The Art of Piano - Great Pianists of 20th Century, a DVD - 04/03/08 06:25 PM
My piano teacher recommended the above DVD. She implied that it is pretty much a staple for anyone seeking to improve their technique by learning from some of the world's great masters. I plan to order it, but also noticed another book entitled "The Art of the Piano: Its Performers, Literature, and Recordings (revised and expanded edition) by David Dubai. I'm not sure if it's supposed to be a companion work but it popped us a recommended book for people who bought the DVD. (I know, I'm succumbing to the marketers.) I would be interested in others' comments on the works and/or recommendations on others. Personally, I never thought of watching a DVD to improve my technique but I guess it makes sense. And I already have plenty of books that I still hope to read one day, so while I'm not necessarily looking for more, I guess I want to try to vet the Dubai book before adding yet another book to my library. Thanks.
