Burgmüller – 18 Characteristic Studies, opus 109

The sheet music of Burgmüller’s opus 109, 18 Characteristic Studies, has been published as Piano Street Editions together with recordings by Henrik Sandback.
This collection may be used as a sequel to the studies opus 100.
Each study challenges the player with a specific technical problem, inseparable from the main idea of the composition.
Like the earlier pieces, the Characteristic Studies are not concerned solely with technique – Burgmüller’s melodious and charming works always have a distinct musical appeal, and are also studies of character and mood.

    Thanks for these beautifully-executed pieces. I’ve had these Burgmueller books for some time, but have never played from them or really looked at them— that is going to change. Because of you, I now have an idea of what they have to offer— thanks!

    (And, where else would one hear these?)
