‘Reflections on Song’ is a lecture series held at The Hub as part of the Edinburgh Festival this year. It features many top singers and accompanists and I was fortunate enough to enjoy singer Ian Bostridge’s talk earlier this week. He was interviewed by Sir John Tusa who ran the Barbican Arts Centre and BBC World Service amongest other major appointments. You can read my review here.
For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my two-book piano course, Play it again: PIANO (Schott). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, 49 progressive pieces from approximately Grade 1 – 8 level are featured, with at least two pages of practice tips for every piece. A convenient and beneficial course for students of any age, with or without a teacher, and it can also be used alongside piano examination syllabuses too.
