Group-mates all said these etudes are boring but I quite like them. Boring stuff, by TOTO, must be good. It’s kind of like long distance running it’s boring but there’s exactly where you can find the joy.
Too bad there isn’t demo CD for it. This is book 1 of 4, even for book 4 this is still considered elementary stuff so I guess there is no market for a CD.
Percy Such (b. 1878), English cellist, perhaps should have made recording using “Edison Disc” at the turn of the century.
Luckily I have this CD by Janos Starker for some pretty hard (to me) etudes.
