The third volume of the Godowsky Collection is primarily devoted to one of Godowskyas most remarkable and controversial projects, the virtuosic studies he based on the Atudes from FrA(c)deric Chopinas Opp. 10 and 25. Praised and reviled in equal measure when they were first performed and published (1894a1914), these astudiesa are both elaborate and respectful commentaries on Chopinas genius by a great admirer and tests of the outer limits of piano technique. The volume is rounded out with the 1899 concert rrangement of Chopinas Rondo, Op. 16 and six waltzes drawn from Op. 18, Op. 64 and Op. 70. As with the previous volumes, the fascinating and extensive notes and a biography are by noted Godowsky scholar, Dr. Millan Sachania.
