think there a difference between missing a few notes accidentally 'in battle' or making a conscious choice to omit certain parts.

Have you seen the tutorials given by Paul Barton on the 10-2, BTW: p://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wSbDwhLyGso ? (this is part 1)

I think in those videos i have posted, it was a conscious choice Smiley Awesome tutorial though Smiley I actually did what he was saying in part 2

Yes, some pianists quite unashamedly miss the middle notes. Not all, though!
