Czerny No. 13
from Op. 599 - Practical Piano Exercises
This is No. 13 from Practical Piano Exercises, Op. 599 by Carl Czerny. Often this Op. 599 is titled in English as "Practical Exercises for Beginners" or "Practical Method for Beginners". However, we titled it as "Practical Piano Exercises" and removed "for Beginners" from the title. Only the exercises from No. 1 through No. 10 of Op. 599 are considered for beginners. After that, they get more advanced.
Please notice that both clefs are in the treble clef.
The fingering numbers on No. 13 are provided only on the 1st note of each line (system) for the right hand and the 1st new chord for the left hand. For the right hand, please stay in the C 5-finger position strictly for the entire exercise. You'll encounter a lot of repeated notes. In classical training oftentimes changing the finger on repeated notes is encouraged. But for this exercise, please use the same finger on the repeated notes. Unlike other exercises (No. 1 - No. 12), this exercise has different phrases in each measure. So, please do not assume that the phrase repeats again like other exercises.
The challenging new thing is happening in No. 13 from Op. 599 with the left hand. Players need to hold the bass note for the entire measure with either finger-4 or finger-5 while playing 2 other notes above the bass note to create I (tonic), V (dominant), & V7 (dominant 7th) chords. Basically, 2 lines (voices) will be played with 1 hand, in this case with the left hand.
