Aloys Schmitt (1 788-1866) was a respected pianist and eminent teacher of his day. While he composed operas, oratorios, and church music, his greatest contributions were his works for piano, specifically his methods and studies. Preparatory Exercises, Op. 16, is the culmination of Schmitt's dedication as a pianist and his years of experience working toward expanding the technical abilities of his students. This collection of exercises still enjoys worldwide popularity with teachers who share Schmitt's desire to provide their students with the opportunity to enhance their skills and further their study.

Willard A. Palmer, one of Alfred's most prolific editors and a revered composer in his own right, brings his pedagogical expertise and experience from years of teaching to this new edition of Schmitt's Preparatory Exercises. In addition to Schmitt's exercises, which emphasize independence of fingers, thumb flexibility and the practice of scales and arpeggios, an appendix is included, written by the prominent German music educator A. Knecht. This combination of talented resources has made Alfred's edition of Schmitt's Preparatory Exercises a truly complete volume for anyone who aspires to become a virtuoso performer.

Paul Klee (1879-1940), a Swiss modernist painter, was one of the most inventive and influential artists of the 20th century. An accomplished violinist, Klee was often concerned with musical equivalents of line and color, and many of his works have a musical derivation. These derivations could be seen as manifestations of fleeting recollections of musical moments. As may often be the case with music preparatory exercises, Klee's Vorhaben could be viewed to contain basic elements that are representative of youthful, fundamental expressions.
