In the Chinese market, there are already CD releases with Xiaona Zhou .
The 12 Etudes for Piano by Claude Debussy are the most important collection of its kind in the time after Chopin and Liszt. Absolute mastery of technical problems of piano playing are essential to approach these works. Moreover, these studies are likely to form the climax of the piano works of Debussy and the so-called French impressionism. While there are studies for thirds, sixths or octaves just like Chopin, but the emphasis in Debussy's works lies in the development of the compositional style. The most extensive studies impress with their downright fantastic variability, the richness of their associations, as well as the championship to create new structures. György Ligeti, the famous composer of the 21th century, has been linked to the conscious Debussy cycle with his Etudes.
