Godowsky Lost Etudes: Recreatable?
on: December 21, 2015, 04:46:47 PM
So I read somewhere that it's highly suspected that Godowsky wrote more double etudes and maybe even triple etudes on the Chopin studies, but many were lost. So I thought, "How fun would it be to try combining Chopin Etudes?" I sketched out some ideas for three or four, combining ones with like keys. I've got beginnings for an Op 10/12 and Op 25/12, an Op 10/9 and Op 25/2, and ideas for Op 10/8 and Op 25/3. Yes, I realize that this is literally sacrilegious but hey, it's fun blasphemy xD

Also maybe an Op 10/10 and 25/1 and an Op 10/1 and 10/7.
