Kopprasch Project continued, No. 40

Here’s the next etude in the Kopprasch series. I’ve tweaked my video settings, which should hopefully remove the border that’s been appearing around recent uploads.  This study really works flexibility and articulation in the middle register with a combination of repeated staccato and medium to wide skips. The tempo range provided in my edition is dotted-quarter=116-152, and for this recording the tempo is around dotted-quarter=132. Try not to over-tongue the staccatos, even in forte passages, at it just makes everything sound more labored.  I like using T13 for the final repeated low Cs.
