Hello, Mr. Gillock! Hello, Mr. Czerny!
Delightful Piano Pieces for all Occasions - ed. by Elisabeth Haas, Martina Schneider, Karin Strebl, Rosemarie Trzeja and Veronika Weinhandl - illuastrated by Martina Schneider
Carl Czerny (1791-1857) and William Gillock (1917-1993) unfortunately did not have the opportunity to meet each other personally. But in her witty comic strips, Martina Schneider brings the two men together by means of a trans-Atlantic phone call. Both composers exchange brief comments about their masterpieces, musically demanding "little" etudes and studies. Though they each speak their own language, have no fear: it’s all translated! What the 27 "Delightful Piano Pieces for All Occasions" have in common is that they are all ideal both for teaching and recital purposes.
The Keyboard Crocodile, Monster & Their Friends make it fun to play the piano!
