Here is my second installment (much delayed) in a series about unjustly neglected piano repertoire. I've made it somewhat of a mission in my concert life to bring works to light which are, for whatever reason, not heard enough or are completely unknown to the majority of pianists and concert-goers.

This little gem is one such piece: Sternberg's Etude in C, Opus 103 No. 3

Constantin von Sternberg (1852-1924) was a pianist of wonderful ability and a composer of some interesting works, chief among them this little etude.

Lucky for us, along with the score, we have this incredible recorded performance by Josef Hofmann. Buckle your seatbelts!
