A very Happy Easter to those who celebrate. I hope that you are able to rest, relax and recharge during this holiday break.
This week’s post features the following master class with Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes. The class was recorded on September 3rd 2021 at the Riga Jurmala Academy and features student Ilana Lode, who currently studies at the Estonian Academy of Music and Theatre. The chosen repertoire is Chopin’s monumental Ballade No. 4 in F minor, Op. 52.
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.
