Frédéric François Chopin (1810 – 1849) was a Polish composer and virtuoso pianist of the Romantic era who wrote primarily for solo piano. He has maintained worldwide renown as a leading musician of his era, one whose "poetic genius was based on a professional technique that was without equal in his generation."

The Op. 10 Études were composed in the period 1829-1832 and dedicated to Franz Liszt. This Op. 25 collection bears a dedication to Liszt's mistress, Countess Marie d'Agoult, a writer who used the pseudonym Daniel Stern. One reason Chopin attempted to capture Liszt's sympathies with the dedications had to do with the performance design of the pieces in the two sets: each was written to highlight some facet of pianism. For example, in the Op. 25 collection, No. 2, in F minor, is a study in cross rhythms, while No. 10, in B minor, is a study in legato octaves.

The 11th entry here, in A minor, is the famous "Winter Wind" Etude. Its proud theme evokes a wintry scene, with the busy right hand providing swirls of notes that seem to incarnate an angry wind. The last item in the set, in C minor, is a study in arpeggios. The mood is somber and agitated, and there is resemblance throughout to the first étude of the Op. 10 set.

Although originally composed for solo piano, I created this Interpretation of the "Winter Wind Étude" in A Minor (Op. 25 No. 11) for String Quartet (2 Violins, Viola & Cello).
