Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0825842484, Paperback)The third volume of the Godowsky Collection is primarily devoted to one of Godowsky's most remarkable and controversial projects, the virtuosic studies be based on the Etudes from Frederic Chopin's Opp. 10 and 25. Praised and reviled in equal measure when they were first performed and published (1894-1914), these "studies" are both elaborate and respectful commentaries on Chopin's genius by a great admirer, and tests of the outer limits of piano technique.
The volume is rounded out with the 1899 concert arrangements of Chopin's Rondo, Op.16 and six waltzes drawn from Op. 18, Op.64 and Op. 70. As with the previous volumes, the fascinating and extensive notes and biography are by noted Godowsky scholar, Dr. Millan Sachania.
