About the Authors

Rolf Koenen (Fingering)

As a pupil, Prof. Rolf Koenen, born in 1946 in Duisburg, had already had contact with Ewald Zimmermann, the first editor at the young publishing house. He studied the piano at the Folkwangschule in Essen with Detlef Kraus, with Ludwig Hoffmann in Munich and with Maria Tipo in Florence.

He gave concerts in a permanent duo partnership with Hansjörg Schellenberger, who was later to become the solo oboe player with the Berlin Philharmonic, and made several recordings with the Deutsche Grammophon-Gesellschaft, with Denon and Sony. Other chamber music partners included András Adorján, Stefan Dohr, Wolfgang Schulz, Claes H. Ahnsjö. Following a teaching position in Munich, Rolf Koenen was appointed as a professor at the Berlin University of the Arts in 1982.

But, be that as it may, this is an historically important publication and provides some good alternative material for older students.

The publicity goes on say that as he was not primarily a virtuoso, so these works are also suitable for amateurs. Nonprofessional pianists will certainly enjoy and welcome these compositions to the repertoire, and they deserve to have due recognition. They are ideal for both perfoming and teaching purposes and will appeal to many.
