Book - 1995
Rate this:
Pianists - their lives, performances, and recordings - are detailed in this text, the second of a two-volume set. Each biographical essay emphasises musical background and training, special influences on development, significant performances, and more. Performance is analysed and emphasis given to style and repertoire. For those pianists who recorded, there are selective discographies and reviews of outstanding recordings. The authors attended many performances and often supply a personal dimension to the discussions. This readable work, containing extensive documented coverage of 100 artists, should be appreciated by scholar, student and music buff alike.
