Chopin Black Keys Etude Op. 10 No. 5: An Exercise in Light-Hearted Frivolity
.
.
Chopin Etude Op 10 No 5 is one of the most celebrated pieces from this renowned pianist and composer. Indeed, many consider this oeuvre to be exceedingly challenging even for advanced artists. However, this was not the reason that I decided to record the piece. Black Keys is instead a celebration of spontaneity and impulsiveness; a demonstration of charm alongside what I feel to be a slightly naughty nature. Even those who are not entirely familiar with this prolific artist will observe that Opus 10 No. 5 drastically differs from some of his more melancholic and even vitriolic nocturnes. Thus, I was immediately drawn to its melodic personality from the very beginning.

...A Character unto itself....
.
.
As a pianist, one of my intentions is to delve into the character of each individual piece; as if to breathe a new sense of life into a work that may be centuries old. However, I quickly learned that ‘s Black Keys had the exact opposite effect. Its sense of sonorous flirtation and its charming nature soon transported my fingers along those very same black keys. It were as if Chopin himself were taking me on a personal journey and I was a mere traveller along for the ride. I should still mention that there were indeed a few challenges which needed to be overcome. Much like the other works created by Chopin, it was necessary to find a delicate balance between frivolity and intention. The light-hearted nature of this piece would quickly be squandered had I failed to play it with an equal amount of tenderness and compassion. To me, this was the real trial. Technical proficiency is one thing. Playing such a song with the heartfelt emotion that matches its innate character is something entirely different.
