Description

Volume 5 of the Urtext Primo series shows that great virtuosos were also able to write easy pieces. It brings together perhaps the two best-known keyboard personalities of the 19th century: Frédéric Chopin und Franz Liszt. Technically undemanding, the pieces compiled here nevertheless have all the flavour of the harmony and pianistic texture so typical for these two composers. And playing a ‘real Liszt’ can do much to increase a beginning student’s motivation. The third composer of this volume is Ferdinand Hiller, also a famous 19th century piano virtuoso to whom none less than Robert Schumann had dedicated his piano concerto. As in some works by Liszt and Chopin, Hiller’s compositions also frequently contain echoes of folk music, for example his Irländisches Lied (Irish Song) or his Fandango. • 33 easy original piano works by Chopin, Liszt and Hiller with a teaching and learning commentary in German and English • Musically and technically varied repertoire • Relativel

Reviews

Here are the fourth and fifth volumes in this excellent series edited by Nils Franke where two well-known composers are combined with one whose music is less frequently heard and performed. Piano Journal Issue 106 2015, p.34 (Nadia Lasserson)

This is an extremely useful volume for students who have just graduated from the 'beginner tutor' Stage and are ready for musically satisfying material that will inspire their progress. (…) International Piano Jan-Feb 2016, p. 81 (Murray McLachlan)

This is a treasure trove that I can wholeheartedly recommend. (…) Quite apart from the good choice of repertoire, the value of these books is the sense of progress - often lost at this stage - and the achievement of being able to play the more difficult pieces after a certain length of time. Piano Professional Issue 40 Spring 2016, p. 34 (Bronwen Brindley)

Nils Franke's first four volumes in this series have been a huge success, and with the welcome launch of this fifth volume, pianists and teachers will be very pleased to find pieces that they may not encounter very often. (…) These are excellent collections of repertoire, in an Urtext edition, selected for the early to middle grades by concert pianist, teacher and EPTA member, Nils Franke. Piano Professional Issue 40 Spring 2016, p. 29 (Melvyn Cooper)
