Composer's Notes  


The wish to explore various aspects of pianism was my starting point for the composition of a cycle of short, strongly contrasting pieces - in the form of a Circle of Fifths (as the work was originally entitled when published in Poland). Besides this sequence of related keys, the Studies alternate between turbulence (fast tempi) and meditation (slow tempi).



Each study is interwoven less or more obviously with a double wave-like melodic line in order to achieve unity throughout the whole work.
