Mazas Op. 36 edition titles?

May 17, 2005 at 08:19 PM · My teacher has suggested that I check out the Mazas etudes. I'm finding two different titles, both identified as Op. 36 - "Etudes Speciales" and "75 Progressive and Melodious Studies." Does anyone know if these include the same exercises? And is any particular edition/editor preferable? Many thanks!

Someone might want to confirm this though, but I'd say they're the same. If you can look through them, do so and you should see that they'd be the same.

The first is thirty special studies, the second 27 special studies and the third is 18 Artists studies. I can imagine that the artists studies would be more like pieces in themselves
