Czerny Op 740 #3, Single Version

Updated: Mar 3

I like the “hunting” motif in the LH and arranged a “one-pager” of #3 that tries to highlight its lightness and charm.

I can get Czerny’s arpeggiation up to around the quarter @90, and mm 1-16 with repeats make a lovely short Adagio (2 sets of 8 on each side) in binary form. It’s notey and rather robust, and Czerny is

Czerny Op 740 #44, 4 Versions

I love the sparkle of Czerny’s note pattern here, and the music remains quite effective with the metronome at 100 rather than his 120. Limiting myself to a one-pager, mm 1-24 are easily shaped into a
