More MP3's of Nikolai Lugansky

Many of Chopin's Etudes have been traditionally associated with particular words or images.

I once read a review in which the critic Adrian Jack wrote, "[Lugansky] runs up and down those treacherous chromatic scales in the second study of Opus 10 like a squirrel on a tree trunk." 

Now I think of this work as being The Squirrel Etude.  The left hand accompaniment reminds me of acorns popping and bouncing everywhere.

Perhaps you would also enjoy looking at an amusing website about SQUIRREL FISHING .
