Shortly after the turn of the l8th century Henry Lemoine was one of the most sought-after piano teachers in Paris: in the ensuing years he wrote a piano
method, a harmony textbook, and a large number of small piano pieces. In 1817 he inherited the music publishing firm that his father had founded. The
Etudes enfantines from which this polkaJike piece is taken appeared in 1841.

Johann Friedrich is the only member of the Burgmilller family of musicians who is remembered today; but his father wasoneof thefoundersof the
Lower Rhine Festival, and Schumann declared that the early death (at the age of 26) of his younger brother Norbert was the greatest blow since that of
Schubert. Johann himself settled in Paris, where he became a popular figure.
