The End of an Era: Keith Jarrett's Return to his Roots
Keith Jarrett, one of the greatest musicians and profilistic pianists of our time, has recently announced that he will no longer be able to hold up his career as a performer. Now 75, he suffered a pair of draining strokes two years ago that left his left side paralyzed and resulting in an unability to play the piano.

I started the Hanon exercises about a month and half ago (give or take a bit). I just went into a music store and saw it sitting there. I thought it would be good practice.

They start out not-so-complicated but get to some pretty interesting/challenging exercises. As for the history on Hanon and Chang, I don't know anything about that. I'd recommend Google ;)
