Wonderful, Malcolm! This pair of nice etudes are musically interesting while working on ones legato 3rds and 6ths.....and not the endless scales one often encounters- IMSLP has Op.28 No.2 of the six etudes in the set--another worthwhile etude. Let's keep our eyes out for the remaining five in this Op.28 set--the titles alone look interesting.

Yes, thanks for this Malcolm. I have the first etude of Op. 28, and have been meaning to upload this for a couple of years, but not gotten round to it :roll:

Rafael Joseffy (1852-1915) - again on IMSLP, but a poor copy, so again have scanned the copy I held.

Quite the study in double notes! Thanks, Malcolm.

I couldn't see if this had been posted here before (and as the site has been so quiet this week, I thought I would upload another scan of mine).

Abram Chasins (1903-1987) - his Op 3 Etude Appassionato.

Thank you for the Chasins, Malcolm. A very worthwhile etude indeed. I find the left hand leaps a bit challenging so I'll be working on this for a bit.

Thank you Malcolm for the Chasins Etude. This one is quite a challenge to physical strength me thinks.

Thank you, dear Sir!

The piece is dedicated to Wilhelm Backhaus, whose consistent high level of performance pleased US conductors and audiences alike.
Although Backhaus was a representative of the somewhat dull ("hausbacken") Leipzig school, his technique was flawless.
Paul Badura-Skoda is among those who regard Backhaus' reading of Brahms' Paganini Variations as the most perfect ever recorded.

My response is a bit late, but thank you Malcolm for this good scan. This etude is much fun to practise/play!

Yes, thanks Malcolm. I remember playing this Heymann etude back in May so played it again today. It is, as Kroket says, much fun to play. I would vote for Etudes always being on page ONE as the many etudes posted here in Pianophilia are my principal entertainment.
