Title: Etude, Op. 10 no. 11
Chopin wrote his Études for his students, and they can therefore be categorized by their pedagogical function. But they are more than just that: they comprise a system of learning that is not only utilitarian, but also artful. In addition to becoming a standard of piano pedagogy, the Études became concert pieces: the piano as an instrument had changed quite a bit over Chopin's life, and these works not only represent a new style of playing that reflects the new aspects of the instrument, but they also provide an encapsulation of Chopin's unique style. Étude no. 11, in E-flat major, is a technical study. sometimes nicknamed Arpeggio-Study or Guitar-Study. Throughout, the hands are required to stretch intervals as large as compound fifths, executing complex arpeggios. The piece is also notable for its chromatic harmonies, daring at the time, and enharmonic shifts.
