Carl Czerny – In the past months we have been experimenting with the musical examples that Carl Czerny proposes in his treatise on interpretation (op. 500). This work is an essential piece for the study of musical performance in the Classical and Romantic period. Czerny was an outstanding figure and, as a pupil of Beethoven and teacher of Liszt, he conveys in his interpretative vision the characteristics of the transition between two periods. Our experiments are carried out on a fortepiano of the period.
