About Burgmüller Complete Etudes…

Here you can find a review (in Italian version) about the latest album of the Japanese pianist Aki Kuroda , entirely dedicated to Burgmüller complete etudes, published on Brescia Oggi.

Gli studi scritti da Burgmüller

Un’altra bellissima operazione proposta da Limen. Per la quale occorre anzitutto sapere chi era Johann Friedrich Franz Burgmüller, compositore tedesco che fu a Parigi fin dal 1832.
E, se scrisse un numero impressionante di brani, uno dei suoi maggiori meriti è proprio quello di aver scritto una tale serie di studi per pianoforte tali da costituire una “scuola” che qui viene proposta in modo completo dalla brava artista giapponese, che ha registrato i 25 Studi facili e progressivi op. 100 e poi i 18 Studi di genere che sono il seguito.
Nel secondo CD gli Studi Brillanti e Melodici op. 105, ma anche le Fantasie sull’Ernani e su Giselle.
