Helene de Montgerout – the piano pioneer

Described as “The link between Mozart and Chopin” – Helene de Montgeroult (1764-1836) was one of the greatest figures in the piano world, as a pianist, composer and celebred pedagogue.
The composer who was saved from the Guillotine by her artistry , and was the first woman professor at the Paris Conservatoire , contributed immensely to the piano technique and sound . Two decades preceding Chopin’s etudes she produced her celebrated piano method, the three-volume “Cours complet pour l’enseignement du forte piano” consisting 114 etudes . Here she focuses on fingerings, hand positions, and other techniques that produce a sustained cantabile or singing sound similar to that of the voice or a bowed string instrument. Many etudes are beautiful concert pieces. Some examples from her etudes will be presented.

Pieces that will be performed fully:
Sonata No. 3 in F sharp Minor
Fantasy in G minor
