Abstract:
The piano etude is a musical genre that has evolved since the 18th century from a work composed to develop technique into a full-fledged concert piece. The genre has continued to pose a challenge for the composer who attempts to combine the utility of a technical exercise with musical invention equivalent to other genres in the concert repertoire.Falko Steinbach composed his first set of piano etudes, entitled "Figures," 17 Choreographic Etudes, in 2006. This major work is comprised of 17 pieces, which explore all the physical components of successful pianism. These components are outlined in his book A Compendium on Piano Technique. The book also explores psychological disciplines, which can assist the pianist in overcoming technical difficulties, both in practice and performance.This document will consist of an analysis of both "Figures" and A Compendium. It will address the issue of "Figures" as both a didactic work and a work of art in the tradition of the Chopin etudes. It will also discuss how Steinbach synthesizes aspects of both physiological and mental learning disciplines to create a technical approach to the piano that directly impacts both sound and movement.
