Chopin - Liszt - Hiller

Books | Piano

Publisher: Wiener Urtext
Series: Wiener Primo
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album

This volume presents easy pieces for Piano by great virtuosos. It unites the two greatest, and perhaps best-known, pianists of the 19th century, Frédéric Chopin and Franz Liszt. The technical requirements of these works are very moderate without muting the stylistic characteristics of these two composers. The ability to play an original composition by Liszt in the first years of lessons can be very motivating for the Piano student. Also featured in this collection are works by the virtuoso Ferdinand Hiller, to whom Robert Schumann dedicated his Piano Concerto. As in many of the works by Liszt and Chopin, Hiller's works are frequently reminiscent of folk music. His Irländisches Lied and Fandango, included in the collection, are fine examples of 19th-century 'world music'.

    The 'primo' series is a very good one and this is a very good one within it. Not only that it brings playable pieces from Hiller to broaden the repertoire: 'suddenly' there are playable pieces from Chopin and Liszt where 'other's say: there are non really'. And for expl. the 'very easy' Bourree I (entry piece here) already got a Chopin-feeling to it. This is by the way the only piece I've tried myself (beginner at 14 month that got himself way more notebooks then he can play in the next 2 years or so...). But my piano teacher played many for me (and her) and she also was delighted by these pieces and 'made a pic with her mobile phone camera' of the cover in order to recommend it to studends. The standard of the primo series with short bio's and explanations is the best I've come across so far.
