From 1814 to 1823 he was well known as a brilliant performer and a successful teacher in London, and then settled in Paris, dying at Enghien, near there, in 1849. As a teacher Kalkbrenner developed a piano playing technique that kept the musician's strength in the fingers and hands, instead of the forearm. This technique was used by his student Camille-Marie Stamaty, who taught it to his student, Camille Saint-Saëns. He became a member of the Paris piano-manufacturing firm of Pleyel & Co., and made a fortune by his business and his art combined. His numerous compositions are less remembered now than his instruction-book, with studies, which has long been popular among pianists. Chopin's first piano concerto is dedicated to Kalkbrenner.
