Jump to new posts Playing legato intervals/chords by Evaldas @ 07/29/16 01:28 PM

This has been bugging me for the past few weeks, normally I'd ask my teacher but it's summer vacation for us I was taught that if you're trying to play legato chords you can connect them by holding only on one note with a finger that won't be needed

Back to the original question, it's indeed very surprising that many pro pianists know very little about how pianos work. One example taken from the Pianomania movie is a famous pianist trying to explain a problem he finds about one key saying "

MeganR Your progress sounds great. La Bamba and Solace both have tricky rhythms in my opinion so I think your efforts on clapping the rhythm and listening to recordings is going to pay off. I don't know how you manage two big pieces like the March an

So assuming the blow distance is corrected. Is it possible that the technician did not make any let off adjustment? When I received my new Bl├╝thner Modal A the let off was excessive and this I put down to "new" compression of button felt

I've found a definition for "heterophony" here: http://www.epianostudio.com/2008/11/15/musical-texture/ It distinguishes from polyphony as follows: "Heterophonic music consists of two or more parts that are elaborating upon the same

Nahum, I don't understand why you are asking me at what point I studied heterophonic harmony, since I did not write anywhere in my post about such a thing. The question is being asked by someone with a classical background with as yet unknown backgr

No doubt the first pianos that had a metal frame and plate were very expensive. The metallic gold finish would have been appropriate. Today I love the gold glisten when I open my upright to play. Yes your red frame will "pop" as you said

For me this is like knowing my family tree. We're all affected by our ancestry but it's only one of many factors making us who we are. I like knowing the ancestors of my teachers' approaches. I also like being able to show my students how they are
