    I recently bought Czerny Finger Exercises, Opus 802, for my daughters who are between grade 3 and 4, depending on who determines the different grades, and they were unable to smoothly play the first exercise. Yet they are currently playing grade 3 scales. These exercises are simply the best exercises...

    ever written for the development of the fingers. Before I started play these exercises, I used to sing the praises of Hanon, but Hanon is very basic in comparison to Czerny's Opus 802. It must have been a joy to be a pupil of Czerny!

    Czerny's op. 802 is very interesting and very useful for fingers. It is basic for pianists, harpsichordists and organists. Everyone should play the exercices with appropriate touch of his own instrument (keyboard, piano, harpsichord, organ).
