Scriabin Etudes
« on: May 14, 2011, 09:53:01 PM »
If one needs an "etude of virtuosity," which Scriabin etudes would fit the bill? So many of them are so short can they stand up to things like the trancendentals?

Besides the famous D sharp minor one?
I would say the G sharp minor one..http://imslp.info/files/imglnks/usimg/e/ee/IMSLP02933-Scriabin_-_Etude_Op.8_No.9.pdf
Note the (pppp) at the end, quite interesting.

what is 'virtuosity' in the first place... only fast dazzling technique?
Well, to answer your question in terms of what competitions ask, I think from opus 8 numbers 3, 7, 9, 10 and 12 are for sure ok. I don't really know the opus 42 well by heard, but number 5 fits as well.
Currently learing:
- Chopin: Ballade No.3
- Scriabin: Etude Op. 8 No. 2
- Rachmaninoff: Etude Op. 33 No. 6

I agree, I love the G sharp minor one! It's about 5 minutes long which at least I wouldn't classify as short. It's also pretty unknown and very virtuosic with all those octaves.
