Known as a piano teacher, with whose works almost every piano pupil should be familiar, and possibly also as a pupil of Beethoven, Carl Czerny enjoys practically no fame as a composer today. The composing maniac (around about 800 published works) acquired a great reputation (and wealth) from piano teaching and writing educational works for the piano, from compositions the market expected from him and from which he earned a lot of money.
Czerny composed in the tradition of Haydn and Beethoven. Echoes of Mendelssohn can be discerned as well as a romantic style full of drama and profundity of expression. The quartets have only been passed down as manuscripts from Czerny’s estate, which can be found in the archives of the Society of Friends of Music in Vienna.
