Description: Moschelès and Fétis commissioned these pianist/composers to create one or two etudes each concentrating on what each one thought the most vital elements of refined piano playing. Stress "refined": there is nothing here involving percussive playing or violence of any kind since this was well before anyone thought of the piano as a "percussion instrument". Mordecai Shehori (piano).
