Heller,Hummel Etudes

Post by Rach3 » Fri May 03, 2019 5:33 pm

The Stephen Heller Op.45 " Melodious Studies" a nice change of pace from the Chopin Etudes and Liszt TE’s. Several great encores here, neglected, eg. # 15, #21, Bach-inspired # 22. #11,#23, # 25 ( I’m sure among others ) deceptively dangerous as well as # 7, # 10. The pianist Jan Vermeulen's recording PLUS scores here :

A couple YT comments suggest these were played too fast by Vermeulen ?!

While you’re in the mood , also recommend the late Mary Louise Boehm’s Hummel Etudes Op.125 on Vox ,well worth the time :
