These 51 exercises "for the Pianoforte" were published in 1893 by Brahms. Ever since they have been regarded as key exercises, custom made for developing the smooth pianistic technique that is an essential requirement for a successful performance of Brahms' and others piano works. For many pianists these intelligent exercises have become an indispensable part of their daily routine. In addition to the well-known exercises, there is an appendix with a further 30 exercises few of which have been published before. This volume in the Wiener Urtext Edition therefore represents a significant addition to the canon of exercises for the more ambitious pianist. Peter Rogenkamp's notes supply information and suggestions for the most beneficial use of the studies in teaching and daily practice.
