Etudes with Technique, Book 5
Helen Marlais with Suzanne Torkelson
Most of the 28 etudes written by illustrious teacher-pianists (Gurlitt, Le Couppey, TÃ¼rk, Beyer, Streabbog, Czerny) are two pages long. The selections reinforce technical concepts, but they are not just “exercises”? but delightful pieces that can be programmed for recital or performance. Unit 1 focuses on Trills; Unit 2-Crossovers; Unit 3-Double Notes; Unit 4-Blocked and Broken Chords; and Unit 5-Waltz Bass.
