The whole repertory of piano music does not contain a study of perpetuum mbile so full of genius and fancy as this particular one is universally acknowledged to be, except perhaps Liszt's Feux Follets.
This nocturne is composed almost entirely of quickly rolled chords of wide span, at a rate of six per hand per measure with the hands close together, creating a harp-like effect - "as if the guitar had been dowered with a soul," writes Huneker. The top notes form a melodic line.
Chopin Etudes, Op. 25
This piece looks striking on the printed page, with its clusters of chords and roll-markings. It takes careful tonal balance and phrasing to give the melody its due while maintaining smooth rapid arpeggiation of the chords that compose it. Kullak calls it a "bravura study of the very highest order for the left hand. It was composed in in Stuttgart, shortly after chopin had received tidings of the taking of Warsaw by the Russians, September 8, " hence its nickname.
Detailed comments on Godowsky's Studies.
Niecks writes, "The composer seems fuming with rage; the left hand rushes impetuously along and the right hand strikes in with passionate ejaculations. Here is no veiled surmise, no smothered rage, but all sweeps along in tornadic passion. The study has an unusual look on the page, as most of the notes are printed smaller than is ordinary, with the accented notes printed at full size.
Another technical difficulty is the occasional need to play two notes on the left hand for every three on the right. And in places the notes of the figuration create motives that counterpoint the main melody. But it would be an error to think that Chopin permitted every one of the small notes to be distinctly heard.

It was rather an undulation of the A flat major chord, here and there thrown aloft anew by the pedal. Throughout all the harmonies one always heard in great tones a wondrous melody, while once only, in the middle of the piece, besides that chief song, a tenor voice became prominent in the midst of chords. A study in right-hand triplets. Huneker waxes, "every bar rules over a little harmonic kingdom of its own.
In these repetitions, however, changes of accentuation, fresh modulations, and piquant antitheses, serve to make the composition extremely vivacious and effective. The left hand takes some perilous leaps to delineate its two voices, especially near the end. Asks the right hand to play a legato melody and stacatto accompaniment the latter augmented by the left hand simultaneously a procedure which Robert Collet claims originated with Weber.
The right hand stacatto part is syncopated; odd-numbered beats are represented only by a single left-hand bass note, whereas even-numbered beats are filled with chords and frequently accented.
Occasionally, the thumb is asked to play both a black grace note and the white key that follows it; it is difficult to suppress wrong accents. In the E major midsection, the arpeggiated right hand part changes rhythm from duplets to triplets to quadruplets, and the two hands share a melodic inner voice while the left hand plays bass and the right hand plays rapid figurations; this passage has prompted comparisons with Sigismond Thalberg's favorite compositional trick, the clever simulation of three-handed playing.
