Performed by: Dimitri Vassilakis. "The 'etude' was originally a small-scale composition that was mainly didactic in intent and presented the player with a technical problem. Gyorgy Ligeti had this more or less specifically in mind when he wrote the first book of his Etudes pour piano in 1985. However, Ligeti's Etudes open a new chapter in his oeuvre. Allusions of tonality enter his harmonic language; echoes of folk music crop up, recalling Bela Bartok; on the whole, the sound became brighter. In Estudios para piano by Fabian Panisello the generic term 'etude' is restored to its original meaning of a preparatory study."
