• This set of virtuoso etudes by one of today's top pianists was written over a span of 25 years, and includes both original character pieces and also works that incorporate elements of or refer back to works by well-known composers.
• "More than half of this collection has been previously available, circulating among pianists and interested parties for a number of years. However, previous incarnations of some of the earlier etudes are now obsolete, since I have made a significant number of changes and improvements." (Marc-Andre Hamelin)
• Mr Hamelin was born on September 5th, 1961, in Montreal, Québec, Canada.
