Question: I am working on Roland Dyens 20 Letters, letter #2. The melody is all stems down played with the thumb. Give me an exercise to train individual fingers and thumb to have separate volume as the different voices emerge.

In this little video I go through an exercise that I found very useful over the years for teaching and for myself! It exercises giving different weight to each finger in a systematic approach. It is a very simple exercise but quite a challenge to do well!
