Chopin Example - "Wrong Note Etude"

Frédéric Chopin / Plylar        
 Etude in E minor, Op. 25, No. 5 
"Wrong Note Etude"

This is a small excerpt from the "Wrong Note Etude", (not its official name, but very appropriate). What I like about this particular use of the "low-A" is that it is very subtle and approachable due to the descending line. There are other uses of this pitch in the etude; you can see more of the work by visiting David's website. It's been really enjoyable putting this piece together in rehearsals though due to time constraints, we won't be doing it at tomorrow's concert. Will have to wait until we get to Colorado for its debut!

More examples to come...
