Czerny - Practical Method for Beginners, Op. 599, Piano
Pedagogical in nature, these editions offer insightful interpretive suggestions, pertinent fingering, and historical and stylistic commentary. Carl Czerny's (1791-1857) popular set of piano exercises is now available in an easy-to-read edition containing extensive performance and historical notes that guide teachers and students in the techniques that can be gleaned from each exercise. Although designed to improve technique, the pieces may be thought of as real literature rather than mechanical etudes.
