Garrick Ohlsson (piano)
The Trois nouvelles études were written to order in 1839–40 for a ‘Piano Method’ (Méthode des méthodes de piano) designed by Moscheles and the Belgian critic and composer François-Joseph Fétis. Less taxing than most of the Opp 10 and 25 studies, let alone the bravura études by Liszt, Mendelssohn, Henselt and Thalberg also written specially for the ‘Method’, Chopin’s final didactic compositions are more introspective, although they are still centred on matters of technique (including cross rhythms and varied articulation).

Les Trois nouvelles études (1839–40) furent écrites exprès pour la Méthode des méthodes de piano conçue par Moscheles et le critique et compositeur belge François-Joseph Fétis. Moins ardues que la plupart des pièces des opp. 10 et 25—sans parler des études de bravoure que Liszt, Mendelssohn, Henselt et Thalberg rédigèrent spécialement pour l’occasion—, ces dernières compositions didactiques de Chopin sont davantage introspectives, quoique toujours centrées sur des questions techniques (contre-rythmes, articulation variée etc.).

Français: Hypérion

Die Trois nouvelles études wurden 1839–1840 auf Bestellung für eine Klavierschule geschrieben (Méthode des méthodes de piano), verfasst von Moscheles und dem belgischen Kritiker und Komponisten François-Joseph Fétis. Technisch weniger anspruchsvoll als die meisten Etüden aus den opp. 10 und 25, ganz zu schweigen von den ebenfalls speziell für diese Schule geschriebenen Bravuretüden von Liszt, Mendelssohn, Henselt und Thalberg, sind diese letzten didaktischen Kompositionen Chopins intimer, aber trotz allem auf technische Probleme fixiert (z.B. Polyrhythmie und unterschiedliche Artikulation).
