Chopin's Etudes

Audio will be available later today.

If you say you want a revolution, look no farther than pianist Andre Watts. Before he tackles Rachmaninoff's second piano concerto this hour, Watts plays snippets of that 1800s revolutionary composer, Frederic Chopin. Here are two of Chopin's Etudes, Op. 10, No. 9, and Op. 10, No. 12.
