Piano Etude Op. 10, No. 2 in A-minor

$2.50

Etude Op.10, No.2 in A minor is a technical study composed by Fryderyk (Frederic) Chopin for the piano. This etude is an exercise in developing the weaker fingers of the right hand by indicating a rapid chromatic scale to be played with the third, fourth, and fifth fingers.

The thumb and index finger are made to play accompanying chords, leaving the work of playing the chromatic melody to the third, fourth and fifth fingers. This fingering, which Chopin indicated himself note by note in almost 800 numbers, constitutes the revival of an older 17th century pre-Bach harpsichord fingering.
