Nouvelles études, KKIIb/3
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
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).
