I enjoy highlighting workshops and master classes, and today’s post features a class given by distinguished American pianist Emanual Ax. It was recorded in December 2014 and published in June 2015 by the Jerusalem Music Centre. This public lesson focuses on Mozart’s sublime Concerto in C minor K. 491, and it is played by Itai Navon. Ax is a prominent pedagogue and faculty member at the Juilliard School in New York.
There’s always so much to learn from master teachers, and I hope you find it interesting.
For much more information about how to practice piano repertoire, take a look at my piano course, Play it again: PIANO (published by Schott Music). Covering a huge array of styles and genres, the course features a large collection of progressive, graded piano repertoire from approximately Grade 1 to advanced diploma level, with copious 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.
