Musician's or Publisher's Notes
between 1829 -1832, each of Frederic Chopin's Etudes, opus 25 present a given technical challenge, but are also
miniatures of great expressive nuance, specific mood and poetic gesture. One of Chopin's gifts as a composer was to
be able to communicate a different world in every Etude, within a limited
amount of space. (I. Faliks)
Op. 25, No. 7
This piece is one of the masterworks of Chopin's melodic and poetic
genius. It is not a "virtuoso" etude-i.e. based on a particular technical challenge-but
a study of counterpoint (two melodic lines combined). For the interpreter, it
is a study in tone color possibilities, and a challenge in finding a balance
among all its different voices. However, the most important aspect in
performing this piece is to create a feeling of great poetry and art. A. M. Ammara

Chopin old friend, you have been with me so many times, curtailing woes, deepening joys. You've never left me, always carried me through storms and blizzards and helped in hazardous occasions through cliff and crag puting on my forehead shining breakthroughs, showering me with discoveries and awesome views and blowing on my soul insights of love,sorrow, passion and hope...
