Description: Czerny was Beethoven’s student and, later, close friend and collaborator and did many transcriptions of his master’s scores. The symphony transcriptions appeared all at once in a publication of 1829 and will be a must-have for collectors of the genre. A modern Steinway D is used. Vicky Yannoula, George-Emmanuel Lazaridis (piano duet).
