The first decades of the nineteenth century mark a true watershed in the history of the piano. Like the Italian violinist Niccolò Paganini, virtuoso pianists such as Friedrich Kalkbrenner, Johann Nepomuk Hummel, Ignaz Moscheles, Franz Liszt, Clara Schumann, and of course Frédéric Chopin constantly strove - as both performers and composers - to push back the limits of their instrument. An instrument which by this time had little in common with the fortepiano of the eighteenth century! The creation of a one-piece metal frame and of longer, tougher strings, the invention of the repetition or double escapement system are among the many innovations which made the instrument a veritable laboratory of sonorities and digital feats. This technical revolution and the new challenges it threw upentailed the need to train the performer's hand by means of specific exercises.The genre of the étude was then at its apogee, and even before the publication of Chopin's op.10 in 1833 collections of études by Johann Baptist Cramer, Carl Czerny and Ignaz Moscheles had already been issued, the last-named presenting the particularity of being concert études intended for public performance and not exercises for private use. In dedicating his op.10 to the virtuoso Franz Liszt, of whom Chopin said that he would have liked to steal the way he interpreted his études, the Polish composer was also clearly placing himself in this register.
