Czerny: Introduzione e Rondo Brillant in B – Flat Major, Op. 233
The Viennese-born Carl Czerny, student and confidant of Beethoven and teacher of Liszt, found fame in his native city by writing a series of fashionable pieces, among which numbered fantasies and potpourris as well as a series of important pedagogic studies. His large-scale pianistic works are of great interest and include the First Piano Concerto, in D minor, which expertly balances foreboding, pastoral richness and exuberant brio, a bravura Introduzione e Rondo Brillant and a vivacious salute to Weber’s Euryanthe.
