Burgmüller: 25 Easy & Progressive Studies Op.100

J.F.F.Burgmüller (1806-1875) was a popular pianist based in Paris who improvised hundreds of Salon Pieces as well as composing a wide range of instrumental music.

He is best known today for his Piano Exercises, notable the 25 Easy and Progressive Studies Op.100. Although called “studies”, and very beneficial for piano playing technique, these are actually very attractive pieces which remain favourites with students of all ages.

I have recorded all 25 of these popular pieces as a resource to help students, and am making the recordings publicly available here so that other players and teachers can have a listen and freely download.


Individual tracks can be freely downloaded from my SoundCloud page here.

I hope you find these recordings useful and perhaps feel inspired to play these very enjoyable classics for yourself. There are many excellent editions of the music; for this recording I used the ABRSM edition:

  1. Thank you. I’m making my way slowly through Burgmüller: 25 Easy & Progressive Studies Op.100 – and it’s very helpful to have a nice interpretation to listen to during the day before I get to practice the songs at night.

  2. I love these. They stand so well individually as proper pieces rather than just studies. Really good for musicality as well as technique.
