I recently posted a master class with celebrated pianist, Sir András Schiff, and judging by the stats (or number of views) on this blog that day, I think many enjoyed it! You can watch this master class here.
Sir András Schiff visited the Royal College of Music in London (pictured above) last month for a series of master classes which will no doubt be of interest to many readers. These classes were filmed on April 10th 2016 and feature several students, including Young Musician of the Year 2014 winner, Martin James Bartlett. I interviewed Martin shortly after his win and you can watch the interview here.
Public classes such as these provide fascinating insight and can be extremely helpful for those studying either the same or similar repertoire. Haydn, Schubert and Schumann are the selected composers. Enjoy!
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.
