Jump to new posts Attention to detail and Leschetizky-Schnabel "lineage" by hreichgott @ 07/28/15 12:37 PM

I recently read Leon Fleisher's memoir "My Nine Lives" and found his points about attention to the details in a score very interesting. As he tells it, this is part of the way he learned to teach from Schnabel. Since many of us in the US an

Andrew. You are right about not practicing with it until comfortable. I use for warm up and to get tempo for piece I am playing.

A wonderful Chopinist. Listening now to his account of the Preludes from the Connoisseur label remastered from 1965. And his rendition of the "Barcarolle" is just sublime, one of my favorites along with Rubenstein.

I have a question about those of you who have gone back to relearn old repertoire. Do you find relearning a piece "takes you back" to who/when you were when you learned it the first time? I recently picked up a piece to relearn that I'd

Three notes: 1. You might want to budget for loudspeakers -- several of the DP's on your list don't have any. Even in an apartment, it's nice to hear yourself "out loud" occasionally. 2. The Yamaha CP50, I think, is out of production.

I would try to network with piano teachers. If you do an excellent job tuning a piano teacher's piano,then when the teacher's students ask for recommendations they will recommend you. We use our piano teacher's tuner for example.
