Coste, Napoléon - op.38/23 Etude - D08

Post by Bertran » Wed Aug 29, 2018 8:45 pm

One interesting and very useful Etude chiefly for right hand, including thumb that maintain second melody. Left hand have also has its own "chance" at very end.

It is helpful to practice faster and faster tempo. Tempo of this recording is little slower; I can play it faster but is hard to record it faster :)
Nonetheless, recommend to play.

Impressive! This is a difficult study which requires a whole lot of coordination and control to keep those bass notes from ringing over.
Sounds awesome.

Yes, powderedtoastman, this etude is not so easy, specially when you play faster - stamina is expected. But, I respect this etude; magical moment is at 2:00 when composer dismiss one "unvaried" part before and takes the piece to the brilliant end.

Thumb must maintain melody with demanding sustain technique (what is not easily to achieve at any moment). :)

Thanks a lot ! Bertran II

Listening to the piece without a score in front of me I think this is the right time. The basso line is fine for me.

Thanks for sharing that Bertran. Nice work. Sounds like a good etude to put on my list of pieces to work through.

:merci:

Hi DanKimmorley,

Actually, this useful piece could be played very fast (as Llobet did) but for my taste at to high speed it is harder to bring and recognize a melody.
But, at any speed it is useful and fun to play.

Thank you for your nice words.

Bertran II
