Born 1700–1799[edit]

Born 1800–1850[edit]

  • Amédée Méreaux (1802–1874): sixty études, op. 63
  • Henri Herz (1803–1888): Études de l'agilité (Op.179), thirty etudes progressives (Op.119), 24 etudes (Op.151), 24 etudes (Op.152)
  • Friedrich Burgmüller (1806–1874): many études, of which the best known are his 25 Études faciles et progressives, Op. 100, and 12 Études, Op. 105
  • Felix Mendelssohn (1809–1847) three études (Op. 104)
  • Robert Schumann (1810–1856): Studies (Op. 3) and Études (Op. 10) after Paganini's Caprices; and the Symphonic Studies (Op. 13, in three revisions: 1834, 1852, and posthumously 1893).
  • Frédéric Chopin (1810–1849): twenty-four études in two sets of 12 each (Opp. 10 and 25), plus three more (a little easier), for a total of 27.
  • Franz Liszt (1811–1886): set of Transcendental Études, with its two previous versions being Étude en douze exercises and Douze Grandes Études; six études, also with an earlier set, on themes by Niccolò Paganini (among them the famous La Campanella); and six concert études (one set of three, another set of two and Ab Irato which also has an earlier version). In contrast with Chopin's études, which tend to stress a specific aspect of performance difficulty, Liszt's études tend to stress mastery of performance as a whole.
