Cornelius Gurlitt was one of the later nineteenth century's most prodigious providers of well-graded piano music. The pieces in Opus 82 are important for development of technic, independence of the hands, and the playing of passagework for the young pianist. The pieces are all short and most use intervals no larger than a fifth. These excellent studies may be recommended for sight reading and transposition. Performance notes and impeccable editing by Gail Lew make these volumes indispensable for every piano student.
