This Étude pays homage to the great tradition of the Études from Chopin and Debussy to Ligeti and Philip Glass. This piano Étude explores the different layers of colours and shades on the keyboard, and it reveals the paradigm of the simultaneous complexity and simplicity of musical languages. Thus, the purpose of this Étude is not only to provide pianists with practice material for perfecting a particular musical skill, but also to discover further musical imaginations.
