BURGMÜLLER, Friedrich

Johann Friedrich Franz Burgmüller was born in 1806, Regensburg Germany. He was the son of Johann August Franz Burgmüller (German organist and conductor 1766-1824) and elder brother of Norbert Burgmüller (German composer and pianist 1810-1836). Friedrich studied with Ludwig Spohr (1784-1859) and Moritz Hauptmann (1792-1868). After years of studies with Spohr and Hauptmann, Friedrich settled in Paris (until his death in 1874), and he adopted Parisian music. Friedrich Burgmüller wrote numerous pieces of salon music for piano and published several albums of piano studies that have become standard works.

Burgmüller's piano music is mainly intended for juvenile performers, and his opus 68, 76, 97, 100, and 105 etudes are widely used for piano teaching today. Etudes in opus 100, Twenty-Five Easy and Progressive Studies for Pianoforte, are used for piano lessons especially for juvenile learners with small hands because of the following reasons:

·There are no octave fingerings
·The widest range (interval) is the seventh
·Each piece has an unique title, and the pieces are pleasant (joyful)

Zen-On Publishers' Burgmüller Op. 100 Twenty-Five Etuden (published in Japan) has been used for piano lessons by Yamaha method. After completing a two-year primary course (age 4-6) and a two-year secondary course (age 6-8) of basic musicianship, Yamaha students (age 8-10) usually start taking individual lessons with this etude book.
