Antoine Joubert | Piano

The writing of the studies was considered to be revolutionary for Chopin’s time and remains today a reference in the understanding of piano playing. The studies are not only highly virtuosic, but incredibly expressive and beautiful. Chopin’s eloquent poetry presents a wide range of characters, from tenderness, fragility and charm to rage, passion, sadness and joy. For these reasons, they cannot be considered as simple exercises; they are masterpieces. It’s very interesting to hear the evolution of the writing of Chopin from one study to the next. Even though Chopin did not intend them to be played as a whole the way he intended for his preludes, for example, he organized the studies in a logical and contrasting way that goes far beyond both the expressive and technical limits of the piano writing of his time.
