How interesting. It sounds like the start of a fascinating story. Please share what you glean.

It just got delivered! After reading "Clara Schumann: The Artist and the Woman", this gives me a strange feeling of chills as I look through it. I feel like I know so much about this man, a lot of it not good, LOL. He was a fantastic pedagogue, but a terrible human being. Her early life has always been of great interest to me, TA&TW is such an excellent biography. I'll check in again with my thoughts on this book.

I was also considering getting his piano studies. Has anyone tried them?

His studies are great: very short and doable. Out of print. If you find an old copy, for heaven's sake, buy it. I lost mine in a move, or in a loan to a student.

If you can't find a print copy, the studies are available on IMSLP:

Wieck: Studies

Those exercises make scales or Hanon look like fascinating musical masterpieces.

This prints out extremely well on regular printer paper, I was surprised! I almost always have odd margin issues. 👍😊
