A Perfect Piece for Piano Students

Arabesque or L’Arabesque is an etude from Friedrich Burgmuller’s "25 Études faciles et progressives" (25 Easy and Progressive Studies) for early intermediate students. It is part of a three book collection that later became Burgmuller’s most popular work.

Written in 1852, the term arabesque was used by romantic era composers to describe their ideas of Arabic music, which was usually highly embellished. Perhaps the most famous example of this style of piano composition is Claude Debussy’s Deux Arabesques.

Upon initial inspection of the song, we can see there are no sharps or flats in the key signature. This means we are either in the key of C major or A minor. We can then look to the first and last chords, which are both A minor. From this we deduce the piece is in the key of A minor. It is important to then look at the dynamics, which are marked about every four measures. We see the familiar p for piano (soft), mf for mezzo forte (moderately loud) and f for forte (loud). The dynamic marking that may be less familiar here is sfz for sforzando. This is the indication to make a strong, sudden accent on a note or chord. We could consider this a marking for both dynamics and articulation.

Remember to start slow, especially on a piece with fast 16th notes like this one. A composition like this one can be overwhelming at first. If you feel like you are not learning effectively, use Learn Mode in Piano Marvel to guide you through step by step. This way, you can get the most out of your practice time.
