I finished this week’s Etude of the Week on time!
Boy was this one tough! It’s labeled a B minor etude, but about a third of the way in we switch to B Major and wander in and out of that delightful key the rest of the time. Lots of high F sharps, lots of nasty sharps and double sharps, lots of big leaps: your average etude nightmare. I actually think parts of this etude sound pretty cool, but they would certainly be even cooler transposed a half step in either direction.
See you tomorrow for some Andersen!
