Johann Cramer: 84 Studies For Piano

Books | Piano

Catalogue No: GS81825
Artist: Johann Cramer
Format: Sheet Music | Instrumental Album
The life of Johann Baptist Cramer furnishes a striking illustration of the career of a man who, having exceptionally solid acquirements, has bequeathed to posterity his most valuable knowledge in an enduring form.

Both as a professional musician and as a businessman, he enjoyed uninterrupted prosperity. Born at Mannheim, Germany, on February 24, 1771, of musical German lineage - his father being a distinguished violinist, his grandfather a noted flautist - he was taken the following year to London, where his father settled permanently.

Cramer's Studies for Pianoforte are those of his works wherein the composer yet lives and labors among us. They are still looked upon as indispensable.

      Not many studies are both musical and effective in developing technique, but Cramer manages to create studies which develop technique and make short musical pieces to learn, many of them sounding virtuosic. A must have for those struggling with Hanon and a nice break from Czerny.
