Étude Op. 10 No. 11 in E-Flat Major "Arpeggio"

By 

Frédéric Chopin

Chopin's Étude Op. 10, No. 11, in E-Flat Major, composed in 1830, is part of his set of twelve études, each designed to address specific technical challenges for pianists. While Chopin didn't explicitly state the inspiration for this particular étude, it is known for its strikingly fast and light character, which contributes to its nickname, "Arpeggio." This étude is celebrated for its intricate and virtuosic arpeggios and greatly shows off Chopin's emphasis on developing pianistic brilliance within the Romantic piano repertoire.

Étude Op. 10 No. 11 in E-Flat Major "Arpeggio"

by:

Frederic Chiu

Chopin never explicitly wrote an etude for the pedal, but many of his studies give you the opportunity to create new challenges with your feet. For Frederic Chiu, the Etude in E-flat major, Op. 10 No. 11 is just such a piece. Chiu focuses on applying his "surgical shift pedal" technique to create the effect of an in-focus melody and out-of-focus accompaniment. He also takes liberty in interpreting Chopin's markings, turning the rolls in either hand into one long role from bottom to top, like a harp. The resulting arpeggios are challenging, but as Chiu shows, developing your pedal technique will actually free up your fingers to execute some of the trickier intervals in the right hand.
