The Krause etude is excellent. I especially like that this etude exercises both hands pretty much equally.
Thanks for posting!

I am posting performances of some etudes by (I assume)the contemporary composer A. A, Saygun just because I think are terrific pieces that might be of interest and not because I want the score. They are played by Can Cakmur, the most recent winner of the Hamamatsu Competition, although they were recorded awhile ago.

Here is a performance of Etudes 1-5 with the score:

I'm really interested in other posters' opinions of these pieces. I'm guessing they're not particularly well known.

These are certainly remarkably original pieces. While I'm not a big fan of most atonal music, the rhythms in these etudes really held my interest. I especially like #4 & #5.

wondering if anyone has the etudes in all keys by

Selmar Bagge - Op. 13 and/or Op. 14 ?

Seems like they could be useful...

Thank you, this is the Bagge Op. 13 Twelve Etudes - one that I was looking for!

Thanks for finding those Bagge etudes, Paul. They address yet another interesting technical problem.
