Chopin revolutionary etudes is a project which describes how Chopin revolutionized music by composing etudes for his students.
Chopin Revolutionary Etudes
Chopin Revolutionary Etudes is a project designed for people who love music! Whether you are a musician or just love listening to music this project is for you. It is a commentary on Chopin's etudes and how they changed piano playing and music forever.
In 1829 Chopin heard Paganini play a concert in Poland. He was amazed at his violin technique. Chopin set out to codify piano technique to teach his students. And after composing his etudes he felt he failed because they were too difficult for his students to play.
But what he created was miraculous. Even though Chopin set out to create technical works, each etude is a beautiful piece of music and the technique is used ONLY in creating a beautiful piece of music. Some of the greatest melodies of all times are contained in these etudes.
This project will bring out all the unique elements of Chopin's Etudes. But it will also teach a lot about playing and listening to music. After completing this series you will not only know a lot about Chopin's etudes but also a lot about music in general. It will be a right brain left brain workout! Great for staying mentally alert. It will be like viewing art in 3 dimensions rather than 2 dimensions.
We at Chopin Revolutionary Etudes are opening this project wide open. We welcome comments and input and participation. We want your comments and suggestions and participation. That is just as important as your funding.
The money raised will be used for this Project. As you can see in the introduction video the project has to be edited and tightened up a bit.
Also please note that this project is about quality and not quantity. It is better to do a fantastic job writing commentary on 3 etudes than to do a mediocre job on all 24 etudes. A successful end to this project would be to record at least 3 etudes superbly. The dream is of course is to record all 24 etudes!
We look forward to your participation and thank you for viewing the Chopin's Revolutionary Etudes Project.
