Erster Wiener Lehrmeister im Pianofortespiel, Op. 599, Nos. 41 – 60

Two posts ago, I began my quest. My quest to play all 100 exercises in Carl Czerny’s book of beginner piano études, Erster Wiener Lehrmeister im Pianofortespiel. What is a piano étude? Well, my previous post explains this and much less (that is to say, it does not explain much more than this), and I strongly suggest you start from the very beginning if you are trying to learn piano.

Actually, if you are trying to learn piano, I strongly suggest you do not try Czerny’s piano exercises at all. The learning curve is too steep, and without a proper piano teacher, your form and posture will be all incorrect. I do not count as a proper piano teacher because my form and posture is already incorrect and its incorrectness is already incorrigible.

This post, we’ll talk about posture, technique, and another guy, Hanon, ‘s exercises. That’s improper grammar and punctuation, but I want to pronounce ‘Hanon’ with pauses at each end, and ‘s exercises together as one word, because English is stupid and French liaisons sound really, really good. Unlike my performances of the following exercises.

Erster Wiener Lehrmeister im Pianofortespiel, Op. 599, Nos. 21 – 40

Last post, I announced my great expedition to record all 100 exercises from Carl Czerny’s book of études, Erster Wiener Lehrmeister im Pianofortespiel (no, don’t ask me how to pronounce that).

This Musical Monday, you will learn about accidentals and key signatures, the qualities of an étude, and of the history behind this collection.

But without further ado, let us begin with post two (hey, that was a rhyming couplet!).

These rhymes I’ll continue, and ah-ah-ah-achooo»

Apologies

So, I was at Mushy’s house today, we did history for a lot of the day so he didn’t have any time to make a post. However, we will give you a short fact about Beethoven.

His fame as a pianist in Vienna gained in many influential friends such as Prince Lichnovisky, Prince Lobkowitz and Count Razumovsky.

Now, I’m sure everybody who reads this post will remember 3 of his best friends. :D
