It's no secret that I sometimes post videos of my piano music in order to astound and enthrall you
(he says with sarcasm).
Here is my latest YouTube video. I usually post my piano recordings on SoundCloud, because it's a much easier process.
Making a video for my music is always a big pain in the ass. I had to tax my creative abilities for this video. What the heck kind of visuals can I use for Chopin's Revolutionary Etude??
After much thought and deep pondering, I decided to enhance the music with clouds.
Don't ask Why?, because I have no plausible explanation. Perhaps because they look dramatic.
This is Frederic Chopin's (famous) etude for piano in C minor, op.10 no.12 known as the Revolutionary Etude.
Chopin wrote it in 1831 when he was about twenty. It was inspired by the 1831 Russian attack on Warsaw.
When I was a music student in Los Angeles I performed nearly all of Chopin's 24 piano etudes and recorded several of them.
Unfortunately, this performance of the C minor etude is the only one of my Chopin etude recordings that has survived.
