Claude Debussy's 12 Études were composed in 1915, in memory of Frederic Chopin. He admits that these are extremely difficult to play, and describes them as "a warning to pianists not to take up the musical profession unless they have remarkable hands." Includes: Étude 1 (5 fingers, "after Monsieur Czerny) * Étude 2 (thirds) * Étude 3 (fourths) * Étude 4 (sixths) * Étude 5 (octaves) * Étude 6 (eight fingers) * Étude 7 (chromatic degrees) * Étude 8 (ornaments) * Étude 9 (repeated notes) * Étude 10 (opposing sonorities) * Étude 11 (composite arpeggios) * Étude 12 (chords).
