Abstract: Very little is known about Carl Czerny in Russia. He was the author of about thousand musical compositions in various genres, but many of them have not been published, which considerably impoverishes the image of the versatile composer and deprives performers of an interesting repertoire. Czerny is credited with making piano arrangements and editing classical compositions. Furthermore he was the author of fundamental instructional works. As a teacher Czerny strived to reveal individuality in his numerous students from all over the world.
