Well, if you're dying to learn it then give it a go. It's actually not that difficult, the only part I had a bit of dificulty was the bits with the 2/3 cross rhythm but at a faster tempo, you have to be careful to keep it in time.

for me...
I think 10n12?---the only one which I finished more than just a page. (I learned the first 3 lines of the 2nd page too) but it bored me....

Lol, it would have to be 10-6 if you're talking only about notes...

What about 25/9? I just sightread the first eight or so bars (slowly) and it doesn't seem too hard...

The "easiest", I'd say, is either Op. 25 No 1 or 2.

Why not, NG?

I feel that 25/1 is the easiest too, because the general technique of voicing and tone is not as taxing as say, octaves.

oh! I forgot that that F-minor one... I wouldn't say that it's hard, the melody is just way too bizarre to memorize. (at least compare to the other chopets), personally,I think the A-flat major one in the set is pretty simple...if you have the touch to bring out the chords, I suppose.


and 10n6 does have some nasty 10ths or 10.5th .But if Chopin allows me to skip the lower notes, I might call it somewhat easy...

I'm going to try 25/9, and if i give up, 10/6. If that fails as well, i'm putting the études back on the shelf. Any tips for 25/9? and what is the objective of it?
