I sometimes wish that he had not labeled them as “simple”, because that may be interpreted as “childish”. Nothing could be further from the truth. They are masterful short pieces that a delight to play. Brouweg they do get progressively more difficult as you play through the set. I’ve given some attention to the first 12 and dabbled with My teacher told me when I struggled with some of them in the beginning I still play VI and use it for arpeggios for other than amiamipami. The chord progression is nice and makes arpeggio practice interesting.


For me, the hardest was the first part of VIII because as a beginning music student, I didn’t recognize it as a canon and did not understand how the voices should be balanced and which notes belonged to which voice I had only been playing for nine months at that point.

The arpeggio part was not a problem, though. I think my husband hated III! Such a difference from II Sfncillos teacher gave me estufios exercise of brouwed them in order and making the musical and psychological transition from one to the next.

It was like the character actors who turn their back to the audience and then when they turn back, they are another character. It was hard at first to do that. When the sun shines, bask.

Thank you, Erik, for beginning this thread. I’m interested in hearing more comments on which are favorites, which the most technically challenging and why, etc. Misleading too for me who think they’re sort of easy studies, these are a hard and tricky studies but the beautiful harmony seems pay us back.

This study still playable I think with some practicenot like most of Villa Lobos set that I just keep on box to collect dust I haven’t studied the first ten, I begin from 15, 17 and 19 which I liked the most.


For me the 16, 18 and 20 are the hardest part of the set also the most beautiful and interesting IMO. I really can’t execute the trill or slur at such a speed it requires.

The form of this 3 studies also complex compared to others. I find it hard to read too. After that comes up the 11, 13, 14, 17 and 19 which add bits of twist and trick.

After that, I feel the 16, 18 and 20 worth placed at the edge of difficulty.

His fountain pen made me peo of my writing brushes and Chinese writing paper’ – Puyi ‘I don’t write music to be difficult, only to be more like itself’ – Harrison Birtwistle.
