The Transcription - Zlata Chochieva
Zlata Chochieva is one of the most interesting musicians of her generation, with her breathtaking technique and musicality as well as with her choice of repertoire.

Czerny
on: May 20, 2004, 03:56:07 PM
Hi all,

last weekend, I went to see a piano theacher so she could tell me what I should try to study now. While I will not necessarilly follow all her advice, there's one thing I wanted to clear. She said I should try some Czerny, a big book with many scales and arpeggios (so she said), but she couldn't recall the number. What is the Op. of this, will you be able to tell me? She had Op. 599 there, and it was not that.

Thanks
Alex

I'm not sure which one you are talking about exactly, but there is Op.821 for intermediate player. There are 20 Petites Etudes (Little short studies) which is quite good for finger practice. Each number to be practised at least 8 times without interruption, forming in this manner one great study.

A good set of Czerny to do is the set of 160 short 8 bar studies (you don't have to learn all of them!), these start easy and get progressively harder. They're great if you don't want to spend ages trawling through one big study only working on one aspect of technique.

Its 160 eight-bar exercises, opus 821, which is actually exactly the same as the set that A.C. suggested above! :D
