“What people will find,” says author Barbara Ehrlich, “is that today’s piano music scene is richer than they think. Beyond the wasteland of throwaway pop music lies a wealth of musical riches easily found if you know where to search.”
This classical music guide provides quick, detailed information about what contemporaries of Chopin thought of his musicianship and quotes from the great composer himself. The article shows readers what to expect when playing the Etudes and the influence of Chopin’s technique on future great works of music. Readers can view a quick comparison of Chopin’s technical exercises to those of other well-known piano technicians such as Czerny and Cramer.
“My purpose in writing the guide to Chopin was to give both young piano students and busy adult students a comprehensive and concise introduction to the world of Chopin and his technique. The study of Chopin is always included in any serious study of the piano,” comments Ehrlich.
Chopin’s influence pianistically and harmonically spans two centuries from Liszt to Scriabin and Rachmaninoff, to Debussy, Granados, and Szymanowsky. This easy guide shows what Chopin has to offer and provides detailed profiles of some of his greatest Etudes with brief recommendations in technique for pianists considering the study of each Etude.
