Impossible Chopin



This piece is Chopin's notoriously difficult Etude Op 10 n 5 also termed "black keys" since it's all played on the black keys of the piano. Chopin's etudes (or studies) are one of the hardest out there in the piano world. I can play a few of his studies (e.g. Op 10 n 3 and n 12) but haven't managed to play "black keys" yet!!

Anyway this 11 year old makes it look so easy, trust me, it ain't!!

Enjoy!

I agree that this cant be easy to master... My question however is WHO would WANT to? Its sounds bland, like something you would hear in a very old bar at 2 am.

You need a guitar my friend!

I have to agree with you on this ABIT...

to see a PROPER performance that has passion then click here:

but skip to the 2nd half of the clip to get to the music.

On the other hand, I agree, the guitar is amazing, but I am not skilled with it!

I'd love to play Albeniz
