Whatever your level of playing I feel sure we can build new vivacity and finger strength: better control, faster passages, a truer legato, a brighter sound, more depth of volume, emotion and ever deeper perception, reignite your enthusiasm, explore new composers, improvise freely, discover jazz chords, break free from previous constraints, errors and stagnation! Begin your new journey into bolder pianism today :)
To the right here watch legend pianist Andras Schiff play short excerpts from Bach French Suites. How he pulls melodic highlights from Bach's incessant quavers! How playful and detached his left hand! First notes and rhythms, practice, practice, yet there is more to perfect interpretation: what an endless task is piano learning! Always more to master, more to appreciate, more to unfold!
