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.

Tiempo’s Revolutionary Thirds Equals Three?

One plus one equals three?
It’s a word most of us are familiar with, but sometimes difficult to grasp.
Synergies arise when the combination of energies, resources, talents and efforts add up to more than the sum of their parts.
The idea of combining challenging principles in the Études of Chopin (Opp. 10 and 25) was tested at an early stage by Leopold Godowsky in his 48 Studies on Chopin´s Études (and recorded by Marc-André Hamelin in 2000).

This is Tiempo’s own two Chopin études mix-arrangement of the ”Revolutionary” Op. 10/12 and the ”Thirds” Op. 25/6.

Heralded by critics and fellow musicians as one of the outstanding pianists of his generation, Argentine-Venezuelan pianist Sergio Tiempo has quickly risen to international prominence since his debut in 1986 at age 14 as part of the “Great Pianists” series at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw.
He now appears regularly in recitals and with orchestras in the great concert halls of Europe, North America, South America and Japan.
