Etude en douze exercises

By Franz Liszt

Chamber piano - SMP Level 10 (Advanced)
Etude en douze exercises. Composed by Franz Liszt (1811-1886). Edited by Christian Ubber. Romantic. Full score. With Standard notation. 68 pages. Wiener Urtext/Vienna Urtext #UT050232. Published by Wiener Urtext/Vienna Urtext (PR.UT050232).

Item Number: PR.UT050232

ISBN 978-3-85055-616-3.

This collection of etudes dated 1826 represents Franz Liszt's most important early work, but it is also much more: it is the precursor version of the Etudes d'execution transcendante (UT 50233), allowing us very informative insights into Liszt's development as a pianist and composer. Each etude is dedicated to a special technical problem and permits advanced students (from an intermediate level onwards) an introduction to Liszt's work. At the same time, it proves its worth as an excellent alternative to the more demanding etudes written by Carl Czerny. The present new edition is the first to draw on the French first edition as well as on excerpts of the autograph as its main source. This procedure allowed the correction of a number of errors in the musical text, the articulation and dynamics. The Notes on Interpretation also include background information about young Liszt as a teacher and the use of etudes in his lessons.

  • April 03, 2009 Outstanding Etudes

    Franz Liszt wrote some of the most famous etudes, and definitely the most technically demanding. These twelve etudes are the very first set of etudes he wrote, and these same etudes will go on to become the Transcendental Etudes. These twelve etudes are an excellent start if the pianist is...

    looking to try the Transcendental Etudes in the future. The are excellent pieces that help gain technicality, as well as prepare you for the Transcendental Etudes. They are not as long as those etudes, but they are still technically demanding and are musically excellent to hear. Wiener Urtext is an excellent publishing firm, and the music is very easy to read. Fingering are provided as well as footnotes on interpretation. What is wonderful is that it begins with commentary on Liszt, when these etudes where written and what they help accomplish. It is a wonderful read. It is an excellent edition that I recommend.
