Does someone know which study this is? (attached)

I've played dozens of Czerny studies when I was in the conservatory. All of them are boring (and does no miracle for the technique...), except this one. This is what I can remember. I'd like to know its opus number, study it again and then record it.

This sounds familiar to me. So I guess it belongs to 40 studies or 50 studies (which I played). Good luck!

Opus 740 number 31 is rather fun too. I think Czerny is better than his reputation (although not good enough that I'd want to play those studies in concerts).

I've never felt much for Czerny. I guess many people dislike him for no other reason than being force-fed his etudes as a kid. But some time ago I played through his Toccata and I rather liked that. This is a piece that one could play at a recital, IMO. From what I remember, his Ricordanza variations are quite nice too.

my problem is that the classical period is the one I really don't like (except for Schubert and Beethoven).
so I'm afraid that even the "good Czerny" will not appeal to me.

but I'll take a look at the Toccata also! thanks.

Too bad, you miss out on Mozart and Haydn, then.
No worry, it will come to you when you're older and wiser :P :mrgreen:

do you really think so? I don't think so, but you're not the first one to tell me this.

I only like some few late Mozart, and usually I like Haydn better (his music has more humour).
I usually like every composer. I almost have no restrictions, except for Mozart!

Yeah I really think so. I used to sniff at Mozart, Haydn, and (gasp) even Bach .... The older one gets, the more harks back to the classics. It happens all the time. Don't try to get away from it. They will get you in the end :P

I always enjoyed Bach. I think it was the first composer who I enjoyed very much, much before than I "discovered" Chopin. I should be 11 years old.

but... wait... I can't say I don't like classical period. I love Clementi's sonatinas 8)
