Discovering performance of music. A bit dry but not as is seems,
This review is from: Piano Notes: The Hidden World of the Pianist (Paperback)
Piano notes presents the experiences not only of Rosen himself, but anecdotal items which illustrate the difficulties pleasures and excitement of the performance of music. Where else would you discover that a CLEAN keyboard at the piano is not what a pro wants since it affects his grip on the keys!
It has been privilege, pleasure and a joy to realise that many of the difficulties that we experience at the lower levels of amateur and semi-professional performance are shared by those in the stratosphere of continuous professional engagement. An instructive and entertaining read!!!
