The Ludwig van Beethoven Tradition

Ludwig van Beethoven, who represents the inception of modern pianism, may be considered the starting point from which most pianists in history can trace their pianistic lineages. His student Carl Czerny taught some of the greatest pedagogues of the nineteenth century, including Franz Liszt, Theodor Leschetizky, Sigismond Thalberg, Theodor Kullak and Anton Door.
