Limen music & arts proposes to the audience the complete collection of the Etudes for piano Op. 100, 105 and 109 composed by J. F. F. Burgmüller, for the first time available in video, interpreted by great musician, worldwide appreciated as a performer, but also as a teacher: Aki Kuroda.

A wonderful production, not only for the expressive melody lines and the marvellous images evoked by the intensive and reliable executions of this extraordinary Japanese pianist, but also for the educational value linked to this work.
Burgmuller was born as a piano teacher, and his studies have always been used in schools around the world for the education, not only of young composers, but of all age groups.
In addition to the famous three etudes, this album contains two other works by Burgmüller: Fantaisie Brillante Op. 92, based on the opera Ernani by Italian composer Giuseppe Verdi, and Souvenir de Ratisbonne Op.67, a light and beautiful waltz used in Adolphe-Charles Adam’s famous ballet Giselle.

Aki Kuroda presents Burgmüller Complete Études

Good morning, I’m Aki Kuroda.
I’m glad to announce you the release of my new album (CD+DVD) for Limen Music in Milano: Burgmüller Complete Études – 25, 18 and 12 Études.
Burgmüller is a composer very well-known to all the children who train in piano-playing.
In Japan in the Seventies, when I was young, it was fashionable to teach piano to the children.
It’s no exaggeration to say that at that time in Japan, in the homes, in the neighborhoods, in the classrooms of the primary schools, these Burgmüller’s  pieces were everywhere to be heard.
Now that I’m among the parents, remembering these lovely pieces as the childhood memories, I was struck by their beauty and by the musical essences that comprise them.
Friedrich Burgmüller was born in Germany where he lived until he was 26, and then moved to Paris where he wrote many piano composition for the Salon Parisien and for the ballet.
He was also very appreciated piano teacher.
Every Etudes is reach in accurately conceived piano techniquest, that enable the learning of the many musical “rubato”, with the appropriate expressions and the right singing quanties.
When I was recording them, I tried to play as if I were at the Salon Parisien, paying close attention to the required techniques and respecting the tempo marking prescribed by the author.
Especially 12 Etudes are very virtuosic. Please, look at the movements of the fingers, through the images of the DVD. I hope that the music abd the pictures are to your liking.
Have a good time!
