Reflections on Martin Widmaier’s experiment, 24 achttaktige Etüden nach Frédéric Chopin

Thomas Kabisch
Sum up the essence of a Chopin Etude in eight bars: piano professor Martin Widmaier led this experiment on Chopin’s Etudes op. 10 and op. 25. He then published those eight bars pieces as a
new method to approach those works, together with additional training suggestions. Thomas Kabisch discusses a publication that is more than a simple exercise book for pianists.
