11. Études op. 25, No. 11 in A minor
This stormy study, known as the 'Winter Wind' étude is an exercise in sheer endurance, thanks to its fiendishly difficult notes. Even Lang Lang himself found it tricky as a child: "I always found ‘Winter Wind’ extremely difficult and though I worked at it a lot it was always difficult to ‘get’," he said.
