'Hyperion furnishes excellent recorded sound in a release of truly generous length, and Henry Roche does a splendid job with the liner notes. Enthusiastically recommended' (Fanfare, USA)
The Grande Étude de Concert, Op 126, in E flat, was written in 1856 for the first volume of Lebert and Stark’s great Klavierschule (Piano Tutor) published in Stuttgart. A subsequent volume contained Liszt’s concert studies Gnomenreigen and Waldesrauschen, and here too Brahms’s double-sixths version of Chopin’s F minor Study saw the light of day. Op 126 is a straightforwardly tuneful study in double thirds, and it is surely a remarkable production for a composer in his sixties, however youthful he remained at heart.

La Grande Étude de Concert, Op 126, en mi bémol, fut écrite en 1856 pour le premier volume de la méthode très célèbre L’École de piano (Klavierschule) de Lebert et Stark, publiée à Stuttgart. Un volume ultérieur contiendra les études de concert de Liszt, Gnomenreigen et Waldesrauschen, ainsi qu’une version en doubles sixtes par Brahms de l’Étude en fa mineur de Chopin. L’Opus 126 est une étude au chant très simple en doubles tierces, production tout à fait remarquable pour un compositeur de plus de soixante ans mais au cœur éternellement jeune.

Die Grande Étude de Concert, op. 126, in Es-Dur, die 1856 für den ersten Band der großen Klavierschule von Lebert und Stark (in Stuttgart erschienen) entstand. In späteren Bänden erschienen Liszts Konzertetüden Gnomenreigen und Waldesrauschen und auch Chopins f-Moll Etüde in der Brahmsschen Fassung in Sexten. Op. 126 ist eine ungekünstelte, melodiöse Etüde in Terzen und ein bemerkenswertes Werk für einen 62-jährigen Komponisten, wie jung er auch im Geiste geblieben sein mag.
