Carl Czerny, Tableaux mèlodiques 0p.667
MEADOWS SCHOOL OF THE ARTS
Joel Estes Tate Endowed Chair in Piano
In the world of today there is a great number of pianists who can claim that they play the complete works of Bach, Beethoven, Schumann, Chopin, Liszt ,Debussy, Ravel....and a long etcétera.
I don't know but I think is very unlikely that there is a pianist who plays the complete works of Czerny. His output is so monstrously big. So, this delicate recording of the by Francesca Cardone comes to me as a beautiful Discovery.
We pianists have played ( in my case even hated) the zerny studies as our first contact with the keyboard when our hands were still small and needed to develop strenght and speed.
This record is like finding another Czerny. With melodic sense, undeniable good taste and deep knowledge of the piano. ( It so often reminds me of Mendelssohn...)
Is like finding in a case a collection of Little Jewels and put them in display in an storewindow, so you can choose the ones you like best. Brava, bravissima Francesca Cardone. You have done a superb work.
